How to make perfect chips in the airfryer – my airfryer chips recipe

This post may contain affiliate links.

My husband and I are always working on wasting less money these days. We have a big mission to buy a house in the next 18 months and want to put down a 50% deposit. This is no small amount as we live in the South East. We have been working to save money on takeaways and one of the ways we’ve been doing so is by eating less takeaways. I decided to make airfryer chips recently, to accompany a slow cooker kebab recipe that I’ll be writing about soon. We’ve had these a few times now and I’ve really perfected the recipe.

Airfryer chips – Method

Peel your potatoes. I use this potato chipper, by slicing the potatoes in half first they take just seconds to chip. SO convenient and one of my favourite kitchen gadgets these days.


I then rinse the chips with cold water, dry them on a clean tea towel and dust them with a little plain flour and salt & pepper. That is it. Sometimes I add herbs or a chopped chilli if I want to add a kick.

I cook my airfryer chips for 12 minutes at 160C then I turn it up for another 10 minutes to crisp them up. As you can see they look lovely and crispy and they have a nice soft fluffy centre still.

If you want to make the outside of your airfryer chips even crispier then use a few sprays of spray oil at the beginning, and when turning up the temperature midway through.
