CAN YOU COOK FROZEN CHICKEN NUGGETS STRAIGHT FROM THE FREEZER?

Answer: Yes you definitely can and you don’t need to thaw these. They’re super simple to air fry because these frozen nuggets are already pre-cooked. So you’re essentially just heating them up to be crispy.


HOW TO COOK AIR FRIED FROZEN CHICKEN NUGGETS IN THE AIR FRYER

  • Depending on the size and thickness of the nuggets, they’ll cook between about 10- 12 minutes.

  • Do you need to oil spray? Since these frozen chicken nuggets are already pre-fried, we don’t feel you need to add extra oil. You’ll see all the oil release at the bottom of the air fryer. It’s less greasy if you DON’T add extra oil spray.

  • Lay them in a single layer and leave a little space between the nuggets. You want the hot circulating air to crisp all sides and edges of the nuggets. If they’re too close or stacked onto of each other, they won’t cook evenly.


BEST BRAND OF FROZEN CHICKEN NUGGETS FOR THE AIR FRYER?

There’s so many different brands with different sizes and thicknesses of the chicken nuggets. Do a test batch first for a small handful. After cooking your first few nuggets, you’ll know more of how long and temp is best for your brand. Also, the more you cook, the longer it will take to get crispy. So you should be flexible and check to make sure the nuggets are cooked though. Organic brands of frozen chicken nuggets are perfect for cooking in the fryer too. You can eat more chicken nuggets and eat consciously with organic brands!


WHAT ARE THE BEST DIPPING SAUCES FOR AIR FRYER CHICKEN NUGGETS?


Zesty Sriracha Swagger: Spice up your life with a Sriracha mayo that's as fiery as your attitude. Mix mayo and Sriracha in a sassy dance of creaminess and heat. It's like a flavor fiesta for your taste buds that'll make your nuggets shimmy with joy.

Honey Mustard Bliss: Get ready to elevate your nuggets to the next level with a honey mustard concoction that's sweet, tangy, and totally irresistible. Mix honey, Dijon mustard, and a hint of vinegar for a dipping sauce that'll have your taste buds doing the cha-cha.

Ranch Rendezvous: Because no dipping sauce lineup is complete without the classic cool kid on the block – ranch. But we're not talking about just any ranch. Mix in some fresh herbs, a pinch of garlic powder, and a dash of sass. It's ranch with an attitude, and it's here to party.

Sweet Chili Samba: Turn your nuggets into a dance party with a sweet chili sauce that's a little bit sweet, a little bit spicy, and a whole lot of fabulous. Mix sweet chili sauce with a splash of lime juice for a tangy twist that'll make your taste buds salsa.
