Chicken Schnitzel Toasties


4 Chicken Breast Fillets
100g Panko Breadcrumbs
20g Parmesan Cheese
1 Egg
2 tbsp Milk
50g Plain Flour
250g shaved Ham
140g Pizza Cheese


  1. Place a chicken breast in between two pieces of cling wrap. Use a mallet or rolling pin to pound out until 2cm thick. Repeat with remaining chicken.
  2. Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan in a medium bowl. Whisk together the egg and milk in a separate bowl. Place the flour on a plate and season.
  3. Dip the chicken in the flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg, then breadcrumb mixture, pressing firmly to coat. Transfer to a tray. Cover and place in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  4. Preheat the air fryer to 200 degrees for 3 minutes. Spray the chicken with olive oil spray. Arrange half the chicken in a single layer in the basket of the air fryer. Set the timer for 12 minutes. Cook, turning chicken halfway through, until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
  5. Cut two of the chicken schnitzels in half crossways. Top two chicken halves with half of the ham and other two halves with the pizza cheese. Return halves to the air fryer basket. Set the timer for 3 minutes. Cook until cheese is melted. Sandwich the chicken halves together to form a "toastie".
