Air Fryer Potato Slices – Weight Watchers Friendly


  • Potatoes (russet, Yukon Gold, or your preferred variety)
  • Cooking oil (such as olive oil or vegetable oil)
  • Seasonings (salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, etc.)


Prepare the Potatoes:

  1. Wash the potatoes and leave the skin on for added texture and nutrients. No need to peel.
  2. Slice the potatoes into your desired thickness. Keep in mind that thinner slices will cook faster and become crispier.

Season the Slices:

  1. Place the sliced potatoes in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Drizzle a small amount of cooking oil over the slices and gently toss to ensure they are lightly coated with oil.
  3. Season the potatoes with your choice of seasonings. Common choices include salt, pepper, and paprika, but feel free to experiment with other herbs and spices.

Preheat the Air Fryer:

  1. Preheat your air fryer to the recommended temperature for making fries or potato chips, typically around 375°F (190°C).

Cook the Potatoes:

  1. Arrange the seasoned potato slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket, ensuring they are not overlapping for even cooking.
  2. Cook for about 10-15 minutes, pausing to shake or flip the slices halfway through the cooking time.
  3. Cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the potato slices and your specific air fryer model. Keep a close eye on them and adjust the cooking time as needed to achieve your desired level of crispiness.


  1. Once the potato slices are golden brown and crispy, remove them from the air fryer.
  2. Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauces like ketchup, mayonnaise, or aioli.
