A tasty, low-carb dinner is air-fried pistachio chicken. The outside coating is the ideal method for enhancing the flavor with more salt and crunch.
Meal planning may be avoided by some people because they find recipes excessively difficult or uncertain about the flavor. However, it’s simple and delicious to make this pistachio-crusted chicken in an air fryer.You can use other flavors, such chili-flavored pistachios, but I chose roasted and salted pistachios. Make sure to order the pistachios already shelled if you plan to order them, as this will save you a lot of time peeling the shells.


  1. Two six-ounce chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
  2. Half a teaspoon of salt
  3. One-half teaspoon of pepper
  4. Two tsp mayonnaise
  5. half a cup of salted and roasted pistachios
  6. One tablespoon of olive oil


  • Add salt and pepper to taste and coat each chicken breast.
  • One tablespoon of mayonnaise should be spread over the top and sides of each slice. The chicken’s bottom is not a concern.
  • Place a ¼ cup of chopped pistachios on top of each piece and gently push them into the mayonnaise to coat the whole thing.
  • Depending on thickness, cook at 370 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 18 minutes.


  • Use ¼ cup chopped pistachios and 1 spoonful of mayonnaise per piece of chicken if you need to cook more than two. Adjust seasoning to taste.
  • Depending on the thickness of the chicken, cooking times may need to be changed.
  • The internal temperature of chicken should be 165.
  • Weight Watchers: To make this approximately 6–8 points, substitute low-fat mayonnaise or sour cream.
