I wish I’d jumped on board the Anytizers bandwagon much sooner. For the longest time I’d avoided this particular product line imagining it would be another ‘all hype and no substance’ affair. I can’t count the number of times I’ve been burned and let down by the latest greatest product…ok…shiniest packaging.
Instead, what I found were my hands down favorite chicken nuggets…who knew. While they’re serviceable out of the microwave I find they’re much improved out of the oven, or better yet, the air fryer.
The breading has a satisfying crunch when cooked with high heat, but can be prone to overcooking and turning overly tough – so do be careful. Flavor wise these are notably…chicken tasting! I know, I know, but how many frozen nuggets can you genuinely say tasted of actual meat. Not many. Speaking of which…
As you can see from the following interior close up, these are fairly removed from the mystery-sponge meat of many a nugget product. That’s not to say they’re not highly processed in their own right – but as frozen chicken products go – this is at least features immediately recognizable protein at its core:
Having a bag of these on hand as a sparing treat (it’s still a processed product loaded with sodium), lunch snack or dinner finishing item can be really handy.

Are Tyson Anytizers Popcorn Chicken any good?
Definitely! At the time of writing these are our favorite chicken nugget style product bar none. And we’ve tried a few. While microwavable as a quick snack they fare much better out of the oven or air fryer, and work wonders as a lunch or dinner item.
