Air Fryer Chicken Thigh Schnitzel
Place chicken thighs, 1 at a time, between 2 sheets of parchment paper and flatten with a mallet.Advertisement
Combine bread crumbs, salt, and black pepper in a shallow bowl. Place flour in a separate shallow bowl and beaten egg in a third shallow bowl. Dip chicken thighs first in flour, then in beaten egg, and finally coat with bread crumb mixture.
Preheat an air fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Place breaded thighs in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not touching; work in batches if necessary. Mist with avocado oil and cook for 6 minutes. Flip each thigh, mist with oil, and cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes.
