1. Place the AirFry Basket on the Oven/AirFry Pan, and coat
with nonstick spray. Reserve.
2. Put the flour, eggs, and panko in individual bowls large enough
for dipping the chicken. Add a pinch each of the salt and pepper
to the panko; stir to combine.
3. 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 the egg, and then coating evenly with
the panko. Spray with olive oil. Arrange the chicken nuggets in the
prepared basket in one layer.
4. Place in the Cuisinart® 3-in-1 Microwave AirFryer Plus in the upper
rack position. Select Oven/AirFry, and set the temperature to 400°F
and time for 15 minutes; press Start. Pause to flip chicken nuggets
halfway through. Chicken nuggets are done when cooked through
and golden brown on both sides. Serve immediately.
