Questions & Replies

  1. Could you please add the air fryer temperature setting to use to your recipe? Also, is the recipe designed for a certain size air fryer? Thank you. This recipe sounds tasty.
  2. I'm a new owner of an Air Fryer. I'm confused on if I press the Air Fryer or Bake button. None of the recipes I've seen specify what I should use.
  3. While the second batch is in the fryer, do you recommend keeping the first batch warm in the oven at a certain temperature? Covered? Uncovered? Thanks!
  4. I have an air fryer and I can set it to many temperatures. What temperature are you using to cook your Chicken Parmesan at?


  1. A great take on a healthier version of a classic! It was super easy to make in the air fryer. Highly recommend to anyone!
  2. So good! Used two chicken breasts with full topping ingredients. Air fried at 375 degrees for about five minutes per side. Came out crunchy on the outside, and moist and tender on the inside. Air fryer cooking moves right along, so it's a good idea to have your sides ready before you start. Can always keep them in a warm oven until ready to eat. If air frying in batches, tent the chicken with foil and keep warm in a 170 degree oven.
