💡 Air Frying Pro Tip

For optimal results when air frying, ensure that all the artichoke hearts are spread out in a Single Layer and Not Overcrowded. This ensures even cooking, resulting in perfectly crispy and delicious artichoke hearts.

💡 Artichoke Hearts Notes

Artichoke hearts Do Not Need to be Thawed before air frying, this recipe accounts for the cooking time for unthawed artichoke hearts. If using thawed artichoke hearts, the cooking time will be reduced.

Step 2 Open the air fryer, season the artichoke hearts with salt and black pepper, and continue to air fry for another 5-8 minutes until the edges are golden brown.
