Hubby of course was mortified, "Don't go ruining perfectly good shallow fried crispy chicken wings just because you have a new machine" he stated.
I replied "You know that you have to use a new machine every night for the first two weeks!"
Then I cooked beautifully crispy potato chips, one of his deep fried staple foods and he thought they were simply amazing. He said "you can actually taste the potato and not the oil".
So safe to say we are now Air Fryer Converts 😊
Plus it's nice to have a new 'toy' in the kitchen one which will not only cook healthy fast food but also it is always stimulating to learn how to use a new cooking item.
Air Fyer Potato Chips
4 Medium Potatoes
4 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Preheat your air fryer to 180 degrees C for 3 minutes
Peel your potatoes and cut them into fries.
# Mine were sliced 1.5cm high x 1cm wide by the length of the potato approx 6 - 8cm
In a bowl, toss the fries in the oil.
Place them in your Air Fryer on a 180C.
Cook for two minutes and then shake them.
Cook for a further 8 minutes and shake again.
Cook for a further 15 minutes.
For golden fries cook for another 5 minutes on 200C.
Season with salt and pepper then serve.
Sweet Potato Chips
2 large sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
Peel the sweet potatoes then slice them into chips.
Try and keep as regular as possible so there is a consistent cooking time.
Preheat your air fryer to 180 degrees C for 3 minutes.
Put the sweet potatoes in a bowl with the olive oil and toss until well mixed.
Tip the sweet potatoes into the heated air fryer. Cook for 20 minutes, a little longer if the chips are thick. Shake once in the middle of cooking.
Serve, with salt and pepper.
