Air Fryer Chicken Nuggets

Copycat Air Fryer Chick Fil A Nuggets are easy and healthy


  • 1 - 2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon of seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1/3 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 egg - beaten
  • 1 cup of milk
  • Spray Olive oil


  • First; Cut the chicken in bite-size pieces, sprinkle with the garlic salt, seasoned salt, and pepper.
  • Break the egg in a medium-size bowl, and beat the egg with a whisk until it's a lemon yellow color, and frothy.
  • Add milk to egg and stir well.
  • In a large Ziploc bag, add the flour and powdered sugar, and shake to mix.
  • Dip the chicken in the milk/egg mixture, and drop the chicken pieces into the bag of flour/powdered sugar.
  • When you have several pieces of chicken in the bag (probably 20 pieces), twist the top of the bag so the flour doesn't spill out, and gently shake the chicken pieces in the bag to coat.
  • Place the breaded chicken pieces in the basket of the air fryer and spray the pieces with the Spray Olive Oil until they're coated.
  • Set the Air Fryer temperature on 375, and set the time to 12 minutes.
  • Turn the chicken pieces halfway through baking, and spray the other side with the Spray Olive Oil.
  • When the pieces of chicken are done, remove from the air fryer to a serving plate, and serve immediately.
  • Enjoy!


You can add a little more garlic salt if you prefer, or a little more pepper, especially if you have 2 pounds of chicken. Serve the nuggets with french fries, or potato chips, and your favorite dipping sauces.
