Most frozen chicken fries brands I’ve seen are fully cooked but need to be reheated. However you should check the packaging of the chicken fries you buy.
If fully cooked is written on it then it’s fully cooked ready to be reheated. If raw is written on it then it’s not fully cooked and need to be cooked till it’s fully cooked with an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C)
Yes you can, here’s a quick way to do it. You will need 2 chicken breasts ½ cup mayo and 1 cup shake and bake seasoned breading mix.
1. Freeze the chicken slightly to make it easy to cut.
2. Cut the chicken into the shape of French fries, season with salt and pepper.
3. Toss chicken in Mayo then coat with the breading.
4. Let coated rest on a cooling rack for five minutes then transfer to an air fryer basket. Keep the chicken straight to maintain its shape.
5. Spay oil all over the chicken fries and air fry at 380°F for 12 to 15 mins add more time if the internal temperature hasn’t reached 165°F
