Get fast food-worthy nuggets in your kitchen.
Hitting the drive-thru for some crispy, zesty chicken nuggets is one of the best treats. But what if you just want them at home? You may think frozen chicken nuggets just won't cut it, but you can get fast food-worthy nuggets right in your own kitchen. Here's the one tool you need for DIY drive-thru chicken nuggets.
USE AN AIR FRYER
Frozen nuggets can sometimes get soggy after coming out of the freezer. And the coating just may not resemble that indulgent fast food-fried texture we love when it's cooked in the oven. Solution? The air fryer.
HOW AN AIR FRYER WORKS
Air fryers make food extra crispy by circulating hot air. A fan moves the heat evenly around the food, which makes for a faster cook than other methods. It doesn't require any extra oil, so the nuggets can cook without succumbing to moisture. Plus, it keeps the calories and fat in check! Air fryers can cut calories up to 80% versus deep frying.
