1 . Put the flour, eggs and panko into individual containers large enough for dipping the chicken. Add a pinch each of the salt and pepper to the panko; stir to combine.

2 . Sprinkle the chicken, evenly on both sides, with the remaining salt and pepper. Dredge each chicken piece in the flour and shake off the excess before dipping into egg, and then finally coating evenly with the panko breadcrumbs. Spray both sides with olive oil.

3 . Place the AirFryer Basket onto the Baking/Drip Pan and generously coat with the nonstick cooking spray. Put the prepared nuggets into the basket and AirFry in the upper position with temperature set to 400°F for 15 minutes, flipping halfway through, cooking until chicken is evenly browned on both sides.

4 . Serve immediately.
