Crispy Frozen Chicken Patties in Air Fryer

This is the Cosori version I love because it has a nice large square basket. Round is no good. There are many ways of how to cook frozen chicken out there but when it’s breaded like this you want the outside to be nice and crispy for sure.

The most important thing to remember with these, and anything else you want crispy really is to not overlap them.

In order to get the outsides super crunchy the hot air needs to be able to circulate around the food in order to work properly. Depending on their size, 2-4 will fit at a time.

  • The brand we used was Tyson but there are several others out there, plus probably a store brand.

The larger and/or thicker they are than this the air fry timing may vary a bit. Thinner and smaller will obviously take less cooking time to achieve perfect golden brown color.

How do you dress up a chicken burger?

There are TONS of things you can put on top. To start with you need a great bun. It is so worth it to spend a few cents more to get some from the bakery section like you see here.

Chicken Patty Recipe

I will actually say my favorite are pretzel buns if I can find them, here are a few other ideas if you’re making a burger bar:

  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Leaves of lettuce
  • Pickle slices
  • Onions

The ideas are endless as to what you can load it up with really, depends on your preference.

Before you begin you might have a few questions you need answered, let me help:

How long do I air fry frozen chicken patties?

The general timing is about 14 minutes give or take a few if you’re using a different brand or size than we did. I always suggest flipping halfway thru but if you don’t they’ll still be better than microwaving.

Can you cook frozen chicken patties in an air fryer?

Yes, we’re here to show you how to do that here. Similar to air fryer frozen chicken tenders they come out with tender meat inside but a crunchy outer layer you’ll love.

Our favorite way to make them.

How do you make Tyson chicken patties in air fryer?

That is the brand we used here and are most commonly found in stores. Just 14 minutes total will create the best texture on the outside with warm meat inside. Dress with mayo on buns and OH Wow!

Another winner of a dinner is to cook air fryer frozen chicken breasts. Those are great too. Straight out of the bag and perfectly moist in minutes, we use these often.

Chicken Burger Patties

I like a bunch of things on top of this and with air fryer homemade chicken nuggets so they aren’t dry. Ketchup isn’t all you can dress a chicken burger up with for sure. My favorites are:

Ranch salad dressing and bang bang sauce is great too.
