Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Sandwiches

  • 4 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 T. mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. Cajun seasoning
  • 2 ½ c. cornflakes
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. smoked paprika
  • 4 brioche buns, toasted
  • ¼ red onion, sliced thin
  • 1 c. coleslaw, divided
  • Mustard, mayo, hot honey, hot sauce, etc - for serving

Preheat your air fryer to 400°F.

Mix the mayonnaise and Cajun seasoning together. Spread the mayonnaise mixture evenly on the chicken breasts - I like to use a brush. Set aside.

Combine the next 5 ingredients (cornflakes through smoked paprika) in a food processor and process until crumbs form. Coat each chicken breast in the crumb mixture and place on a wire rack until ready to air fry.

Fry the chicken breasts in the preheated air fryer for 18 minutes, turning once about halfway through the cooking process.

While the chicken cooks, toast the buns and arrange condiments, red onion, and coleslaw on them. Add the hot chicken as soon as it's done cooking. Serve warm.
