Air Fryer Recipes

Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or chicken tenders, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (panko or regular)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Cooking spray (for greasing the air fryer basket)


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for a few minutes.
  2. In a shallow dish, combine the breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to combine.
  3. In another shallow dish, beat the eggs.
  4. Dip each piece of chicken into the beaten eggs to coat it thoroughly, allowing any excess to drip off.
  5. Roll the egg-coated chicken pieces in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing the breadcrumbs onto the chicken to ensure they stick.
  6. Place the coated chicken nuggets on a plate or tray.
  7. Lightly grease the air fryer basket with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  8. Arrange the chicken nuggets in a single layer in the air fryer basket, leaving a little space between each piece.
  9. Cook in the preheated air fryer at 375°F (190°C) for 10-12 minutes, flipping the nuggets halfway through the cooking time. The exact cooking time may vary depending on the size of your nuggets and the specific air fryer model, so be sure to check for doneness. The nuggets should be golden brown and have an internal temperature of at least 165°F (74°C).
  10. Once the chicken nuggets are cooked, remove them from the air fryer and let them cool for a few minutes before serving….
