Rosemary Chips – Air Fried, Crisp on the Outside, Fluffy in the Middle

Rosemary Chips

HealthyFry, Sides | 30th January 2017 | By

We tend to eat chips as an occasional treat from our local chippie. I’m not sure I’ve ever eaten them three times in one week before. But when you can air fry them with just a teaspoon or two of oil and they turn out to be as delicious as these rosemary chips, they are very hard to resist.

As you might have seen from my post last week, I’ve been trying out the new Optimum HealthyFry from Froothie. Well you can’t test a fryer without making chips – can you? That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. As well as three batches of rosemary chips, I’ve also made sweet potato fries and a chocolate cake. Yes really! A chocolate banana cashew cake to be exact.

Optimum HealthyFry Air Fryer Chips

You can read my Optimum HealthyFry air fryer review in my previous post, but here I’m giving you a very simple, but effective recipe for rosemary chips. You could make these in a conventional oven, but making them in this air fryer not only gives a delicious crispy result, but saves on both time and energy. Chips for one took 18 minutes including warm up time and chips for two took 21 minutes. I find heating a large oven just to make a few chips rather extravagant and a bit of a waste of electricity.

Many of the nutrients found in potatoes are held in their skins, so it’s rare for me to peel them. These rosemary chips are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside and the skins barely noticeable. I really like the combination of fresh rosemary and potato; luckily, rosemary is one of the few herbs I manage to grow in the garden. This along with a tiny amount of olive oil and some salt and pepper complete the ingredients. The possibilities for flavourings are endless; rosemary and garlic salt is pretty hot as is chilli salt.

Ingredients
  1. 1 large baking potato - well scrubbed
  2. sprig of rosemary - finely chopped
  3. 2 tsp olive oil
  4. pinch of sea salt flakes
  5. grinding of black pepper
Instructions
  1. Cut the chips into fairly chunky chip size pieces, keeping the thickness as even as possible.
  2. Heat the air fryer - I used the Optimum HealthyFry.
  3. Place in a bowl with the remaining ingredients and mix until the chips are thoroughly coated.
  4. Place the chips into the air fryer basket and set to 200℃ for 15 minutes.
  5. Turn the chips half way through the cooking time.
Notes
  1. Scale up the quantities as necessary.
  2. Thinner cut chips may need less cooking time.
  3. Use flavoured salts for added interest - garlic salt works well as does chilli salt.
  4. If the chips stick to the bottom, use a silicone spatula to try and turn them.
  5. No air-fryer? Bake in the oven instead. You may need a few more minutes.

      Chips are very hard to resist, but at least I can tell myself these ones are healthier than most. Who am I kidding?

    Ooooh yes please, I adore rosemary with roast potatoes so I’m imagining these are incredible!!!! I used to have an actifry but I rather wore it out, so am very tempted to try the new frothie air fryer as i’m sure the boys would love having chips on the menu on a regular basis!

      Oh, I bet they would Katie. You might have to treat them. And if you keep the peel on, they are really quite good for you 😉

      Haha Angie. They make very good chips and this one bakes a mean cake too, but there’s a lot of temptation there.

    Sounds very delicious. Rosemary and potatoes go well together. That reminds me to put back some rosemary in my kitchen.

      You want the rosemary in your garden Chris – if you can. Lovely to hear from you 🙂

    I love the idea of fresh chips only taking twenty minutes to make and using a tiny bit of oil too! Ad if you don’t have to heat the whole oven either, I’m there!

      Excellent chips and no need for the oven are the top selling points I reckon Lucy.

      Chips for breakfast sound highly decadent Jan, but somehow rather appealing.

    I love the sounds of an air dryer, I often struggle when oven baking chips as they often get stuck to my baking trays. I’m not sure my other half will allow me to have another gadget in the kitchen though

      I’m torn Dora. The Optimum HealthyFry is fab and can be used for a lot more than just wonderful chips. But it does take up precious counter space – dilemma!

    Gosh, these look perfect! I love rosemary and potatoes together anyway but as chips? Oh, yes please!

    I’ve never used an air fryer but I suspect that if I had one, I might be making chips with everything! Ha ha!

      i’ve been using my air fryer almost constantly since I first got it. It acts as a mini oven so is great for when you’ve only got small (ish) quantities to cook. I even made my 2nd cake in it this week.
