  • One tablespoon of chopped red bell pepper
  • One tablespoon of chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt (adjust according to taste). Use as much as½ teaspoon. refer to note 2
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • Two tablespoons of milk
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Two tablespoons of shredded cheese (you can use cheddar or any other type).

Instructions For the Recipe:


  • Set aside a 6-inch baking pan that has been greased with oil.
  • Crack the eggs into a bowl, then whisk together the milk, Chicken, bell peppers, red pepper flakes, and chopped onions with the eggs.
  • Fill the baking pan with oil, then air fry for 8 to 10 minutes at 350°F. If using, sprinkle cheese over top in the final minute of cooking.
  • Slide the omelette out of the pan with a spatula and serve with your preferred sides.



  • There’s no need to preheat.
  • Your taste will determine how much salt is needed. I suggest starting with 1 tsp with chicken or as per taste. When preparing a simple omelette, you may add as much as ½ teaspoon of salt.
  • Garlic powder or any other flavouring you choose can be added to change up your seasoning.
  • Use only fully cooked mix ins for your air fryer omelette.

  • The omelette is made fluffy and juicy by the air fryer.
  • Because it requires less oil, it’s a healthy breakfast choice.

The amount of time it takes to cook an omelette in an air fryer might vary depending on a few things, such as the temperature you cook at, whether you preheat it, and how many eggs you cook. As is always the case, air fryers work differently.

Without preheating, my air fryer omelette usually cooks in 8 to 10 minutes at 350°F. Keep an eye on the omelette and inspect it with a toothpick to make sure it’s cooked through—if it comes out clean, the omelette is done.


Any leftover omelette can be kept in the fridge for up to three days in an airtight container. You can use an air fryer or microwave to reheat.

To reheat in the air fryer, just put the omelette in the basket and cook for two to three minutes, or until thoroughly heated, at 350°F.

Reheat in the microwave at 20 secs intervals till warmed through.


  • Making an omelette using an air fryer doesn’t require preheating.
  • To keep the basket from sticking, coat it with a tiny bit of oil or use nonstick frying spray.
  • Try varying the fillings by trying different combinations of spinach, bacon, onions, mushrooms, and tomatoes.
  • Once done, gently remove the omelette from the pan by swiping a silicone spatula around it.
  • You can use Parmesan cheese in place of the cheddar cheese for an extra crispy texture. In the final minute of cooking, top the omelette with a little grated Parmesan cheese.
