  • 1 (6 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 1 large egg

  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs

  • ¼ teaspoon cantanzaro herbs (such as Savory Spice Shop®) or Italian seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

  • nonstick cooking spray


  1. Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 5 minutes.

  2. Combine egg, whipping cream, and 1/2 of the salt in a bowl. Whisk until yellow and frothy.

  3. Mix panko, herbs. and remaining salt together in a separate shallow bowl until well combined.

  4. Dip chicken pieces first into egg mixture, followed by panko, and set in the air fryer basket.

  5. Air-fry for 13 minutes, shaking the basket every 5 minutes. Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Air-fry until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear and Parmesan is melted, about 2 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

Cantanzaro herbs are available from the Savory Spice Shop®, but are not the same as Italian seasoning, although Italian seasoning may be used.
