    How To Air Fry Schnitzel?



Frozen. If cooking air fryer frozen schnitzel, then you can bypass above. Instead load up to 4 frozen schnitzels into the air fryer basket and cook for 8 minutes at 180c/360f. Turn with tongs and cook for a final 8 minutes at 160c/320f.
Measurements. Its not essential to measure out the ingredients in this recipe. Simply fill a bowl with flour and fill a bowl with breadcrumbs. You can always add in more if you run out.
Overcrowding. Air fryer sizes differ, and I recommend for a medium air fryer to only cook two at once.
Quality Chicken. If you are looking for a quality chicken breasts to cook in the air fryer, I recommend Butcher Box. Their chicken breasts come to you frozen and you can remove the packaging and load the chicken straight into the air fryer.
