Air-Fryer Potato Chips
There are just four ingredients needed to make these crispy air fryer potato chips, and one of them is optional. You may now always have homemade chips because to the air fryer!
These potato chips from the air fryer are the ideal snack. They resemble your favourite store-bought chips but are crispier and crunchier and don’t have as much fat. To make them, you only need four ingredients: potatoes, cooking spray, salt, and optionally, fresh parsley for a pop of colour. The fact that these chips can be made quickly is their biggest feature. After around 15 minutes, the pre-soaked potato slices will crisp up to a wonderful golden-brown colour.
How to Use the Air Fryer to Make Potato Chips:
- Prepare the potatoes by thinly slicing them. Purchasing a handheld mandoline slicer is advised by our test kitchen. It’s the ideal tool for creating extremely thin slices that are consistently thick, guaranteeing that every chip will cook to perfection. aTo protect your fingertips during slicing, our Test Kitchen advises using a glove that can withstand cuts.
- Soak the potatoes in water after that. This brings out the natural starches in the potatoes, giving them a wonderful crunch when they cook. Additionally, it aids in keeping the potatoes in the air fryer basket from clinging to one another.
- Place the potato slices into the air fryer towards the end. The cook process is initiated immediately on the potato slices by blasting them with high heat from a preheated air fryer.
Air-Fryer Potato Chip Ingredients:
- Potatoes: The best varieties of potatoes to air fry are russet and Idaho. They crisp up perfectly because of their high starch content. However, we also love Yukon Gold potatoes for air-frying and making potato chips. They crisp up just as beautifully and taste creamy.
- Cooking spray with an olive oil flavour: While traditional potato chips are deep-fried in oil, we use cooking spray in this recipe to cut down on the amount of grease. The potato slices are slightly coated with the spray, which aids in their crisping without burning.
- Sea salt: Before cooking, sprinkle the potatoes with salt to give them a deliciously salty flavour. The best part about potato chips, outside their delicious crunch, has to be the salt, right?
- Fresh parsley: Although it’s not necessary, a small pinch of finely chopped parsley gives the chips a crisp appearance.
step 1:Preparation the Potatoes:
Toasted the air fryer to 360°F. With a vegetable peeler or mandolin, thinly slice the potatoes. Move them into a big basin. Cover with enough cold water. Let it soak for fifteen minutes. Empty. Toss in some more ice water, and soak for fifteen more minutes.
Step 2: Let the chips dry.
Remove the potatoes from the drain. After putting them on towels, pat dry.
Step 3: Let the potato chips air-fry.
After giving the potatoes a quick spray of cooking spray, season them with salt. Cook the potatoes in the air fryer basket in batches, in a single layer on a greased tray. Cook for 15 to 17 minutes, stirring and flipping the potato slices every 5 to 7 minutes, or until they are crisp and golden brown.
After taking the potatoes out of the air fryer, do the same with the other potatoes. Garnish the chips with finely chopped fresh parsley, if preferred.
How to Keep Potato Chips from an Air Fryer:
The chips can be kept for up to a week at room temperature in an airtight container or a resealable plastic bag. Remaining air-fried chips can be stored in a freezer-safe container for a maximum of three months. Before serving, let the chips thaw on the counter.
To fully reheat the chips, place them in the air fryer for a few minutes if they start to lose their crispy texture.
Tips for Air-Fryer Potato Chips:
Why are my chips from the air fryer not crispy and soggy?
Return your air fryer chips to cook for a little while longer if they are getting too soft. Cooking periods for air fryers can differ due to differences in internal temperatures among different brands. Your chips might need to cook for a little while longer than recommended. Check the potatoes for doneness at the earliest recommended time and return a bit later.
