What are the benefits of using an air fryer?

Air fryers are a healthier alternative to deep-frying. They cook food by circulating hot air around it.

Air fryers are a healthier alternative to deep frying because they cook food by circulating hot air around it. The hot air circulates in the same way as an oven and cooks the food from all sides, giving a crispy crust without the fat that is usually associated with deep frying.

Why did you use cornflakes to coat the chicken nuggets?

The cornflakes on the chicken nuggets served as a textural component that was both crunchy and crispy. Adding them to the coating helped to make the nuggets crunchier and more flavorful.

The reason why we used cornflakes on the chicken nuggets is that they were a textural component that was both crunchy and crispy. Adding them to the coating helped to make the nuggets crunchier and more flavorful.

Are air fryer chicken nuggets healthier or just as unhealthy as regular fried chicken nuggets?

Air fryer chicken nuggets are a healthier alternative to their fried counterparts. Air frying is a process that uses hot air instead of oil to cook food. The result is a crispy, juicy and flavorful chicken nugget that has less fat than the fried version.

The air fryer chicken nuggets have less fat than the regular ones because they are cooked in hot air instead of oil. The whole process is done at a lower temperature which means it takes more time for the inside of the meat to cook. This also means that it has less chance of drying out or burning as well as having more flavor because it absorbs all the spices and seasonings better.
