These air fryer chicken nuggets are very easy to make, kid-friendly, and the buffalo sauce adds just enough heat to bring an awesome flavor! WW friendly too! 

If you are new to the air fryer world, this is one of the easiest recipes you can make as a newbie! You will want to add these to your weekly meal plans!

I will go ahead and tell you that it is BEST that if you spritz some oil on these tenders before frying, then check halfway to see if they need anymore. The reason is that this will make it crispier and more of a traditional fried dish, without it being saturated in oil.

Really to make this an ultimate kid-friendly, try your luck with air fryer french fries!

If you want to serve this on game day or as an easy appetizer, then you may want to make some pretzels and air fryer donuts too!

Oh yeah if you are on Weight Watchers and like low point dipping sauces, be sure to try the selection for G Hughes!
