2 chicken breasts – split in half, lengthwise

1/4 cup of pickle juice (drain from jar)

1 tsp of garlic powder

1 tsp of paprika

1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper

2 eggs

1/4 cup of 1% milk

1/2 cup of flour

4 Lite Hamburger Buns

1 head of romaine lettuce

1 tomato sliced


Split your chicken breasts in half lengthwise. Add them to a zip lock bag and pour in the pickle juice. Let that marinate in your fridge for 1 hr.

In a shallow dish add the flour and spices. In another shallow dish add the eggs and milk and whisk them to combine.

Take your chicken breast out of the bag with a tong and dip them in the egg wash first and then the flour mixture.

Add your chicken to the air fryer basket and spray one side of the chicken breast.

Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees. Set the timer to 7 minutes.

Once the 7 minutes is done, open up your air fryer and flip the chicken. Spray again and close the basket. Set the timer for another 4 minutes.

Serve the chicken on a bun with lettuce and tomatoes.
