These cheesy chicken sticks are guaranteed to become a crowd favourite, whether they are served at game nights, family get-togethers, or just anytime you’re seeking something savoury. Now let’s start cooking by lighting the air fryer.


  1. 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  2. 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  3. 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  4. 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (you can use seasoned breadcrumbs for extra flavor)
  5. 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  6. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  7. Salt and pepper to taste
  8. 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  9. 2 eggs, beaten
  10. Cooking spray or olive oil spray


  1. For around five minutes, preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Slice the chicken breasts into slender, one-inch-wide strips.
  3. Combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish.
  4. Transfer the flour to a different shallow dish.
    Transfer the beaten eggs to a third shallow dish.
    Each chicken strip should be evenly coated with the breadcrumb mixture after being dipped in the beaten eggs and coated in flour first. Continue doing this with every chicken strip.
  5. To keep the air fryer basket from sticking, mist it with cooking or olive oil spray.
  6. In order to allow for air circulation, arrange the coated chicken strips in the air fryer basket in a single layer with some space between them.
  7. Coat the tops of the chicken pieces very lightly with cooking or olive oil spray.
  8. The chicken strips should be fried for 8 to 10 minutes in the air fryer, turning them halfway through, or until they are thoroughly cooked and golden brown.
  9. After the chicken strips are cooked, cover each strip with shredded mozzarella cheese.
  10. Once the cheese is melted and bubbling, return the chicken strips to the air fryer and cook for a further one to two minutes.
  11. The chicken strips should be carefully taken out of the air fryer and served hot with your preferred dipping sauce, like marinara.
