Tips for Making Crispy Air Fryer Potato Chips
Nothing’s better than a couple tips and tricks to make a recipe the very best it can be. Here are a couple you need to jot down so that your chips are the most airy, crispy and crunchy they can possibly be!
- Slice them thinly: This is VERY important! Slicing your russet potato thinly and uniform will ensure that they cook evenly and are crispy all over!
- Let them sit overnight: OKAY, so I know that this step might seem annoying and you’re probably wondering if it’s really necessary to cook these up and then just let them sit. Let me tell you, it’ll be worth it because the chips will be light, airy, and perfectly crispy the next day!
Can I make Air Fryer Potato Chips with any kind of potato?
For this recipe, if you are wanting to make the chips with a different type of potato, it should work well! I have only tried it using russet potatoes but if you try another kind, feel free to let me know how it goes for you- you may need to adjust cooking time a little.
These crispy crunchy potato chips are easy to make and easy to store! Leave them out to crisp up on the counter overnight after you make them, and then transfer them to either an airtight container or a zip lock back. They will last this way for about a week!
Main dishes to serve with Chips
This is the BEST of all air fryer potato chips recipes! Now that we know how to make them, let’s think up some delicious mains to serve up with them! Chicken goes great with potatoes, so I recommend cooking some air fryer chicken nuggets or crispy breaded air fryer chicken breast and some yummy dipping sauce to go with these chips. If you want to keep the air fryer theme going strong, add a side of air fryer roasted asian broccoli and call it a meal!
Air Fryer Chips FAQ
Absolutely, they do! Air fryers don’t use high quantities of oil like deep fryers do, but that doesn’t mean your food will be soggy and flavorless! Air fryers use air to cook and crisp up the potatoes to make perfectly crunchy, better-for-you potato chips!
These air fryer chips take approximately 10-15 minutes to cook in the air fryer! After cooking, they will need to sit out to crisp up a bit at room temperature.
If your finished result is soft or soggy, it simply means that you didn’t remove enough water from the potato slices before cooking! Don’t skip this very important step.
Doin’ the healthy air fryer potato chip dance all day long.
I also shared the air fryer potato chips recipe on Food Fanatic, so be sure to peep it there!
- 1 Large Russet Potato, very thinly sliced, about 400 grams
- Grapeseed Oil Cooking Spray or any high-heat oil spray, not olive oil
- Sea salt
- Use a paper towel to press out as much of the moisture from the potatoes slices as possible.
- Spray the mesh basket of your air fryer with the oil spray and place the potatoes in a single layer inside. You will have to do this in batches.
- Spray the tops of the potatoes with the oil spray and sprinkle with salt. Turn your air fryer to 450°F and cook until the edges of the potatoes are golden brown and crisp, and the insides of the potatoes still have some lighter-colored, VERY slightly soft spots, about 10-15 minutes, depending on how thin your potatoes are.
- Remove the chips from the air fryer and let them crisp up on the counter overnight.
Tips & Notes:
- I used my mandolin to make this super easy, and got them just under 1/16 inch thick.
- It’s important to not cook the potatoes until they are totally golden brown and crispy, or they taste burned. Undercooking them JUST slightly and letting them dry overnight yields perfect results!
- You could also experience with tossing your potato slices in different flavorings before frying!
