Serves: 1

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes


  • 1⁄4 cup panko breadcrumbs

  • 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika

  • 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 egg, whisked

  • 130g chicken breast

  • Olive oil, for cooking

  • 1 cup Napoletana sauce

  • 10g shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. To make the crumb. In a small bowl, combine breadcrumbs, paprika, oregano, salt and pepper and mix well. Place your whisked egg in another bowl.

  2. Slice the chicken breast lengthways. Dip chicken into the egg and then into the crumb mixture, ensuring the entire fillet is covered.

  3. Add the chicken into the air fryer basket and spray with olive oil. Turn on 180 degrees Celsius for 8 minutes. Half way, turn the chicken over to lightly brown on all sides.

  4. Once timer is off, spoon Napoletana sauce over the top (enough to cover) and then top each piece of chicken with cheese. Place back in the air fryer for 4 minutes on 180 degrees Celsius.
