How to Make Air Fryer Potato Chips
What You’ll Need
Making air fryer potato chips at home is surprisingly easy, and you don’t need much in the way of equipment. All you need is an air fryer, potatoes, and a few other simple ingredients.
Here’s what you’ll need to make air fryer potato chips:
- Oil (optional)
- Air fryer
Preparing the Potatoes
The first step is to prepare the potatoes. Start by washing them, then slice them thinly. If you have a mandoline slicer, use it to get the thinnest, most even chips. If you don’t have a mandoline, you can use a knife to slice the potatoes. Just be sure to slice them as thinly as possible.
Once you’ve sliced the potatoes, you’ll need to soak them in cold water for at least 30 minutes. This will help to get rid of any excess starch, which can make the chips soggy.
Cooking the Chips
Once the potatoes have been soaked, it’s time to cook them. Preheat the air fryer to 350°F. Then, drain the potatoes and pat them dry with a paper towel. Place the chips in the air fryer basket and spray them lightly with oil, if desired.
Cook the chips for 10-15 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and crispy. Be sure to check them frequently, as they can burn quickly. When they’re done, remove them from the air fryer and sprinkle them with salt.
Enjoying Your Air Fryer Potato Chips
Once your chips are cooked, it’s time to enjoy them! Serve them with your favorite dip or topping, or just eat them plain. Air fryer potato chips are the perfect snack for any occasion. Enjoy!
