Recipe by Fork to spoon


  1.  Six big russet potatoes
  2. Two tsp olive oil
  3. To taste, add salt and black pepper.
  4. Six cooked and chopped chicken strips
  5. 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  6. and 1/2 cup sour cream
  7. Two tablespoons of freshly cut chives
  8. Extra toppings at your discretion: chopped green onions, diced tomatoes, and spicy sauce


  • Warm up the air fryer. Set your air fryer’s temperature to 400°F (200°C) in the meantime as you get the potatoes ready.
  • After giving the russet potatoes a good scrub, use paper towels to pat them dry.
  • Make several holes in each potato with a fork so that steam can escape while it cooks.
  • Make sure the potato skins are well-coated by giving them a light olive oil brush.
  • To taste, add a dash of salt and black pepper to the skins.
  • Put the cooked potatoes into the air fryer basket that has been warmed.
  • The potatoes should be air-fried for 30 to 40 minutes, rotating them halfway through, or until the insides are soft and the skins are crispy.
  • Cook the chicken in a different pan or microwave until crispy while the potatoes are cooking. Once cooked, break it up or cut it into tiny bits.
  • After letting the cooked potatoes cool a little, cut them in half lengthwise.
  • Remove the majority of the potato flesh with care, leaving about ¼ inch still attached to the skins. Put the potato you scooped out aside for later use (like mashed potatoes).
  • Every potato skin should have some grated cheddar cheese inside.
  • Place the crumbled chicken slice on top.
  • Place the loaded potato skins back into the basket of the air fryer.
  • The cheese should be melted and bubbling after a further five to seven minutes of air fry time.
  • Take the hot potato skins out of the air fryer with care.
  • Top each potato skin with a sprinkling of finely chopped fresh chives and a dollop of sour cream.
  • Add optional toppings to your loaded potato skins, such as chopped green onions, diced tomatoes, or a sprinkling of spicy sauce.
  • Have fun: While still hot and oozy, serve your Air Fryer Loaded Potato Skins right away. They are a great snack or appetizer for any occasion.
