Servings 6


  • Air Fryer


  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup finely processed Nut-Thins cracker crumbs see pro tip below
  • 1 ½ lbs thinly sliced chicken breast or strips
  • Salt pepper and garlic powder to taste
  • Olive oil spray


  • Put flour, eggs and processed crackers into individual containers large enough for dipping the chicken.
  • Sprinkle the chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder on both sides. Dredge each cutlet in flour and shake off the excess before dipping into egg, and then finally coating evenly with the cracker crumbs.
  • Place the prepared cutlets in the air fryer basket and spray both sides liberally with olive oil spray. Set the air fryer to 400°F for 15 minutes.  Cook until chicken is evenly browned on both side (flipping halfway through) and the internal temperature registers 165°F.
  • Serve immediately.


Place Nut-Thins in a food processor and pulse until they reach the consistency of panko bread crumbs.
