Air fryer chicken nuggets with sweet and sour sauce are the perfect finger food for any occasion.

To Make Sweet and Sour Sauce:

1/2 cup white vinegar

– 1/4 cup white sugar

– 1/2 teaspoon salt

– 2 tablespoons ketchup

– 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

– 2 tablespoons soy sauce

– 1 tablespoon cornstarch

– 1/4 cup cold water

In a small bowl, mix together the vinegar, sugar, salt, ketchup, soy sauce, and cornstarch.

Mix in the water and stir until the mixture is smooth.

Do you need to preheat an air fryer?

This section is about whether you need to preheat an air fryer or not. The first question is do you need to preheat an air fryer? There are no set rules.

If the outside temperature is below 20Β°C, then it is recommended that you preheat the air fryer for 5 minutes before use. This will ensure that the outside of the food does not cool down too much before it enters the hot air. But if your kitchen can maintain a temperature of at least 20Β°C, then this step should be ignored.

When using your air fryer for cooking, make sure to heat up your oil before putting it in the fryer because otherwise there is a risk that food will be burnt on contact with cold oil and this could lead to unpleasant odors.

What is a good substitute for the cornstarch in the recipe?

The question of whether cornstarch is a good substitute for the other ingredients in the recipe has been raised. It also needs to be considered that some of the ingredients in this recipe are not available in many countries.

Many people will say that there is no substitute for cornstarch, while others will say that you can use flour or potato starch.

Grease the air fryer basket with a nonstick cooking spray.

Remove fried chicken nuggets from the fryer and transfer them to a serving plate. Serve with sweet and sour sauce. Enjoy!
