  • 24 boneless chicken breasts

Egg Mixture:

Piccata Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth

  1. I always start preparing my chicken, by trimming all of the white parts (fat) of the chicken, just use a sharp knife.
  2. Start by using your mallet and pound your chicken until they are mostly flat. I wrap my chicken in saran wrap, which keeps the chicken in place, while you use the mallet to flatten the chicken.
  3. Once the chicken is flattened, remove it from the saran wrap, and place it on a cutting board. While you get the breading and egg mixture ready.
  4. In one bowl, mix the egg, lemon juice, and garlic powder.
  5. In another bowl, mix together the flour, Parmesan cheese, parsley, and salt.
  6. Then dip your chicken into the flour mixture, then the egg mixture, and then the flour mixture.
  7. As you coat the chicken place them in your air fryer.
  8. Once you are all done coating your chicken, spray them with olive oil spray (the entire chicken breast, otherwise you will get white spots on your chicken)
  9. Set the temperature for 370 degrees F, for 7 minutes.
  10. After 7 minutes, flip and air fry for another 7 minutes.
  11. When the time is up, make sure that the internal temperature reads at least: 165 degrees F.
  12. Meanwhile, make the sauce:
    In a small saucepan, melt the butter, add 3 tablespoons of lemon juice, and the chicken brother, boil until the sauce is hot.
  13. Place the chicken breasts on a plate, drizzle the sauce over the chicken.
  14. Plate, serve, and enjoy!
