How to make air fryer chicken nuggets
Besides the preparation of the chicken, the rest of the time spent making these nuggets is pretty minimal.
Here’s how to make perfect air fryer chicken nuggets:
Step 1- Preheat the air fryer
First, preheat the air fryer to 200°C/400°F.
Step 2- Make the nuggets coating
Grab a mixing bowl and add the panko, parmesan cheese, salt, and oil. Mix with a fork until combined. In a second bowl, add the flour, and in a third bowl, add the beaten eggs.
Step 3- Dredge the nuggets
Dip the chicken nuggets in the flour, then shake off the excess and dip it in the egg, then coat it in the panko mix. Press firmly to make sure the panko sticks to the nuggets. Repeat this process until all of the chicken nuggets have been coated.
Step 4- Air fry the nuggets
Generously grease the air fryer basket with oil. In a single layer, add the chicken nuggets, working in batches if needed.
Spray the tops of the chicken nuggets and air fry them for 12-15 minutes or until they’re golden and crispy. Repeat this as necessary until all of the nuggets are cooked.
