How To Make Air Fryer Pita Chips

To make these air fryer pita chips, start by brushing the pitas with olive oil. Then, cut them into triangles using clean scissors or a kitchen knife.

Sprinkle salt over the triangles and layer the pitas in the air fryer basket.

Cook the pita chips at 350F for 8 minutes in the air fryer. Shake the basket halfway through the cooking time to evenly cook the chips.

Cooking Tips:

  • Don’t overcrowd the pitas or they won’t get evenly crispy in the air fryer basket.
  • You can add other seasonings as well, such as parmesan, Italian seasoning, pepper, or garlic powder.
  • If you don’t have olive oil, you can substitute it with another cooking oil, such as sunflower or grapeseed oil.

  • Wash your sweet potato and then cut off the ends. I leave mine unpeeled, but you can peel your sweet potato if you prefer. Next, if your sweet potato is large you will need to cut it in half longways, but if using a smaller potato there is no need. Now, use a knife to slice the sweet potato as thin as possible.
  • Add the thinly sliced raw sweet potato chips to a large bowl. Then drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Now, toss together until the sliced sweet potato is evenly coated with the oil and seasonings.
  • Put the coated sweet potato chips into the air fryer basket. Then put the basket into the air fryer and cook the chips at 350°F for 15 minutes. After halfway through the cooking time remove the air fryer basket and flip over the chips with a spatula to ensure the chips evenly cook. Then put the basket back into the air fryer and let the chips finish cooking.
  • When done, remove the chips from the air fryer and place on a plate to allow them to cool down for 5 to 10 minutes to get even crispier.
  • Once cool, transfer the chips to your dish of choice and enjoy!
