If you want to treat your kids to crispy chicken nuggets that taste better than the processed food version then you’ve come to the right place!

I absolutely adore chicken nuggets. I mean I really LOVE chicken nuggets. But that is only if they are good quality.

This means that the chicken must be bread and not just the rubbish bits leftover from a chicken.

It must then have a really delicious coating that will give you a delicious bite sized crunch as you tuck into it.

I also want ones that will not make me fat or make me feel like I had to go for a jog afterwards to work it off.

Now finding delicious chicken nuggets that tick all those boxes and become the ideal comfort food is harder said than done.

  • Preheat your air fryer to 180c.
  • Place your chicken breast into a blender or food processor until it resembles chicken mince. Place it into a mixing bowl ready for making the chicken nuggets.
  • Place your egg in one bowl.
  • Blend your oats in a blender or food processor until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • In the chicken bowl add salt, pepper, parsley and thyme and mix well.
  • Grab a chicken nugget sized piece of the chicken mixture and using your hands turn into your desired shape.
  • Place it first in the blended oats, then in the egg and then back in the oats.
  • Put to one side. Do this for all your chicken nuggets and then place them all on a baking sheet in your air fryer.
  • Cook at 180c for 10 minutes.
  • Serve with tomato ketchup and mustard.


You can also use turkey mince for this for when you have some spare, but I prefer it with the mince from chicken rather than turkey.
