Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Nuggets

Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Nuggets

Football season is upon us and we’re so excited to start making all of the watch party snacks! We’ve made some really delicious ones over the years, but have been trying to find more ways to back away from the deep fryer and incorporate our air fryer.

We try to use the air fryer as often as possible – especially because of the easy clean up!

One of our favorite things to eat during the games are boneless buffalo wings. Of course, with that comes a deep fried breading that’s often loaded with fats. This alternative option to boneless wings is air fried, and the flour can even be replaced with almond or coconut flour. We’ve tried it both ways and it came out great!

We used Al Fresco’s ground chicken and it came out great. If you have a meat grinder, you can make your own ground chicken as well – just be sure to season it.

Let’s get started!
