Potato Crisps/ Chips (Airfryer & Vegan Recipe)

Airfryer potato chip recipe

My pantry is never ever without potatoes! When I see that I’m down to my last few potatoes, I usually will get another bag. This easy potato crisp recipe is the perfect way to use up those leftover potatoes (usually 1 or 2). All one needs a cutting board, a good knife and a bowl. I tend to not peel my potatoes as they contain a lot of goodness just under the skin. Wash the potatoes well and soak them in water for 10 minutes before rinsing and drying.

Potato Crisps/ Chips


Potatoes, sliced thinly – 1 to 2 medium
Salt, to taste
Red Chili Powder – 1/4 teaspoon, optional
Mixed Herb Powder – 1/2 teaspoon, optional
Non Stick Spray, a couple of sprays


Slice the potatoes thinly, approximately 1/4″ thick.
Wash all the potato slices in ice cold water and drain well.
Spread on all clean tea towel to mop up any extra water.
Spread in a thin layer on the base of the airfryer basket.
Spritz with some non stick spray and bake for 12 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius.
Shake the Airfryer basket around the 7 minute mark.
Bake for an extra 4 to 5 minutes for really crunchy and crisp chips!
Sprinkle with salt and desired flavourings (if using) as soon as they come out of the Airfryer.


The potato chips get crisper on standing for 5 to 10 minutes.
Use your choice of toppings from freshly ground black pepper or dried garlic flake powdered coarsely on top.

I am an enthusiastic plant based home cook and baker who delights in sharing my creations on unsuspecting non vegans, when they least expect it! When not recipe developing, testing or making, I'm found organising and/ or writing, the two other passions of my life ❤️


  1. I think Im going to have to go by a Airfryer..these look amazing

    1. Thank you 😊 Mine has certainly gotten a work out over the past 5 years and still gets used atleast 5 times a week if not more.

  2. I’ve been making a different version of this in my air fryer, but I don’t rinse the potatoes in cold water first. Can you please explain to me the reasoning behind that step? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Robin, I find pre-rinsing the potato slices in cold water gives me crisper chips and a better shelf life. Hope that helps 😊

  3. Yum, i love crisps cooked any way – visiting from healthy vegan fridays

  4. Airfryer owners UNITE!!! These sound lovely. I have so far only made french fries in my fryer, I am excited to try making my own chips. How on earth do you slice them so thinly, girl?
    Thanks so much for sharing at Healthy Vegan Fridays! I’m pinning & sharing (and bookmarking to try!).

    1. Thank you Kimmy 😊 The secret is a sharp knife that feels right in your hand. Using a slicer makes them too thin and they fly around and burn 😳

  5. I just got an air fryer for Christmas so I’ll totally have to try this recipe out! I need some healthy potato chips!
