Marion’s Best Air-fryer Chicken Nuggets

Air fryer chicken nuggets are a scam… unless you know what I know, of course. It’s all in the seasoning, my friends! This family-friendly recipe makes a light, crispy and totally satisfying version so you can enjoy the nug life without the deep frying, plus there’s a knockout homemade barbecue sauce to dip them in.

Ingredients

600g (1 lb 5 oz) chicken thigh fillets, cut into nugget-sized pieces

Marion’s Kitchen Signature Fried Chicken Kit (or follow this fried chicken recipe if unavailable where you are)

vegetable oil spray

 

Tangy BBQ sauce:

1 cup tomato sauce

¼ cup white wine vinegar

2 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp tamarind paste

2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

¼ tsp hot sauce e.g. sriracha

 

Curry seasoning:

2 tbsp curry powder

1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes or chilli powder

1 tbsp sea salt

Steps
  • Step 1

    To make the tangy bbq sauce, place all of the ingredients into a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk to combine and bring to a gentle simmer until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

  • Step 2

    For the curry seasoning, mix the ingredients in a small bowl.

  • Step 3

    Open the packet of Marion’s Kitchen Signature Fried Chicken Kit, and empty the sachet of Marion’s Signature Flavour Paste into a large bowl. Add the chicken pieces and mix well to coat.

  • Step 4

    Prepare the batter by mixing a ¼ cup of the Marion’s Signature Coating Mix with ½ cup of water. Whisk to form a thin batter. Add the marinated chicken and mix until well combined.

  • Step 5

    Place the remainder of the Coating Mix into a shallow bowl or tray. Take each piece of chicken out of the batter and place into the dry coating mix. Pat the chicken with the mix to form a crumbly coating.

  • Step 6

    Spray the basket of an air-fryer with oil. Place the chicken nuggets into the basket, being sure not to overcrowd them. Cook at 180°C (350°F) or on high for 5 minutes. Turn the pieces over and spray again with oil, then cook for another 5 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer to a large bowl and repeat with the remaining chicken nuggets.

  • Step 7

    Sprinkle over the curry seasoning and toss to combine. Serve nuggets with the tangy BBQ sauce.
