Tyson announced a new line of Air Fried Chicken featuring crispy, simply seasoned, golden breading and white chicken meat free of any antibiotics. According to the producing company, the new products contain 75% less fat.
The products are now available throughout the U.S. and come in three different frozen options:
- Chicken Breast Strips
- Chicken Breast Fillets
- Chicken Nuggets
“The fully-cooked Tyson Air Fried Chicken was created with both taste and convenience in mind. We air fry it for you so just heat it in the oven for an easy dinner or snack the whole family can enjoy,” said Colleen Hall, director of marketing for Tyson Brand.
At-home air frying is trending, with nearly 10 million air fryers sold in the U.S. between May 2017 and March 2019, according to market research firm NPD Group. Air frying works by circulating hot air around food at high speed, cooking the food to a crisp and requires less oil than the traditional frying method.
