Tyson offering Air Fried Chicken, 75% less fat

    Tyson is taking a giant step by offering air-fried chicken. They are boldly claiming that their new line of chicken has 75% less fat. This is welcome news for many with health concerns. Let’s hope this is a new wave of products from other companies that rely on frying foods.

    “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 the food at high speed, cooking the food to a crisp and requires less oil than the traditional frying method.” 

    Fun Fact: Popeyes Chicken is named after the character Popeye Doyle in the movie “The French Connection.”
