3

Arrange the pieces in a single layer in your air fryer basket. You may need to air fry these in two batches, if you can't fit all 8 cutlets in your basket in a single layer without overcrowding them - that will depend on the size of your basket. You can also use a rack, if you have one. Cook on 370 for 20 minutes, shaking the cutlets gently after 10 minutes, to prevent sticking. Repeat with the second batch, if needed.
