Everything Bagel Air Fryer Chicken cutlets are an easy weeknight dinner done in under 30 minutes! Serve these crispy air-fried chicken cutlets with your favorite dipping sauce for a meal the whole family will love!


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 lb chicken cutlets
  • 3/4 cup panko or gluten-free panko
  • 1/4 cup everything bagel seasoning
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup flour


  1. Preheat air fryer to 400.
  2. Combine the Panko breadcrumbs, parmesan, everything bagel seasoning, salt and pepper together in a shallow dish.
  3. Set up a three part breading station with three shallow dishes: flour, beaten eggs and water, and the breadcrumb mixture.
  4. Season the chicken with salt. Working with one or two cutlets at a time, dredge first in the flour, shaking off any excess.
  5. Then dip in egg wash
  6. Then finally dredge in the breadcrumb mixture, turning and pressing firmly on the chicken so that the mixture adheres.
  7. Spray with cooking oil if desired and place in a single layer at the bottom of an air fryer basket.
  8. Air fry 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 minutes or until internal temperature reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit with an instant thermometer. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.


Make Ahead Notes

Air fryer chicken cutlets stay good in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-4 days. Reheat them in the air fryer for a few minutes until they are hot all the way through.

If you can, only work with one hand in the dry bowls (flour and bread crumbs) and the other hand in the egg wash, so as not to bread your fingers! It makes for a much cleaner way of prepping air fried chicken!

Use a cooking spray to achieve the perfect golden brown color.

Substitute almond flour for all-purpose flour and gluten free Panko breadcrumbs if you follow a gluten free diet.
