No oil required. Chicken nuggets usually have plenty of oil locked in their coating so there's no need to oil or spray them before adding to the air fryer.

Cook from frozen. There's no need to defrost your chicken before cooking. Cook the nuggets directly out of the freezer.

Don't overcrowd. Don't fill your air fryer to the brim. For the best results add chicken nuggets to your aur fryer in a single layer with space between each. This increases air flow around the chicken and ensures even, quick cooking. The more you crowd your basket, the more your cook time will increase, and crispiness will decrease.
