Not much, just a pack of your favorite brand of chicken fries. My favorite one is the Tyson Anytizer brand.
Simply preheat your air fryer to 400 F for 5 mins.
Once your air fryer has been preheated, take out the pack of frozen chicken fries and place them in one layer in your fryer’s basket.
Set the temperature to 380 F and the timer to 10 mins.
Don’t put the a lot of fries in single go, and avoid creating multiple layers and over crowding the basket. Even multiple layers can be cooked but for best results, place chicken fries in a single layer.

After 5 mins of cooking, take out your fryer basket and shake it well. And put it in the air fryer for the remaining 5 mins.

So I would prefer not to add any further oil and stay on the healthy side.
