How to Make Chips in an Air Fryer
What is an Air Fryer?
An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that cooks food by circulating super-heated air around it. It is similar to a deep fryer, but instead of using oil, the air fryer circulates hot air to cook the food. This allows you to make delicious and crispy chips without all the fat and calories of traditional deep-fried chips.
What You’ll Need
To make chips in an air fryer, you will need a few items. The most important is the air fryer itself. Other items include:
- Potatoes (2-3 per person)
- Vegetable oil (1-2 tablespoons)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preparing the Potatoes
Before you can cook the chips in the air fryer, you need to prepare the potatoes. Start by washing the potatoes and then cutting them into slices about 1/4 inch thick. You can cut them into strips if you prefer. Once the potatoes are cut, place them in a bowl and add the oil, salt, and pepper. Mix the ingredients until the potatoes are evenly coated.
Cooking the Chips
Once the potatoes are prepared, it’s time to cook them in the air fryer. Place the potatoes in the air fryer basket and set the temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cook the chips for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket every 5 minutes to ensure even cooking. Once the chips are crispy and golden brown, remove them from the air fryer and serve.
Your chips are now ready to be enjoyed. Air fried chips are a delicious and healthier alternative to traditional deep-fried chips. They are perfect for a snack or side dish and are sure to be a hit with your family and friends.
