Let’s (Air) Fry Up Some Chips!
Before you begin, you will want to make sure that you have a mandolin slicer ready to go! This will give you those thin, potato chip slices that you need for this recipe!
- Slice: Using a mandolin slicer, slice the sweet potatoes into very thin slices.
- Soak: Soak the sweet potato slices in cold water for 20 minutes to remove the additional starch from the potatoes.
- Dry: Remove them from the water and pat dry with a paper towel.
- Sprinkle and toss: Toss the air fryer slices in the olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
- Cook: Lay the slices in an even layer in the air fryer. Cook at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until crisp.
- Remove and repeat: Remove from the air fryer and repeat until all of the sweet potato slices are used.
Air Fryer Tips
If you are new to using an air fryer, here are some tips for you! These will help your food turn out just perfectly. And really, once you get the hang of it, you will never go back!
- Preheat your air fyer: To get the most evenly cooked food, you should preheat your air fryer. Some air fryers have a specific preheat button. If yours doesn’t, then go ahead and set it at the cooking temperature for your recipe for 3 minutes before you put food in it!
- Don’t overlap: It’s best to cook in layers in the air fryer! If you do then your food will turn out better! Make sure that you don’t overcrowd the basket and that your food doesn’t overlap. Placing too much food in the basket doesn’t allow it to cook properly. It will end up soggy and not crispy!
- Don’t forget to flip: In *most* air fryer recipes, you are going to want to take the basket out and flip or shake the food halfway through cooking. You do this because this will help you get you the most even crisp on all of your food!
How to Store Leftovers
The best part about air fryer sweet potato chips is that (just like normal potato chips) is that you can enjoy them for a few weeks after! So go ahead and double or triple this recipe and cook up a bunch at once! You will be so happy that you did!
- Room temperature: Once you are done eating your sweet potato chips, you can save them for later! Store them in a plastic ziplock bag or airtight container. You can store them in your pantry out on your counter for up to 2 weeks!
