We all love chips. These salty, crunchy bites of joy are made even healthier when you opt to cook frozen chips in an air fryer. Within minutes, you will get the same results from your air fryer as you would get from using a chip pan – minus most of the additional calories.
There’s no need to deep fry your frozen chips anymore, and best of all, they’ll have the same great crunch that you know and love. You will see, in minutes, just how quick and simple it is to take a plate of chips from frozen to perfection.
Here’s how to cook frozen chips in an air fryer:
Arrange a portion of the frozen chips in a single layer. Try to avoid stacking, it blocks the chips from cooking evenly.
Set your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and cook the chips for 10-15 minutes. The exact length of time will depend on the thickness of your chips.
Pause the timer halfway through, remove the fry basket and give it a good shake, this helps to promote an even temperature which ensures all the chips are cooked evenly. You can ignore this step if you have one of those Tefal air fryers with a rotating paddle.
Sprinkle a pinch of salt and enjoy your air fried chips.
Tips and considerations
For even more flavourful chips, try sprinkling some of your favourite spices on the chips before putting them in the air fryer, this will bake onto the chips and add an extra dimension of flavour.
While it is not necessary to grease the basket before you make these chips, it is recommended to mist them with some olive oil when they are finished.
As you can see, cooking frozen chips in an air fryer is extremely simple and convenient. Give it a go and let us know how you get on.
