Notes

AIR FRYER FROZEN CHICKEN NUGGET TIPS

WILL TYSON CHICKEN NUGGETS WORK IN THE AIR FRYER?

Yes, Tyson chicken nuggets will work in the air fryer. Honestly, just about every frozen chicken nugget that you find can work in the air fryer! Whether you are using name branded Tyson Chicken Nuggets or using a store brand, you should be good!

WILL VEGGIE NUGGETS WORK IN THE AIR FRYER?

Yes, veggie nuggets or vegetarian nuggets will air fry perfectly. When making them, I’ve found that you need to lessen the cooking time. I typically cook my frozen veggie nuggets at the same temp as above but lessen the cooking time to 6-8 minute.

CAN I STACK MY CHICKEN NUGGETS IN THE AIR FRYER?

I would not stack the nuggets in the air fryer. I would spread them out side by side in your air fryer basket or air fryer tray. They can touch sides, but should not be stacked. This can affect cook time.
