How to prepare polenta recipe in air fryer

  1. If you don't have leftover polenta, the first step is to prepare it. Both instant polenta , the one ready in 10 minutes, and the long-cooking one are fine. In both cases, bring the salted water to the boil, then pour in the flour, stirring with a whisk.
  2. Bake for the necessary time based on the chosen flour and once ready pour it onto a pan lined with parchment paper trying to obtain a uniform thickness.
  3. Let it cool completely before cutting it into sticks 1 cm wide and 10 cm long.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the oil, the rosemary chopped with a knife, the garlic powder and a pinch of salt and mix everything well. With the help of a kitchen brush, distribute the sauce on the polenta sticks.
  5. Place them in the basket of the air fryer and cook at 200°C for 15 minutes . Serve them piping hot and crunchy.

Another way to prepare polenta chips is in the oven : in both cases they are excellent on their own or accompanied with a cheese fondue.


Air fryer polenta will keep for 2-3 days in the refrigerator . We advise you to heat it for a couple of minutes in the air fryer before enjoying it.
