Best Air Fryer For Tyson Frozen Chicken?

The best air fryer for Tyson frozen chicken is the air fryer basket type. That is because it does the best job of making chicken crispy, something that an air fryer oven does an okay job at, but not an amazing job.

We have the Philips Air Fryer XL, but the Power Air Fryer XL or the Cosori Air Fryer are also great options.

The countdown begins below with the lowest score, going all the way up to number 10 which is our personal favourite.

#1 Tyson Grilled Chicken Breast Strips

Tyson grilled chicken breast strips are perfect for salads and meal prep and are cooked fast in the air fryer. Also perfect for a quick healthy dinner as you can cook the grilled chicken from frozen.

  • Rating: 1/10
  • Temp: 165c/330F
  • Time: 7 minutes
  • Tip: I recommend seasoning with salt and pepper before cooking. You can also season the grilled chicken with your favourite dried rub for a better flavour.

#2 Tyson Chicken Fries

Tyson chicken fries is one of those foods that you associate most with Burger King, then you do with your air fryer.

Delicious chicken that are in the shape of thick French fries that you can dunk into your favourite sauce. Worth a try in the air fryer next time you see some when grocery shopping.

  • Rating: 2/10
  • Temp: 170c/340F
  • Time: 8 minutes
  • Tip: Because you want your chicken fries crispy, I recommend spraying with a little extra virgin olive oil or a similar oil. This will help crisp them up.

#3 Tyson Honey BBQ Wings

Tyson Honey BBQ Wings step by step

Tyson honey BBQ wings is fantastic for a quick dump into the air fryer and then come back to perfectly cooked chicken wings from frozen.

Its getting a lower score because the honey BBQ marinade is not as good as others in the Tyson chicken wings range.

  • Rating: 3/10
  • Temp: 180c/360F
  • Time: 10 minutes
  • Tip: For an even cook halfway through rotate the honey BBQ wings with kitchen tongs.

#4 Tyson Chicken Patties

Tyson chicken patties step by step

Tyson chicken patties are very quick and a mess free way of cooking in the air fryer.

Don’t you hate it when you load frozen chicken patties in the air fryer, and they have so much breading that falls off that your air fryer needs a deep clean?

Well with Tyson chicken patties no such problem though giving them just a 4/10 for not been as crispy as I would have liked.

  • Rating: 4/10
  • Temp: 180c/360F
  • Time: 8 minutes
  • Tip: Because of the way that the chicken patties are breaded, don’t expect a big crisp to them like you would if they are deep fried as the breading is not the same. If you would like more of a crisp increase the temperature to 200c/400f for the last 2 minutes.

#5 Tyson Popcorn Chicken

My favourite food from KFC can now be bought from Tyson frozen foods and loaded into your air fryer. Not quite as good as some of the other Tyson frozen foods in the air fryer, but still worth trying.

  • Rating: 5/10
  • Temp: 170c/340F
  • Time: 8 minutes
  • Tip: There is often leftover crumbs in the bag of popcorn chicken. Make sure you discard the crumbs before air frying otherwise you end up with a very dirty air fryer.

One of the best foods you can cook in the air fryer.

  • Rating: 6/10

    1. Hi Brenda,

      Yes go with the same timings but use a thermometer to check the temp inside after the cooking has finished. It has to be above 70c/140f to be cooked through and ready to eat 🙂

  1. Thanks for this awesome guide. Just getting into the air fryer and loving all my favourite Tyson foods in the air fryer.
