If you're looking for winter air-fryer inspo, try this viral chicken nugget recipe from TikTok fitness expert @doosifit.

It is super simple: 225g chicken mince, mixed with 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, and 1/4 tsp paprika.

At left, a hand dips a crispy coated nugget in sauce, while others sit on a serving platter; at right three views of black air fryers.
TikTok and an air fryer offers crickle-crackle without the calories.

Divide the mixture into nugget-sized pieces with your hands, before crushing up 50g of nacho cheese chips.

Roll each nugget in the crushed chips, and they'll stick instantly, so there's no need for egg or another binder.

Pop them in the air fryer for 10 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius, turning halfway through. Enjoy!

The simple recipe has had 1.2 million views, with rave reviews.

"Just made these for dinner and they were 10/10," says one.

"I just made these and they are AMAZING," agrees another.

Idris Doosi, the fitness expert behind the account, suggests breadcrumbs, panko or cornflakes as alternative coatings.

Because no oil is used, it's a healthy alternative to regular nuggets.

Four nuggets give you a whopping 38g of protein, with just 6g of carbs and 10g of fat.
