Dip 1 chicken cutlet in dressing, turning until coated. Lightly coat both sides of cutlet with breadcrumbs and transfer to plate. Repeat with remaining chicken.

Air-fry chicken until golden and crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Lift out basket. Turn chicken over and spread 2 tbsp marinara sauce on each cutlet. Sprinkle each with 1 tbsp mozzarella and 1 tbsp Parmesan.
