  • 20 oz skinless boneless chicken breasts divide into 8 (or 4) pieces
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp sriracha
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg medium
  • 2 tbsp whole milk
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup plain panko breadcrumbs
  • 0.25 oz parmesan grated
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp Japanese mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 2 oz lettuce picked and cleaned
  • 4 oz tomatoes sliced
  • 1 oz red onions sliced


  • Marinate 8 pieces of chicken breast (20 oz) with 1 tbsp olive oil, 2 tsp sriracha, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp pepper, and 1/4 tsp salt. Make sure every piece of chicken gets seasoned evenly. Preheat the air fryer to 350°F.
    step 1: Marinate the chicken.
  • Beat 1 medium egg with 2 tbsp milk in a bowl.
    step 2: Make the egg mixture.
  • Combine 1 tbsp melted butter, 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, and 0.25 oz parmesan in another bowl.
    step 3: Mix the breadcrumbs.
  • Place 1/4 cup all-purpose flour into a large dish. Take a piece of chicken with your dry hand, dip it in the flour, and shake to remove the excess.
    step 4: Coat the chicken in flour.
  • Dredge it over the egg mixture with your wet hand, flip, and allow the excess to drip off.
    step 5: Dredge it over the egg mixture.
  • Place it into the breadcrumbs, use your dry hand to sprinkle the breadcrumbs onto the chicken, then press to coat both of its sides. Place it onto a rack or a baking sheet. Repeat to coat the remaining pieces.
    step 6: Coat it in breadcrumbs. Repeat with the other pieces.
  • Lay all of the pieces into the air fryer basket in a single layer (fry multiple batches if necessary), and air-fry for 10 minutes. Flip at the 7th minute.
    step 7: Air-fry them.
  • While the chicken’s cooking, combine 2 tbsp Japanese mayonnaise with 1 tbsp Greek yogurt in a bowl. Optional: toast the buns in a non-stick pan over medium heat until warm.
    step 8: Get the burger components ready.
  • Assemble the burger and enjoy!
    step 9: Assemble and enjoy!
