A Guilt-Free Air Fryer Fried Pickles Recipe You Should Try
For the pickles:
- 1 jar dill pickle chips
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp garlic powder
Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees F.
Use a paper towel to pat your pickles dry. Make sure they’re completely dry, otherwise you won’t get that crunch.
Crack your egg in a bowl and beat it with either a fork or an egg whisk.
Get another bowl and mix your bread crumbs, garlic powder, oregano, and parmesan cheese. Stir until combined.
Dip your pickles in flour, then in the beaten egg, then in the breading mixture. Make sure to coat the pickles completely and shake off any excess.
Now that your pickle chips are coated in the breading, place a single layer of chips in the air fryer basket and cook them at 400 degrees F for 7-10 minutes.
Cook the pickles in batches until you’re done with all of them.
Serve your air fryer fried pickles with your dressing of choice and enjoy.

Air Fryer Fried Pickles: Tips and Tricks
There are many ways you can have air fryer fried pickles.
1. Use Fresh Pickle Slices
While pickle chips are the easiest way to get your guilt-free fried food fix, you can make this recipe with fresh pickles. What’s more important is that you completely dry your pickles before dipping them in the breading
2. Experiment with Spices
The sky’s the limit with the herbs and spices you can use with your air fryer pickles.
Want to use some paprika or cayenne pepper for a spicy kick? Go for it!
3. Use Panko Crumbs
What are panko crumbs? This is a type of bread crumbs originating in Japan. Unlike regular bread crumbs (which came from bread crusts) panko crumbs came from crustless bread, which gives it its light, airy texture.
Panko bread crumbs give your fried pickles a light, fluffy crunch you wouldn’t get with regular bread crumbs. Because it doesn’t absorb as much oil, pickles coated with panko crumbs stay crisp for longer periods.
4. Use Almond Flour and Pork Rinds
Are you on keto? No need to worry because we got you.
Just substitute your all-purpose flour with almond flour and your bread crumbs with some pork rinds. Instant crunch without all the carbs.
