Sesame Encrusted Air Fryer Chicken

Make beautiful sesame encrusted chicken strips in your air fryer
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes


  • 2 cooked chicken breasts cut into strips
  • 2 eggs
  • 6-8 tbsp sesame seeds (mix of black and white)
  • ½-1 cup all-purpose or cake flour
  • kosher salt to taste


  • Cut your chicken into 2 inch wide strips
  • Add flour, eggs, and sesame seeds to each of their own containers. Do not mix them together.
  • One at a time, dredge the chicken into the flour first, then egg, and then finally the sesame seeds. Place on a plate while you finish the rest.
  • Place the chicken in your air fryer. Spray with non-stick spray.
  • Cook for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees until flour underneath the seeds has browned and doesn't appear "floury"


If you want to make this with raw chicken, make these 2 changes
  • Lower the temperature to 350 degrees
  • Increase the cook time to 15 minutes
The internal temperature of the chicken should be 165 degrees
