Simmering in oil is so yesterday. Learn how you can make juicy and crispy chicken nuggets at home with the help of your trusty Morphy Richards air fryer.
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Makes: 4-6 servings
- 500g chicken breast
- 4 level tbsp plain flour, seasoned with salt and pepper
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 150g dried breadcrumbs

Step 1: Cut the chicken into bite sized chunks with scissors
Step 2: Dip the chunks, a few at a time, into the flour, then the beaten egg before coating in the breadcrumbs. Set aside on a plate.
Step 3: Place half the nuggets on a plate, drizzle over 2 tbsp of olive oil, turning them to coat. Refrigerate the second lot until needed.
*cook both batches simultaneously if you have a dual air fryer*
Step 4: Preheat at 190°C for 3 minutes
Step 5: Cook the first batch at 190°C for 15-20 minutes, turning over or shaking the basket halfway through cooking
