INGREDIENTS YOU NEED FOR THE DILL PICKLE CHIPS
You will need the following ingredients listed below to make the crispy fried pickles (the exact measurements, nutritional information and full recipe are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post):
- Box of frozen fried pickle slices
- Nonstick cooking spray
- Serve with ranch dressing, sour cream, or your favorite dipping sauce.
SIMPLE STEPS ON HOW TO MAKE THE FRIED DILL PICKLES
- Preheat Your Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees F. This ensures that your frozen fried pickles achieve that perfect golden crispiness.
- Arrange Pickles in the Air Fryer Basket: Open up your box of frozen fried pickles and place the slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Don’t worry about thawing – we’re going for convenience here!
- Air Fry Away: Spray the frozen pickle slices with cooking spray. Pop them into the preheated air fryer and let them cook for 8-10 minutes, flipping halfway through. Keep a close eye on them to prevent overcooking. Cooking time may vary depending on your air fryer.
- Crispy Perfection: Once the frozen fried pickles are beautifully golden brown and crispy, take them out of the air fryer. Let them cool for a minute, resisting the urge to dive in right away – we know, it’s tough!
- Serve and Dip: Transfer your air-fried frozen fried pickles to a plate and serve them up with your favorite dipping sauces. Whether you’re a ranch aficionado or prefer a spicy aioli, these crispy delights are ready to be dipped and devoured.
Storing your air fryer pickles is simple, ensuring that you can enjoy the crispy goodness later without compromising on texture or flavor. Here’s a quick guide on how to store them:
- Cooling Down:Allow your air-fried pickles to cool completely before storing them. This prevents condensation and helps maintain their crispy texture.
- Airtight Container:Transfer the cooled pickles into an airtight container. The airtight seal helps preserve their crunchiness and prevents any odors from affecting the flavor.
- Layering with Parchment Paper:If you’re stacking multiple layers of pickles in the container, place a sheet of parchment paper between each layer. This prevents them from sticking together and maintains their individual crispiness.
- Refrigeration:While these pickles are typically best when enjoyed immediately, if you have leftovers, store the airtight container in the refrigerator. The cool temperature helps slow down any moisture absorption that could compromise the texture.
- Avoiding Humidity:Moisture is the enemy of crispiness. Be mindful of storing your air-fried pickles away from areas with high humidity, as it can soften the breading. The refrigerator is generally a low-humidity environment, making it suitable for short-term storage.
CAN I REFRIGERATE LEFTOVER FRIED PICKLES?
Absolutely! To preserve their crispy texture, store your air-fried pickles in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Just ensure they’re cooled completely before storing.
HOW LONG CAN I STORE THE COATED PICKLES?
While they’re best enjoyed fresh, you can store air-fried pickles in the refrigerator for a day or two. For optimal crispiness, it’s recommended to consume them within this timeframe.
CAN I REFREEZE THE AIR FRYER PICKLE RECIPE?
Freezing may affect the texture of the breading, so it’s not recommended for maintaining maximum crispiness. However, if you do freeze them, reheat in the air fryer for the best results.
HOW DO I REHEAT AIR FRYER PICKLES?
To reheat air-fried pickles, preheat your air fryer for a few minutes, then reheat the pickles for 2-3 minutes or until they reach your preferred level of warmth and crispiness.
CAN I STORE THESE WITH OTHER FUN APPETIZERS?
It’s best to store air-fried pickles separately from other fried foods to prevent moisture transfer, which could impact the crispiness. Individual storage helps maintain their unique texture.
CAN I MAKE MY OWN HOMEMADE PICKLES RECIPE?
Yes, absolutely. Using a whole pickle, beaten eggs, panko bread crumbs, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, black pepper, etc.
Ensure you are drying your juicy pickle with paper towels before cooking to give them a nice crunch.
WHAT ARE SOME OTHER APPETIZERS THAT PAIR WELL WITH THESE DILL PICKLE SLICES?
Can serve these with air fryer chicken wings, air fryer mozzarella sticks, air fryer onion rings, pork rinds, or any of your other favorite appetizers.
