Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets

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 
  • 4 tbsp olive oil


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

Step 6: Coat the remaining nuggets with the rest of the oil and repeat as above

Serve with tomato ketchup (or your favourite condiment) and a side salad
