Air Fryer Cheese And Onion Chicken fillet Recipe

My quick and easy air fryer recipe for delicious cheese and onion chicken fillets. A rich dish that is smothered in cheese and has a fairly strong taste of onion to complement the cheese.

Chicken fillets are the flesh portion of the chicken breast. If you do not have a chicken fillet but do have a chicken breast, simply remove the skin and then carefully remove flesh from the bone and cartilage.
