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

These faux-chicken nuggets are easy and mess free in the air fryer – not to mention fun and flavorful! The finish from the air fryer is a thunderously crust exterior with a soft interior. Use a fat free cooking spray like PAM as well, and they’re infinitely healthier than the regular pan frying method.

We love to enjoy these nuggets over an Asian inspired salad!
