HOW TO COOK FROZEN CHICKEN IN THE AIR FRYER
Making frozen chicken in the air fryer works well for all kinds of chicken. Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips turn out so well, but so do Tyson Chicken Nuggets! (We’re also fans of air fryer frozen chicken nuggets.)
I like to use the Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips because you get crispy chicken with flavor whether you cook them in the oven or the air fryer. But when I make them in my air fryer, I actually feel like I might have just picked up some chicken from a local restaurant! It’s that good!
Cooking your Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips in the air fryer is really simple!
Start by preheating your air fryer to 390 degrees. (This process may vary depending on the air fryer you have, so follow the necessary steps.)
Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray.
Place the frozen chicken strips into the basket. The size of your air fryer will help determine the amount of chicken you can cook at once. You don’t want the chicken to be crowded. They each need space for the air to circulate.
Cook the Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips for 12-14 minutes, turning them over halfway through. I don’t always turn them completely, sometimes I just shake the basket a few times throughout the cooking time.
HOW LONG TO COOK CHICKEN TENDERS IN AIR FRYER
Cook time will depend on your specific air fryer model but I average about 12 minutes total for when I cook Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips.
For most frozen foods I cook in the air fryer, I set mine to 390 degrees. You’ll want to use a food thermometer to make sure your chicken is cooked thoroughly.
