  • An Air Fryer
  • Frozen Chicken Nuggets


  • 10 pieces of Chicken Nuggets Packaged


  • Bring out the bag of frozen chicken nuggets of your favorite brand from the refrigerator. Add the nuggets into the air fryer basket. The amount of nuggets that you wish to fry depends completely on yourself. However, don't add too many nuggets in to the basket. This is because overlapping the chicken nuggets on one another will result the cooking to not happen efficiently and the nuggets won't be properly crisped.
  • Close the lid of your air fryer and set the temperature at 400 degrees and allow the
    chicken nuggets to cook for 12 minutes.
  • Your job does not end after step 2. You will need to remove the lid and flip the chicken nuggets to the other side right after 5 or 6 minutes. This is because you need to make both the sides of the nuggets evenly crisp. Close the lid again after flipping is done. And only open after the timer is up.
  • This is an optional step. If you want the nuggets to be crispier than usual, take more time for cooking the nuggets. For doing so, you can add a few more minutes while setting up the timer. Or leave the nuggets in the basket after the timer is over instead of removing them immediately.
  • Once you are done with the cooking chicken nuggets in air fryer plate them right away and enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce.
