Air Fryer Parmesan Chicken Bites

Applause from the other side of the table! This recipe is from the All Recipes site.
I did make a small edit. I added Cornstarch to the Panko bread crumb mixture. It helps crisp up the coating in the air fryer. I used Chicken Tenders instead of the whole breast. That sped up the production a bit. The meal came together in less than 30 minutes.

6 ounces chicken tenders, cut into bite-size pieces
1 large egg
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
nonstick cooking spray

Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F for 5 minutes.

Combine egg, whipping cream, and 1/2 of the salt in a bowl. Whisk until yellow and frothy.

Mix panko, corn starch, herbs, and remaining salt together in a separate shallow bowl until well combined.

Dip chicken pieces first into the egg mixture, followed by panko, and set in the air fryer basket.

Air-fry for 13 minutes, shaking the basket every 5 minutes. The cooking time depends on how big or small you cut the chicken breasts (or Chicken Tenders)
Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Air-fry until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear and Parmesan is melted.
An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165˚
