The ultimate crispy, tangy snack! Gluten-Free Air Fryer Fried Pickles! This healthy version of the classic deep-fried Southern recipe is vegan, egg-free, allergy-free, & made without oil! Your favorite festival food, homemade, & served with a creamy ketchup dipping sauce! These pickle chips are a quick & easy appetizer everyone will love!



For the Creamy Ketchup Dip:**


  1. Drain the pickle slices between paper towels to drain off as much excess juice as possible.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the dijon mustard and non-dairy milk.
  3. In another bowl or plate, mix together the breadcrumbs, parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper.
  4. Prepare to bread your pickles by placing the two bowls, drained pickles, and air fryer basket in an assembly line.
  5. Take pickle slice and dip it in the dijon milk mixture, toss in the breadcrumbs, and then place it in the air fryer basket. Repeat until your air fryer basket in full (but not overcrowded).
  6. Air fry the pickles at 400°F for about 7 minutes, flip them, air fry again for another 3-5 minutes until the pickle chips are crisp and golden brown. Repeat this cooking process until you've completed all the pickle chips you have.
  7. To make the dipping sauce, mix together the yogurt (if you want the sauce more dripping and lighter)/mayo (thicker and more classic) and ketchup until combined.


*Adjust the seasonings to taste. I did not measure them.

**Adjust the amounts for the dip depending on your taste and consistency preferences.

***To Bake: Place the breaded pickle chips on a lined baking sheet to crisp up at 400°F for 10 minutes, flip, and bake another 5-10 minutes until they look golden brown and crisp.
