  1. Put the flour, eggs and panko into individual containers large enough for dipping the chicken.
  2. Sprinkle the chicken with the salt and pepper completely, on both sides. Dredge each cutlet in flour and shake off the excess before dipping into eggs, and then finally coating evenly with the panko breadcrumbs.
  3. Place the AirFryer Basket onto the Baking Pan. Put the prepared cutlets in the basket and spray both sides with olive oil. Put the assembled pan into Rack Position 2. Set to AirFry at 400°F for 15 minutes. Cook until chicken is evenly browned on both sides (flipping halfway through) and the internal temperature registers 165°F.
  4. Serve immediately.
