Actifry Chicken Nuggets Recipe

Actifry chicken nuggets are amazing! Lightly seasoned and coated in golden breadcrumbs they’re a meal the whole family will enjoy! 

I have an Actifry Genius which conveniently has a setting for breaded foods – so I use this. But, the recipe is also achievable in any model of Actifry or arifryer!

These nuggets are really versatile – they’re great on their own with heaps of ketchup and fries. Or, sometimes we have them in wraps with lettuce for a really nice lunch.

What a brilliant recipe. I’ve just cooked these for my 3 kids and husband and I. I haven’t seen home cooked food disappear so fast from our plates in a long time. Everyone ate them, no one complained, in fact everyone is asking for them again! Thank you so so much.
