Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets


I created my version of homemade Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets, and they're irresistible! It's always so hard to resist cubes of crispy, flavorful chicken dipped in a luscious sauce. Chicken breast cubes are first dipped in seasoned egg whites and panko and then baked in the air fryer. With just a few spritzes of cooking spray, these cook up to the tastiest of morsels. They are juicy on the inside and crunchy on the outside and taste delicious. You can flavor them with your favorite seasonings to suit your mood. They're so easy to prepare, and everyone loves them. And they are so healthy and delicious.


Ingredients for Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets:


1 pound boneless chicken breast cut into 1 - 1 1/2 inch cubes

1 tablespoon of your favorite seasoning, I used Slap Ya Mama

1 1/2 cups plain panko

2 eggs whites

cooking spray

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce; I use Sweet Chili sauce from Trader Joe's


Time-Saving Tip: Cut the chicken up to a day in advance.

Beat the egg whites with a fork until lightly frothy. Add half of the spices to the egg whites and toss the other half with the panko in a pie plate or dish.




Coat the chicken with the egg white mixture and then the panko mixture. Transfer to a parchment-lined pan and lightly coat both sides with cooking spray.







Place the nuggets in a preheated 350-degree air fryer. Place the chicken in a single layer and cook for 6 minutes. Flip the nuggets cook for another 3-4 minutes until golden and cooked.



They're ready! Crisp and delicious Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets are the best. They are a breeze to prepare and perfect for meals or snacks.


Enjoy!
