Air Fryer Fried Pickles: A delicious and easy recipe for crispy dill pickle chips cooked to perfection in the air fryer.

Ingredients:

  1. Dill pickles: They add a nice tangy flavor to this dish. You can use any type of pickle you like. I recommend using bread and butter pickles, sweet pickles, or even kosher dill pickles. You can also make your own dill pickle chips and use them for this recipe!
  2. Eggs: Eggs help the breadcrumbs bind to the sliced dill pickles. You can also use a vegan egg substitute or egg whites.
  3. Italian-style breadcrumbs: These seasoned breadcrumbs add crunch and flavor to the pickles. You can use any type of breadcrumbs you like. Plain breadcrumbs, panko breadcrumbs, or gluten-free breadcrumbs are all good options. If using plain breadcrumbs, I recommend seasoning them with spices like garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and a teaspoon of Cajun seasoning if you like spicy pickles. For an extra crispy texture, feel free to bread the pickles a second time in the egg mixture as well as in the breadcrumbs.
  4. Olive oil or cooking spray: This helps prevent the pickles from sticking to the basket and also helps to create a crispy coating. You can use any type of cooking spray you like. I sometimes use canola oil cooking spray, avocado oil, or vegetable oil cooking spray.
  5. Chopped fresh parsley: (optional) Chopped fresh parsley adds a pop of color and freshness to the fried pickles. It’s also optional.
Ingredients

Instructions:

Preheat your air fryer to 375°F for about 5 minutes. In a shallow bowl, whisk the 2 eggs until they are well beaten. Place a pickle chip into the egg mixture and coat both sides.

Pickle in egg mixture

Place the Italian-style breadcrumbs in a medium bowl and dip each of the dill pickle slices into the egg mixture.

Make sure they are fully coated. I like to roll the coated pickle in the breadcrumbs and then press each of them gently to coat evenly. Set the breaded slices on a large plate or baking sheet.

Lightly grease the air fryer basket with olive oil and then place the coated pickles inside in a single layer in the basket. Lightly brush or spray the tops of the pickles with olive oil cooking spray for added crispiness.

Air fry the pickles at 375°F for 10-12 minutes and flip them halfway through using tongs or a spatula. Feel free to adjust the cooking time as needed so that the fried pickles achieve your preferred golden brown, crispy texture.

After the air-fryer pickles achieve crispy perfection, remove the pickles from the air-fryer basket. Let them cool slightly, and serve with ketchup, hot sauce, ranch dressing, marinara sauce, garlic aioli, or your favorite dipping sauce.
