Today I’m going to share with you how easy it is to cook frozen chicken nuggets in an air fryer. I will be using my trusty Pro Breeze XL air fryer to cook the frozen chicken nuggets to perfection in less than 30 minutes.
Chicken nuggets are a family favourite in my home, it’s quick, it’s easy, and the kids love them. Frozen chicken nuggets might not be the healthiest option, but it is a massive time saver for a mother who works full time (me).
Here’s how to cook frozen chicken nuggets in an air fryer:
Place the frozen nuggets in the fry basket, you do not need to grease the fry basket for this. Try to space them out as evenly as possible and do not stack them.
Set the timer to 10 minutes and the temperature to 190°C and let it cook for 10 minutes.
When the 10 minutes are up, remove the fry basket and shake it, or use tongs to flip the nuggets over.
Set the timer for another 10 minutes and let it cook.
After the total 20 minutes are up, remove the fry basket again and check the nuggets to see if they’re crispy enough for your liking. If they are, then that’s it – done, if not – give it another shake and cook for another 3-5 minutes.
Tips and Considerations
- Try not to let any crumbs get into the air fryer when you’re putting the nuggets in. Crumbs are very small and they will likely burn way before the chicken nuggets are finished cooking.
