  1. Step 1

    Place half the chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Use a meat mallet or rolling pin to gently pound until 2cm thick. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
  2. Step 2

    Combine the breadcrumbs and dukkah in a shallow bowl. Place the egg in a medium bowl. Place the flour on a plate and season. Coat each piece of chicken in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in the egg, then in the breadcrumb mixture and turn to coat. Transfer to a plate. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 mins to rest.
  3. Step 3

    Preheat air fryer to 200°C. Spray the chicken with olive oil spray. Arrange half the chicken in a single layer in the basket of the air fryer. Cook, turning halfway through cooking, for 16 mins or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining chicken.
  4. Step 4

    Meanwhile, prepare the kaleslaw kit in a bowl following packet directions.
  5. Step 5

    Divide the chicken and kaleslaw among serving plates. Season.
