1 package of Tyson fun nuggets – we haven’t tried different brands in the air fryer, cooking times may vary.
Air fryer – any will do, we are using the instant pot vortex today, but we also love the power xl air fryer option as well.
Begin by opening the bag of Tyson chicken nuggets and placing them one at a time, in a single layer, in the bottom of the air fryer basket. Return the basket back to the air fryer and set on air fry, at 325 degrees, for 6 minutes.
For best results, stopping halfway through, at 3 minutes to turn the tyson dino nuggets over, to ensure that you get crispy chicken nuggets every time. While your nuggets are cooking this is a great time to gather any sauces or side dishes you are serving on the side.

A few of the best dipping sauces to serve with chicken nuggets are ketchup, bbq sauce, and organic honey. One more favorite dipping sauce is also honey mustard, a classic sauce that works well with these air fryer dino nuggets.
A favorite side dish we love with crispy nuggets is mixed vegetables. It offers a great veggie variety and is also colorful on your child’s plate and you can be sure you are serving a complete meal instead of just fast food.
While french fries and curly fries are always a go to with these yummy dino buddies, sweet potato fries are a healthier option and they also are a favorite way to cook up a quick meal on busy night.
