I was amazed at how fast these cooked in the air fryer! The flavor and texture of these healthy air fryer chicken nuggets are superb, and you won’t miss the grease of frying or the “bread” of breading. I am a self-professed ketchup lover, and I didn’t even need ketchup for these.

If you’re looking for an air fryer, we’ve tried a couple of air fryers and like this Cuisinart one the best.

We made these air fryer chicken nuggets in our favorite air fryer. It’s different than the deep basket style that you often see. So, it lets you lay things out easier without pieces touching. It also works as a toaster oven and a convection oven. So, it may actually replace other appliances for you. You can get this model on Amazon here.

Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets - Sides and Condiments

These would go great with some ketchup (they make some sweetened with honey now), some ranch (make your own here), or some bbq sauce (make your own low carb version here). If you’re trying to stay in keto, just make sure you watch the condiments you use.

For an easy “1-2-3 Eat!” meal, just pair these with a healthy veggie and a healthy starch. For keto, just use two veggies.
