Making your chicken in the air fryer is not a difficult process either. Let’s look at how to make them in the details below.

How To Make Frozen Chicken Fries In The Air Fryer

To make frozen chicken fries in the air fryer, remove your package directly from the freezer, and open the package. 

Next, take a high smoke point oil and spray the bottom of your air fryer basket. 

Pour your chicken into the bottom of your air fryer basket so that they are in a single layer. 

Close your air fryer, and air fry at 400°F for approximately six minutes. When your time is up, remove your air fryer basket and shake them up to rearrange the chicken so that they cook evenly. 

Close your fryer once more, and continue cooking for approximately 2 to 5 more minutes or until your chicken fries are golden brown.

Please note that the exact amount of time it takes to air fry your chicken may vary depending on your air fryer. Set your timer for less than you think you’ll need, and check on your chicken fries often. 

When your chicken is done cooking, remove them from your air fryer and add them to a serving platter. Serve alongside any desired dipping sauces, and enjoy! 

Cooking Tips For Making Chicken Fries:

Internal Temperature. Depending on what kind of frozen chicken fries you are using, it is important to monitor the internal temperature of your chicken. Especially if you are using raw chicken, be sure that the internal temperature of your chicken reaches at least 165°F. 

If you are using pre-cooked chicken, then you do not have to reach this internal temperature, however, it is always a good rule of thumb to aim for 165°F in the center. 

Oil. The oil that you use to spray the bottom of your air fryer basket will help your chicken not stick to your basket. It is always a good idea to use an oil that has a high smoke point, meaning that it has to reach a very high temperature before your oil smokes or catches on fire. Oils such as canola or avocado oil are good options.
