Fried Pickles is literally one of my favorite snacks. Dip them into ranch and we are in business!
I knew that I needed to put my air fryer to good snack making use and make some air fryer fried pickles. Air Fryer recipes are pretty hot right now. Everyone seems to be coming out with air fryer cookbooks and air fryer recipe books.
There are endless ideas and recipes out there. Today, it is all about air fryer pickles. When I say they are easy, I am not kidding.
Soggy Gluten Free Fried Pickles
Pickles can hold quite a bit of moisture. If you end up with soggy pickles it is probably because the pickles had a wee bit too much of moisture in them. Next time around, go ahead and pat dry the pickles before coating with the mixture.
Love spicy easy fried pickles?
If you LOVE a little spice or hotness to your food, I have a fix for you! You can add some hot sauce to the liquid mixture during the coating process. This will help give those little pickles some KICK!
Can you change the pickle?
Yes, you can change the pickle if you wish. I would suggest sticking with a dill pickle in spear or rounds. But if you want a sweeter one, you can opt for a bread and butter pickle. My personal opinion is the dill is the way to go!
Can I use a whole pickle?
You can start with a whole pickle. You know the ones that are sold in a big jar on deli counters? You can start with those and use a crinkle cutter (affiliate ad link) to make slices! If you want to make life easy you can just opt for pickle chips that are already pre-cut!
Fried Pickle Dipping Sauce Recommendations
Oh, this is getting me hungry with all this pickle talk! Whether you make your pickles in the air fryer or in the skillet, you need a good dipping sauce! Am I right?!
I am personally a big fan of dipping my air fryer pickles, deep fried pickles OR pan fried pickles into ranch! You can use a commercial brand of ranch, but if you’d like to make a homemade version you can try my dairy-free ranch.
You could also use a spicy mayo or a comeback sauce!

Let’s check out this air fryer recipe!
Remove the pickle rounds from the jar and drain the liquid. Place the pickle rounds between paper towels. Pat to remove moisture.
In a small bowl, scramble the egg. (add maple syrup here if you choose)
In a second small bowl, place the panko bread crumbs.
Gently dip the pickles in egg mixture. Dip into bread crumbs and coat both sides.
Place pickle chips into a single layer into your air fryer. Fry at 400 degrees F for 8 minutes. Turn pickles after 4 minutes. (Do not shake the basket, manually flip each pickle)
I used a gluten-free panko bread crumb mixture to meet my dietary restrictions. I specifically used an Ian's Italian Seasoned one and it was delicious. Use whatever panko bread crumbs fit your needs and your taste.
Run out of egg and pankos in your bowl? Just add more. No biggie. This recipe is MEGA easy, just add more if you need it.
