How To Make Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets

In this post, we are going to learn how to make air fryer chicken nuggets. I have a daughter who enjoys eating chicken nuggets. It is her favorite dish.


To make this you need the following ingredients.
  • 12 cream or plain crackers
  • 2 skinless chicken breast fillets
  • Cut into 2-3 cm pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves (optional)
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp dry parsley or 4 springs fresh parsley (optional)
  • Plain flour
  • 1 lemon (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


To make the air fried chicken nuggets you need to follow the following steps.

  • Preheat the air fryer to 400°F.
  • To prepare the chicken, peel the garlic and zest the lemon.
  • Put the crackers into a food processor with the butter, garlic, parsley, lemon zest and a pinch of salt and pepper, then process until the mixture is very fine.
  • Pour these crumbs onto a plate.
  • Sprinkle the flour onto a second plate, then crack the eggs into a small bowl and beat with a fork.
  • Roll the chicken pieces in the flour until all sides are completely coated, then dip them into the egg, followed by the flavored crumbs.
  • Rub the crumbs onto the chicken pieces so that they stick; the chicken pieces should be totally coated.
  • Spray the chicken pieces on all sides with the oil and cook them in the non-stick coated cooking basket for approximately 10-15 minutes or until cooked through, golden and crisp.
Below is a video demonstration of how this can be done.
