It’s 2023 and I’m sure everyone has an air fryer by now right? I use the Ninja Foodi Dual Zone 7.6L Air Fryer AF3 and I love it! It’s so versatile and does everything I need it to do, in fact, I probably use my oven once a week now instead of daily. That’s why I love these air fryer frozen chips, it takes less time than the oven and is super tasty!

These are frozen chips in air fryer mode. If you want something a little more you could make homemade chips in the air fryer from scratch. You can use my very nice and very popular Home Made Air Fryer Chips Recipe and don’t forget to tell me what you think.

These Air fryer frozen chips are perfect for me, if you work late as I do, it’s great to just throw some chips in the air fryer and have them ready in half the time an oven would take. If you think chips in the air fryer is cheating, you’ve obviously never tried it!

Air Fryer Frozen Chips Recipe

I mean can this even be called a recipe? The ingredients are simple, frozen chips. The one thing I like about good old fashioned potato chips in air fryer form is that it’s a lot cheaper and a lot less time consuming. You might pay £1 for a bag of chips, whereas with potatoes and the price increases you’re looking at say £1.50. On top of that, you have to peel, chop and prep the chips before you can even cook them and we don’t always have time for that!

I mean it does depends on what chips you go for at the end of the day. We get skin on fries from Aldi, they’re cheap and taste a bit like KFC chips. I mean who wouldn’t want to make air fryer KFC chips at home? That’s one heck of an air fryer fakeaway.

I’m sure you could use any type of frozen chips for the chips in air fryer recipe, we all have a favourite at the end of the day. You could even turn these into loaded fries, if you use frozen chips you can just add cheese, bacon and anything else. Take a look at my Air Fryer Loaded Fries Recipe for inspiration!
