  • air fryer


  • 12 frozen dino nuggets (we use gluten-free)


  • Place 12 frozen Dino nuggets into the air fryer basket in a single layer
  • Cook at 400 degrees for 14 minutes or until cooked through and crispy, turn once throughout cooking if you'd like
  • Remove and enjoy!


There's no oil needed for this recipe! If you notice that your air fryer tends to stick to things, feel free to spray with olive oil before placing chicken down but may not be necessary. 
You can store leftover Dino nuggets in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. You should let your chicken tenders cool completely before storing. I recommend placing a paper towel in the bottom of your container to catch any excess moisture.
You can reheat these Dino nuggets air fryer style at 350 degrees for 3-5 minutes or until thoroughly hot. Reheating them in the air fryer will make them crispier than reheating in the microwave.
Top Tip: You can put your Dino nuggets back in the air fryer for a couple more minutes if you find they're not fully cooked.
Side Note: Nutrition facts will differ depending on what type of chicken nuggets you're using.
