SPRINGDALE, ARK. — Tyson is focusing on the air fryer trend with the company’s newest product: Air Fried Chicken Bites. The chicken bites have 75% less fat and 35% less calories than fast-food breaded chicken options, but offer the same great taste and crunch of traditionally fried chicken.
Americans today want better-for-you versions of comfort foods, and Tyson Brand is meeting this trend by launching chicken bites in Spicy and Parmesan flavors that have been prepared in an air fryer, giving them a burst of flavor in every crunchy bite. The white-meat bites are made with chicken raised with no antibiotics.
"We take pride in keeping a finger on the pulse of the latest trends and creating products that are sure to be a fan favorite. Fried chicken lovers – and let's face it, that's all of us – were delighted by the launch of our Air Fried products in 2019 so we're excited to give them more of what they want by extending our Air Fried line of products," said Lauren Talbert, Tyson senior brand manager. "Whether someone is tailgating, hosting a few friends, or snacking alone, Air Fried Chicken Bites are the perfect easy, crispy, juicy and better-for-you protein snack."
Tyson Air Fried Chicken Bites are available in 20 oz packages providing seven servings per bag and the following protein count per flavor: 13g for Spicy and 14g for Parmesan.
