When you have a short window of time and kids need to be served, freezer-to-table Air Fryer Dino Nuggets come to the rescue.
In only 15 minutes, you can put hot, crispy nuggets on the table by making them in the air fryer and serving them with fresh veggies.
Healthy and delectable! A perfect combination. Even your kids can’t say no to.
How Long Does Frozen Dino Nuggets Take to Get Ready in The Air Fryer?
The cooking time is between 10 – 20 minutes.
The time varies depending on the air fryer’s power and the size of the nuggets,
On this recipe we cook them at 400°F (204°C) and 300°F (150°C).
Why Use Air Fryer to Cook Frozen Nuggets?
Easier to Make:
What could be easier than tossing them straight from the bag into the air fryer? A filling snack is well on its way once you press the “start” button.
Kids hate soggy nuggets more than they hate broccoli. When you use the air fryer to create snacks or even dinner for them, you won’t have to worry about soggy chicken nuggets. They will come out delightfully crisp without being excessively so.
Easy Clean up:
To make clean-up easy, you can use the Air Fryer Parchment Paper Liners. I’ve also tried the Air Fryer Reusable Liners and have been using them since then.
What to Serve with Air Fried Nuggets?
The Dino Nuggets will go best with various dipping sauces, including fry sauce, Chick Fil A sauce, ketchup, ranch, and even BBQ sauce. Serve them in small ramekins to make the meal more enjoyable to consume.
We serve a large platter of cut-up vegetables alongside a batch of sour cream ranch dip, in addition to the sauces.
How to Store Leftover Nuggets?
Cooked dinosaur nuggets taste best when they’re still hot from the air fryer. However, if you have any leftovers, put them in the fridge in a sealed container.
