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

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.

Also, as our daughter has lots of allergies it allows us to be prepared and ensure that we can all eat together and avoid relying on convenience foods. Which are often more expensive. This week I’m doing something a little different, and sharing my meal plan for next week with you.
