Air-Fried Kale Chips


I harvested some kale from my garden this weekend and decided to make chips in an air fryer instead of the oven. It's super quick!

4 servings


  • 6 ounces kale leaves

  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon paprika

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 pinch ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste


  1. Preheat an air fryer to 360 degrees F (180 degrees C) according to manufacturer's instructions.

  2. Stir kale leaves off the stems and chop into small pieces. Place in a large bowl; add olive oil, salt, paprika, garlic powder, pepper, and cayenne. Toss until well coated.

  3. Add a layer of kale leaves to the air fryer basket. Cook for 3 minutes. Shake the basket and pour kale out onto a cutting board or baking sheet to cool and crisp up. Repeat with remaining kale, working in batches to prevent it from steaming and getting soggy.

Cook's Notes:

Use another blend of spices or stick to just salt and pepper. The varieties are endless.

Please adjust cooking temperature and time based on your air fryer. They can vary quite a bit; this is the temperature and time that worked for me.
