Get Your Fry On: Air Fryer Chicken Goujons Recipe

Fried chicken is a beloved classic, but let's face it - it's not the healthiest option out there. Enter the air fryer, a miracle kitchen gadget that promises to provide all the fried goodness with less oil and fewer calories. Today, we're going to put it to the test with an air fryer chicken goujons recipe that is sure to satisfy your cravings and leave you feeling guilt-free. So, can we really cook chicken goujons in an air fryer? Let's find out!


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons paprika

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F.

  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.

  3. In another medium bowl, beat the eggs.

  4. In a third medium bowl, mix together the panko breadcrumbs.

  5. Take each strip of chicken and coat it in the flour mixture, making sure to shake off any excess.

  6. Dip the chicken strip into the beaten eggs, then coat it in the panko breadcrumbs.

  7. Once the air fryer is preheated, place the chicken goujons into the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure they are not touching each other.

  8. Cook for 8-10 minutes, flipping the chicken halfway through. The chicken is done when it is golden brown and the internal temperature reaches 165°F.

Pro Tips and Variations:

  • If you want to add some extra flavor, try mixing your breadcrumbs with some grated Parmesan cheese or Italian seasoning.

  • Swap out the chicken breast for chicken thighs or even tofu for a vegetarian twist!

  • If your air fryer isn't big enough to cook all the chicken goujons at once, don't overcrowd the basket. Cook in batches so the chicken cooks evenly.

Air fryer chicken goujons are a game-changer for fried food lovers who don't want to sacrifice their health. Not only are they crispy and delicious, they're also easy to make and a great option for a quick weeknight dinner. So go ahead, get your fry on, and enjoy this guilt-free treat!
