These homemade Airfryer Chicken Nuggets are a delicious, healthy way to enjoy fast food at home without the guilt – you can freeze them too!
Step 1 In a large bowl, soak chicken in buttermilk for 5 min. Preheat Air fryer for 8 minutes on 400 F.
Step 2 Mix breadcrumbs, panko breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, paprika, garlic powder and salt and pepper together in another large bowl.
Step 3 Drain buttermilk from chicken pieces, then add chicken to breadcrumb mixture then toss well to coat.
Step 4 Add chicken to Airfryer once it's done preheating, adding nuggets in a single layer and spraying with cooking spray.
Step 5 Cook for 4 min, then flip and cook another 4 min. You may need to do the chicken in two batches. Serve with carrots and celery and your fave dipping sauces. Enjoy!
Freezing this Recipe You can also freeze the cooked chicken nuggets for later. Just add to a freezer bag or freezer-safe container and they will keep up to 3 months. You can reheat them from frozen as you would any other chicken nuggets. Add them to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 375F for about 20 minutes, flipping halfway through the cooking time.
