Air Fryer Antipasto Chicken

Melissa Jo


  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. Complete Seasoning https://amzn.to/3dQDI0z
  • 1 tsp. Italian Herb Blend
  • salt & pepper
  • Stuffing Mixture:
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 4 oz. or 1/2 block of cream cheese
  • 4 oz. of shredded mozzarella
  • 1 tbsp. of Cherry Pepper Hoagie Spread https://amzn.to/2V5YPFp
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tbsp. Pecorino Romano grated cheese
  • 7 oz. or 1/2 can of quartered artichoke hearts squeeze dry and chopped (not marinated)
  • 10 pepperoni slices chopped
  • black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil


  • Chicken breasts should be room temperature and patted dry of any moisture. Season your chicken with the seasonings for chicken rub. Let them settle into the chicken about 30 minutes before stuffing
  • Cut 3 inch slits into the thickest part of your chicken
  • Mix together all of the ingredients for the stuffing
  • stuff the chicken breasts
  • secure the chicken closed with toothpicks or skewers
  • rub the chicken breasts with olive oil before placing in the air fryer
  • Air fry at 380 for 20-25 minutes or until the internal temperature of chicken is at 165 degrees
  • Enjoy!


  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts: No need to butterfly or pound chicken. If yours are very thick just adjust the air fryer time to a little longer.
  • Air Fryer or Oven: Both ways are delicious, but the air fryer beat out the oven in this round! Browned to perfection and maximum flavor. Here’s a link to my air fryer. It’s nice and big and SQUARE! A round air fryer is tough to fill. Check this out: https://amzn.to/35OXo0m
  • Cream Cheese: This should be at room temperature so it’s easier to stir in the ingredients to make the stuffing
  • Toothpicks or skewers: You can skip this step, but I like to make sure that all of the yummy stuffing stays put when air fry the chicken. Simple toothpicks are what I used, but skewers are commonly used for this dish.
