Air Fryer Stuffed Chicken Breasts

These filled chicken breasts from the air fryer are really flavorful! They have a Parmesan crust and are stuffed with a delectable combination of prosciutto, bell pepper, spinach, and feta. You can cook meat in an air fryer without using your oven, and they work incredibly well with it. Enjoy these stuffed chicken breasts alongside a simple green salad and some crusty bread, or cut them into 1/2-inch slices and serve them as a hearty appetizer.

Components Filling:

  1. Two tablespoons of pure olive oil
  2. Diced red onion, ½ cup
  3. Diced red bell pepper, ½ cup
  4. ½ cup of fresh mushrooms, chopped
  5. ½ cup of freshly chopped spinach
  6. one tsp finely chopped garlic
  7. One-half tsp dried Italian spice
  8. To taste, add salt and ground black pepper.
  9. ½ cup of feta cheese in crumbles


  1. Four skinless and boneless chicken breasts
  2. four prosciutto slices
  3. One huge egg that has been beaten
  4. Grated ¾ cup of Parmesan cheese
  5. ½ cup of finely ground, dry bread crumbs
  6. 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  7. To taste, add salt and ground black pepper.
  8. avocado oil cooking spray


  1. Prepare the filling: In a small skillet set over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add onion and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until softened. Add the bell pepper and mushrooms, and simmer for approximately 3 minutes, stirring now and again, until softened.
  2. Take off the heat and add the garlic and spinach, stirring until the spinach begins to wilt a little. Add salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning to taste. Give it ten minutes to cool. Add the feta cheese, being careful to break up any big chunks.
  3. Get the chicken ready: After drying off, place the chicken on a chopping board. Using a knife, cut a pocket in each breast by slicing parallel to the cutting board through the thickest part of the breast, leaving about 1 inch at each tip. Take cautious not to cut through the breast’s weakest edge completely.
  4. If preheating is advised by the manufacturer, preheat an air fryer to 370 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).
  5. Slices of prosciutto should be separated and placed on a clean surface. Top each slice with two teaspoons of filling, then wrap the prosciutto around the filling to form an oblong bundle. Place a bundle inside each cut chicken breast and use a few toothpicks to seal the opening.
  6. Transfer the whisked egg into a small bowl. In another shallow bowl, mix together Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, parsley, salt, and pepper. Each filled chicken breast is dipped in beaten egg and then coated with a combination of bread crumbs. Place in the air fryer basket after giving each side a quick cooking spray application.
  7. Cook the chicken for about 15 minutes on each side in the preheated air fryer, or until browned. If you stick an instant-read thermometer in the middle of the meat, it should read at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit (74 degrees Celsius).


In the air fryer that has been prepared, cook the chicken for approximately 15 minutes on each side, or until browned. An instant-read thermometer inserted in the centre of the meat should register a minimum temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit, or 74 degrees Celsius.
