Paleo Whole30 Air Fryer Breaded Chicken



  • Combine the sunflower seed flour, salt, and Italian seasoning in a shallow bowl. 
  • Turn the air fryer on to 375° and remove the wire rack (if using the Cuisinart one).  
  • Coat the chicken with the oil and dip it in the flour mixture, pressing onto the chicken to coat evenly. Place on the wire rack, spray with a little 100% avocado oil if you have it. 
  • Cook for 6 minutes, flip and then cook for 4 more minutes. If there are thicker pieces, remove the smaller ones and let the thicker ones cook for an additional 2 minutes. 
  • Reheat leftovers by cooking them in the air fryer for 3 minutes at 375°. 


*I linked to one you can buy, but it is way cheaper to just make your own with sunflower seeds in a blender or food processor. Use raw sunflower seeds and blend until flour consistency, it should take under a minute. 
**Make sure the Italian seasoning doesn't have onion or garlic. The one I linked doesn't.
