How to Make Air Fried Pickles
These are simple to make and require nothing special but a little time.

- beat the eggs in another bowl
- and in the third bowl add your seasoned breadcrumbs
- dip a pickle chip in the flour, then in the eggs, then in the bread crumbs, and set on the prepared baking sheet
- repeat with enough pickle chips to fill the basket or tray of the air fryer
- spritz with cooking oil
- air fry on 380° for 5-7 minutes or until crispy and golden brown
- while those pickle chips fry dip the remaining chips and place them on the baking sheet
- when the first batch of pickles are fried remove them from the basket and place on a platter
- air fry the remaining pickles in batches as directed
- serve with your favorite dip or dressing
What to Dip Your Fried Pickles in
You CAN use anything you like for dipping. We prefer a good homemade ranch dressing. But lately, I’ve been making these two ranch dressings variations quite frequently. And they pair perfectly with fried pickles.
