Here are the simple and easy ingredients and others may already be in your kitchen.

Sweet Potato – Sliced into chunks. I still got a lot of white sweet potatoes, thanks to momma’s farm and generosity.

Salt and pepper – for seasoning

Paprika – it adds a hint of heat into the sweet potatoes

Thyme – it adds aroma and flavor to these lovely sweet potato chunks

Parmesan Cheese Powder – This is totally optional.  But when we added it right after cooking the potatoes, my kiddo loves it a lot so we give it a go.  Nevertheless, the sweet potato chunks is already good in itself without this cheese powder.

How to Make Air Fryer Sweet Potato Chunks

1. Wash and cut the potatoes into chunks

Chop the sweet potatoes into small chunks.  I personally cut my potatoes into small sizes so that they will cook quicker in the air fryer.

2. Mix it with your favorite or preferred seasonings.

You can get creative and experiment with the flavor profiles of your sweet potato chunks in this part.

For mine, I put olive oil, paprika, thyme, salt and pepper. Then I sprinkle parmesan cheese powder right after removing them from the air fryer and it is delicious.

3. Air fry the sweet potatoes chunks and enjoy

So, after mixing with your seasonings. It is now time for you to air fry your sweet potato chunks.  Air frying time depends on the sizes of your chunks.  For mine, I air fried it for 10-12 minutes.
