Air Fryer Wonton Chips are wonton skin cooked in an air fryer. The air fryer works like a toaster oven, but with the addition of hot air. This creates a unique cooking experience that allows you to get the crispy texture of fried food without all of the grease or calories! The air fryer uses less oil and there is no mess to clean up afterward. They are crispy like tortilla chips but made with wontons which are crispy on the outside and taste delicious.
Air fry wonton chips can be prepared in just a few minutes using two simple ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. You will need:
One package of Wonton Wrappers: Now, don't get confused with the dumpling wrapper, they are different. Wrappers for wontons are thin and smooth, while those for dumplings are thicker and textured. Some people use egg roll wrappers to make wonton chips, egg roll wrappers and wonton wrappers use similar ingredients except the egg roll wrapper is much bigger.
Oil: You will need to brush some oil on the wonton wrappers to start with. You may wonder what kind of oil you should use. Any type of vegetable, neutral-flavor oil works such as olive oil, avocado oil, or sesame oil! A non-stick cooking spray works too.
Deep fry these wonton skins for 1-2 minutes. Using a spider strainer or a slotted spoon, scoop them up and transfer them to the cooling rack, with parchment paper underneath to let them cool and harden.
How to Make Air fryer Wonton Chips
Start by cutting the wonton wrappers into half-inch wide strips. The wonton wrappers should be brushed or dipped in vegetable oil and then wipe off the excess. (you can also use nonstick cooking spray instead) Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees. Then cook the wonton chips at 350 degrees in a single layer.
Air fry for about 4 minutes. shaking the basket occasionally. Repeat with remaining strips in small batches until finished. After the wonton chips have cooled, serve them with your favorite dipping sauce. That’s it.
How Do You Serve These Tasty Chips
These crispy wonton strips are crispy and crunchy. You can sprinkle them with some sea salt and black pepper. You can even serve them with cheddar cheese. The result is a quick, easy, and delicious snack that everyone will love!
Dipping Sauce Options
Try duck sauce, which you can normally get from any Asian market or local grocery store. Another good sauce for the wonton chips is sweet chili sauce if you love spicy food. Cream cheese and sour cream dips are for the cheese lover. Feel free to use your favorite dips.
Storage and Reheat
You can store the leftover crispy wonton chips in an airtight container at room temperature. Reheat the leftover wonton chips and line them up in a single layer in the air fry basket, this should give it an extra delicious crunch. For the uncooked leftover wonton wrappers, you can wrap wonton wrappers tightly in plastic and store them in a zip-lock bag for up to three months.
