Air Fryer Parmesan Crusted Chicken is keto friendly and low carb. The chicken has a coating made from yogurt, parmesan and almond flour.
This is one of the best chicken breast recipes ever! The chicken is perfectly crispy on the outside, but still moist and tender on the inside. Rather than breading the chicken with egg and breadcrumbs, this recipe is a little different.
First, you spread Greek yogurt over the top of the chicken. Then, you press the mixture of parmesan cheese, almond flour and spices over the top. SO much easier and less time consuming than breading each piece!
Ingredients in this recipe
- thin skinless and boneless chicken breasts
- plain Greek yogurt
- grated parmesan cheese
- almond flour
- fresh chopped rosemary
- Italian seasoning
- garlic powder
- ground black pepper
- avocado oil spray
