Crispy, crunchy, and addictive, air fryer potato chips have 60 percent less fat than their store-bought counterparts. Yes, making potato chips in your air fryer requires a little bit of effort—but the result is a salty snack that’s actually pretty healthy. Does it get much better than that?
Mastering air fryer potato chips takes practice—and you’ll want to check on them about halfway through cooking, then more frequently towards the end of their cooking cycle. Use tongs to carefully separate any chips that have stuck to each other to ensure they cook evenly, and remove any chips that are fully crisped.
Make a batch of these chips for your next party, and serve them with our creamy-tangy Miso-Ranch Dip. Ready to jump on the air fryer bandwagon? Check out these 35 healthy air fryer recipes for delicious ideas from chicken wings to corn dog bites.
How to Make It
In a large bowl of cold water, soak potato slices for 20 minutes. Drain potatoes; pat dry with paper towels.
Wipe bowl dry; then add oil, salt, and pepper. Add potatoes; toss gently to coat.
Lightly coat air fryer basket with cooking spray. Place half of the potato slices in the basket, and cook in two batches at 375°F until cooked through and crispy, about 25 to 30 minutes.
Using a pair of tongs, carefully remove chips from air fryer to plate. Sprinkle over rosemary; serve immediately or store in an airtight plastic container.
