How to air fry MorningStar Farms Chick’N Nuggets

MorningStar Farms Chick'N Nuggets


These meat free chicken nugget stand-ins from MorningStar are a fine choice for the air fryer. Below I’ve included some basics to simply cook the nuggets up, with an additional extra two or three steps for extra crisp nuggets.

  1. Preheat air fryer
  2. Spray each side of the nuggets with cooking spray
  3. Cook at 350F for 8 minutes, shake half way through

This will cook the nuggets through, but if you want extra crispy nuggets:

  1. Increase temperature to 400F
  2. Cook for a further 3-4 minutes

Bonus tip: coat the nuggets in a little buffalo sauce before you cooking for the extra 3-4 minutes for a fun buffalo nugget twist!

This recipe is based of using the COSORI Air Fryer (5.8QT model, affiliate link).
