Tips for the best AirFryer Chips
Cooking with fresh cut potatoes or wedges
Use a good firm potato brand, poorer types will tend to mush up.
When you’ve cut the potatoes into your preferred size and shape chips, soak them for 30 minutes in a bowl of cold or iced water. Then dry thoroughly on paper towels before loading into the Philips Airfryer. Then add one to two ( depends on taste and quantity ) teaspoons of olive oil. It really does pay to buy the very olive oil you can, for the best results.
Shake the basket every 6 minutes, they are usually done in 12 to 15 minutes
Using Prepacked Frozen Chips
Use from frozen, no need to thaw out.
These usually come pre prepared in oil, so no need to add any more oil. Again experience is everything, experiment with different brands and cooking times, I’ve often been surprised at how some of the cheaper brands actually give good results, especially if you prefer chips that are well done. As above shake the basket every few minutes to avoid them sticking together. The airfryer makes a terrific job of cooking evenly, it is very rare to get burnt ones, unlike oven baking them where you have to be soooooooo careful and very attentive.
For a little variation, try adding all or some of these ingredients to your chips
- 1 Tablespoon of Grated parmesan cheese
- 1/4 Teaspoon of sea salt
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Garlic Powder
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Paprika
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Black Pepper ( I usually add a little more black pepper)
If you want to go for it, place all the ingredients in a plastic bag , add the fresh cut and dry chips and shake like mad to coat them all in the mix
Now load up the Airfryer and cook
