Can you make it ahead of time?

This chicken parm can be stuffed and dredged in the breadcrumbs earlier in the day, so all you need to do is pop it into the air fryer and you are done. If you have leftovers they will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Reheat any leftovers in your air fryer at 370F for around 4 to 5 minutes to heat through. Reheating it in the air fryer will get it nice and crispy again.

Can you make this with chicken thighs?

This recipe is easiest to make with chicken breasts, but you place the filling onto thighs and roll them before stuffing.

Be aware that thighs will take slightly longer to cook through, so use an instant read thermometer to check that the internal temperature is 165F.
