Tyson Chicken Nuggets

I don’t know about you, but I love crispy chicken nuggets. I love the crisp on them, and I love a yummy sauce to dip into them.

Normally me and chicken nuggets is McDonalds with some McDonalds sweet and sour sauce. The hubby and I will often have them as a side when we have a quick lunch at the shopping centre.

I am also very fussy when it comes to chicken nuggets.

I can’t stand cheap brands of chicken nuggets. The way they don’t use any chicken breast in the chicken nuggets and instead use the rubbish from the chicken carcass.

YES! Just like most people I have seen that Jamie Oliver video where he tries to put kids off chicken nuggets by showing them what goes in them.

That is why I wanted to introduce you today to Tyson chicken nuggets in the air fryer.

You can enjoy not only a quality chicken nugget but one that is air fried rather than deep fried.

Load up your freezer with chicken nuggets and air fry them from frozen whenever you want a quick chicken nugget binge.

Or if you don’t do Tyson chicken nuggets then have a read of our air fryer frozen chicken nuggets that works with any other brand of chicken nuggets.
