Sometimes I just crave a crispy sweet potato fry dipped in some magical sauce. Anybody else feel me on that? If I am making lettuce wrap burger or chicken tenders, sweet potato fries are a must. I find that getting sweet potato fries crispy can sometimes be a hard task. I worked on using my air fryer to come up with a crispy sweet potato fry and I would say, they turned out to be crispy and perfect. The best news, they only took 10 minutes in the air fryer.

What is an air fryer and is it a good investment?

An air fryer is a kitchen appliance used for cooking for really any and everything. There is a basket that food is placed in to cook. The air fryer blows heat around the space, which crisps up the outer surface of food. The air fryer is my TOP kitchen gadget and I use it weekly and sometimes daily.  I love it because it cooks anything quickly and evenly.

What’s the key to getting these tenders crispy in the air fryer?

The key to getting a nice crisp on the chicken tenders is,

  • Spray the sweet potato fries with olive oil cooking spray.
  • Make sure there is room between each tender. (This is crucial for getting a good crisp)
  • Shaking the basket ever 10 minutes to make sure they are cooking evenly.
  • Increasing the temperature the last 5 minutes.

Can you freeze sweet potato fries after they are cooked?

Yes. These are great to make ahead in a big batch and freeze in a freezer proof container. Anytime I make these I will make a double batch and freeze for easy side dishes that go great with a protein option on a busy weeknight. It takes no time at all to throw in the oven or air fryer to heat up. I will usually just put them back in the air fryer and cook on 400 F for 5 to 6 minutes are they are ready to eat.
