SPRINGDALE, ARK. — Tyson Foods, Inc. is tapping into a trending at-home cooking method with the introduction of air-fried chicken strips, fillets and nuggets.
Made with chicken breast and rib meat, the products are cooked using circulated hot air with a touch of oil to achieve a fried-like product and texture. The cooking method results in chicken that contains 75% less fat than traditional breaded, fried and boneless chicken, according to Tyson Foods.
“The first-of-its-kind, fully cooked Tyson air-fried chicken was created with both taste and convenience in mind,” said Colleen Hall, director of marketing for the Tyson brand. “We air-fry it for you, so just heat it in the oven for an easy dinner or snack the whole family can enjoy.”
