Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets
Air fryers seem to be the new rage these days. Unfortunately, I don't have one. But, my friend April does! She tested out some DP chicken breasts to make chicken nuggets in her air fryer that were munchkin approved!

Ingredients

  • (1/4 teaspoon) Salt
  • (1/8 teaspoon) Pepper
  • (1/2 cup) Unsalted Butter - Melted
  • (1/2 cup) Bread Crumbs
  • (2 tablespoons - optional) Parmesan - Grated
  • (1 breast or double the other ingredients to use both breasts) Boneless Chicken Breast - 2/pk
  • (See recipe in notes) Homemade Dried Ranch Mix

Directions

  • Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees for 4 minutes.
  • Trim any fat from chicken breast.
  • Slice into 1/2 inch thick slices, then each slice into 2-3 pieces.
  • Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper.
  • Place melted butter in a small bowl and breadcrumbs (with parmesan and ranch powder if using) in another small bowl.
  • Dip each piece of chicken in butter, then breadcrumbs.
  • Place in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to make in two batches or more.
  • Set timer to 8 minutes.
  • When done, check if the internal temperature of the chicken nuggets is at least 165 degrees.
  • Remove nuggets from the basket with tongs and set onto a plate to cool.


Seems pretty simple and delicious to me! April found this recipe on crunchycreamysweet.com.

She added the *homemade ranch mix to her bread crumbs to add more flavor. If that's not your thing, you can also use Italian bread crumbs for flavor as well.


Homemade Ranch Mix:

1 tablespoon of dried parsley

1 tablespoon of dried dill

2 teaspoons of garlic powder

2 teaspoons of onion powder

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of black pepper
