Air Fryer Potato Chips
Air Fryer Potato Chips are sliced thin then tossed in olive oil, salt, and paprika before getting air-fried until they are perfectly crispy.
Servings 4 servings as a side dish
- 2 baking potatoes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt to taste
- Pepper to taste
- Smoked paprika to taste
Wash and scrub clean the potatoes. Using a mandolin thinly slice into ⅛" slices.
Place potato slices in a large bowl and cover with cold water. Let soak for 30 minutes.
Drain well and pat dry with a kitchen towel.
Preheat air fryer to 370 degrees F.
Toss the potatoes with olive oil and season to taste with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika.
Add potatoes to the air fryer and cook for 10 minutes. Toss and cook for an additional 15-17 minutes, stirring and tossing every few minutes.
Once the potatoes begin to crisp, remove the browned ones and continue cooking until all chips are crisp and nicely browned.
You can also cook them in batches. Do NOT oveercrowd the chips in the air fryer.
- Aside from cooking the chips evenly, shaking/stirring them up every few minutes lets you see which pieces are browning too fast. Make sure to take them out, or they can burn.
- You can certainly slice the spuds by hand if you’re confident with your knife skills, but we do recommend using a mandolin since it’s easier and gives you perfectly even pieces.
- This is very important— dry the raw chips before air-frying! Otherwise, they’ll become soggy in there instead of getting crispy.
