  • 1 lb. frozen popcorn chicken or 500 gm.


  • Preheat air fryer at 200C or 390F for 5 minutes. Take frozen popcorn chicken from the packet right into the preheated air fryer basket.
  • Air fry for about 12-14 minutes at 200C or 390F till crispy and done. Shake the basket about 3 times during this air frying time.
  • If you are doing this quantity in two batches then each batch should take about 9-10 minutes at 200C or 390F.
  • Serve hot with the dip of your choice.



1. These are best consumed hot off the air fryer.
2. There is no need to spray or add extra oil as the frozen chicken already has oil in the breading.
3. Air fry for a couple of minutes more if your chicken looks a bit lighter or underdone.
4. In case you want to store them, remember not to freeze. You can keep them in an air tight container in the fridge upto 2 days. Heat in air fryer for 2-3 minutes before serving.
