  • In a small bowl, combine 1 Tbsp olive oil, 3/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper, and 1/2 tsp garlic powder.
  • Now slice up 4 medium zucchini into 1/2 inch slices. This thickness will give you a balance of outer browning along with tender centers. If you want them crispy, you will need to slice them very thin. This is a personal choice.
  • Place the sliced zucchini into a large bowl and add the olive oil and spice mixture on top. Toss to coat the zucchini slices evenly.
  • Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 5 minutes. Then air fryer the seasoned zucchini chips in batches for about 10 minutes. No need to flip them. Tip: make sure not to overlap any zucchini to ensure even airflow and cooking.


  • Don't salt the zucchini too far in advance- Because salt draws moisture out of the zucchini, don't salt too soon or the water will repel the oil, causing your spices to slide off.
  • Preheat the air fryer- Let the air fryer come to temp before adding the zucchini. They will cook more quickly and also crisp on the outside when it's preheated.
  • Lay the zucchini in one layer- Make sure you don't overlap any zucchini to ensure even airflow and cooking. You will likely need to cook them in batches since they won't all fit in the air fryer basket at once.
  • Don't flip them- This is an unnecessary step and will reduce the temperature in the air fryer if you stop to flip the zucchini chips. They really don't need it.
