Air Fryer Shake and Bake Chicken turns out so crispy and juicy with just 15 minutes in the air fryer! Such a simple, quick dinner with all of that classic flavor we grew up eating.



  • 4 chicken breasts boneless and skinless, about 1.5 pounds total
  • 1 box Shake ‘N Bake Original Chicken


  • Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees.
  • While air fryer is preheating, pound the chicken out to an even thickness. Moisten chicken with water.
  • Dump the packet of breading in a large ziptop plastic bag or in a shallow dish.
  • Add the chicken to the breading, one piece at a time, turning the chicken to fully coat it in the breading.
  • Remove the basket from the air fryer and spritz with non-stick spray. Add the chicken in a single layer leaving space between each piece for air to flow. Depending on the size of your air fryer you may need to work in batches. For extra crisp breading, spritz with oil spray.
  • Air fry for 5 minutes, flip the chicken pieces, and spritz again with oil. Cook for 5 more minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees using a meat thermometer.
  • Serve hot.


This recipe should work well with chicken thighs as well. Adjust cook time as needed.

This recipe should work well with any variety of Shake ‘N Bake breading varieties.
