Tyson Foods introduced its new Tyson Air Fried Chicken, featuring crispy, simply seasoned, golden breading and juicy all-white meat chicken with no antibiotics ever.

According to a press release from Tyson Foods, the products contain 75% less fat, offering consumers “all pleasure and no guilt.” This option for fried chicken lovers can satisfy cravings without the need for an air fryer.

Now available nationwide, Tyson Air Fried Chicken is available in three varieties: 

“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.” 


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 traditional frying method.
