🍗The Best Way To Make Frozen Chicken Nuggets

While you can make frozen chicken nuggets in the oven or microwave, air frying them is definitely the best way to cook them! The air fryer uses dry circulating heat to crisp up the outside of the nuggets and cook them evenly throughout. You don’t have to worry about soggy chicken nuggets or uneven cooking like you do when you cook them in the oven. Plus, you don’t have to worry about deep frying them or adding extra oil!

There are many different kinds of frozen chicken nuggets you can buy that will work with this method. Popular brands include Tyson, Perdue, Great Value, Applegate, Just Bare and a kids favorite, Dino Buddies!

📖How To Make Frozen Chicken Nuggets In Air Fryer

1️⃣Preheat the air fryer: Preheat the air fryer to 375°F for 3-5 minutes.

2️⃣Add the frozen chicken nuggets: Place the frozen chicken nuggets in a single layer in the air fryer basket. The nuggets should not be touching each other or overlapping.

3️⃣Air fry chicken nuggets: Cook for 8-10 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking time. The cooking time will depend on the size of your nuggets and how crispy you want them.

4️⃣Cool and serve: Let cool for a few minutes before eating, and serve them with your favorite dipping sauces!

The best time and temperature to air fry frozen chicken nuggets will depend on a few factors, including the type of air fryer you are using and the size of your nuggets. For most frozen chicken nuggets, 10 minutes at 375F flipping halfway will work for most chicken nuggets. Feel free to add 2-3 minutes of cooking time as needed.
