How to cook Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips in an air fryer

Tyson Crispy Chicken Strips


This is one of the few products we’ve seen that has air fryer instructions right on the bag! This is what Tyson recommend for their chicken strips:

  1. Preheat air fryer to 360F
  2. Cook for 11-12 minutes at 360F

We wondered if we would improve on that, either making for crisper chicken or a faster cooking time. We think we managed to improve slightly on both with the following approach. This resulted in noticeably crisper chicken than the packaging directions provided:

  1. Preheat air fryer to 400F
  2. Cook for ten minutes at 400F

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

The air fryer is definitely our preferred way to cook these chicken strips which end up with a fabulous crunch out of the fryer.

We recommend investing in a kitchen thermometer like the Habor Meat Thermometer to ensure your food is thoroughly cooked. It's quick, under twenty bucks and it's waterproof - and hey - we get a small referral fee for any purchases.
