Deep-frying can be tricky and not always the healthiest choice. However, with this simple recipe, you can enjoy your favorite dish without the hassle and excess fat.

Try cooking chicken in the air fryer. This method, as SSPDaily writes, uses heated air and also has less fat and calories.

Air frying offers a healthier alternative to fried foods without sacrificing flavor and texture.

Some recipes may call for a light coating of oil before air frying, while others do not require it.

For this specific recipe, you will need:

  • eggs
  • flour
  • breadcrumbs
  • parsley
  • garlic powder
  • dried oregano
  • dried basil
  • salt
  • some olive oil

Preparation:

Cut chicken fillet into pieces. Beat two eggs with half a teaspoon of salt in a bowl. Add wheat flour.

In a separate bowl, combine breadcrumbs, garlic powder, oregano, basil and remaining salt.

1. Dip each piece of fillet in flour.

2. Then dip them in egg mixture

3. Then dip them in spices and breadcrumbs.

4. Make sure all sides are coated.

Spray the air fryer basket with olive oil and place the prepared chicken in a single layer. You need to work in batches.

Cook the chicken for about 10 minutes at 190 degrees.

Serve with a sauce of your choice.

Recommendations for better cooking chicken nuggets

  • Before adding the chicken, preheat the air fryer well for 5 minutes. This will ensure even cooking and the crispiest possible crust.
  • Do not overload the container. Make sure that air passes between each piece of fillet to make them crispy and not stick together.
  • Do not be lazy when working with small batches.
  • Spray the air fryer basket before each batch to prevent the chicken from sticking to the basket.
  • Ranch, barbecue, or mustard sauce is suitable for chicken nuggets.

How to make hot sriracha sauce (see-raj-cha)

This is a spicy version of chili sauce in a less spicy version, where the chili pepper content is only 36%.

You need to mix 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise and 2 teaspoons of hot chili pepper.

How do I know when the nuggets are ready?

Cooking time depends on the size of the chicken. The internal temperature should be at least 75 degrees Celsius.

Do I need to shake the container with the chicken?

This is not a necessary process but it will help make your chicken crispier.

How do I store and reheat leftover chicken nuggets?

It is better to use the chicken immediately after cooking. However, they can be stored in the refrigerator in a closed container. You can reheat them in an air fryer.

Can I cook frozen nuggets in the air fryer?

Yes, it is possible. However, you will get the best results if you increase the cooking time and preheat the air fryer. Make sure the temperature is safe before adding the chicken.
