For Christmas this year I got an Instant Pot Duo Crisp with air fryer (Amazon link). I have really been enjoying using this new appliance and can’t believe how much I have used the air fryer function. It is so easy to use and works incredibly well. Meat comes out crisp and so juicy inside.
Since we have a garage full of sweet potatoes from last summer’s crop I decided to make sweet potato chips in the air fryer. I used to make them this way, but frying in grease is such a messy situation.
To help these chips crisp up, I soak them in water first to remove some of the starch. I also slice them thinly. I usually use a knife, but you could use a mandolin or food processor. Soak the sliced sweet potatoes for an hour or even longer. You can soak them overnight or even a couple of days in the fridge until ready to use.
Towel dry your sweet potato slices then air fry for 15-17 minutes until they are perfectly crisp. I cook for 15 minutes, remove any crisp chips and add a couple more minutes as needed for others to finish. These are so easy and delicious, but should be eaten the day you make them. Leftovers tend to get soft. You will need to make in batches so that they are in a single layer in the air fryer. If you have an upper tray (mine does), you can add a second layer.
1-2 large sweet potatoes
Olive oil in a spritzer bottle (amazon link) or cooking spray
1. Thinly slice sweet potatoes.
2. Soak potatoes in water for an hour or more.
3. Towel dry potatoes.
4. Spray air fryer basket with olive oil or cooking spray.
5. Place a single layer of potatoes in air fryer, two layers if you have a top rack.
6. Spray olive oil on potatoes. Sprinkle with salt.
7. Air fry at 350 degrees F. for 15 minutes. Remove crisp potatoes and cook thicker potatoes for an additional 1-2 minutes until done.
8. Salt as needed, set aside and continue with rest of potatoes.
