The ingredients and tools laying on a wood cutting board

Equipment

Place the pieces in a single layer in your air fryer basket.

Air fry, being sure to flip over, and let cool.

Note: If your pita bread has the pocket in the middle, it will likely be easier to separate the top and the bottom to create two sets of 8 per pita resulting in thinner and crisper chips. If left as one piece, the two sides might separate as they cook. The bread will likely also need a little shorter cooking time.

Modifications and Substitutions

Add additional seasonings as desired based on how you are eating the chips. Ideas include using oregano, black pepper, and Parmesan.

You can also cut each chip in half to make 16 smaller chips per pita. The smaller chips get crisper more easily when baking and therefore might need a slightly shorter baking time.

Kim’s Tips

Flipping the chips is key to make sure both sides get crisp!

Let the chips cool for a few minutes as they will continue to crisp up at this stage.
