Preparation time: 15 minutes

Difficulty: Easy


  • 1 pound fresh chestnuts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt to taste

Steps to follow:

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Using a sharp knife, carefully score an "X" on the flat side of each chestnut.
  3. Place the scored chestnuts in a single layer in the air fryer basket.
  4. Drizzle the chestnuts with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  5. Cook in the air fryer for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through to ensure even cooking.
  6. Once the chestnuts are tender and the outer shells begin to split, remove them from the air fryer.
  7. Allow the roasted chestnuts to cool for a few minutes before peeling and enjoying.

Tricks and tips:

  • To ease peeling, cover the cooked chestnuts with a kitchen towel for a few minutes to steam.
  • Select chestnuts that feel heavy for their size and have a glossy, unblemished shell.
  • Keep an eye on the cooking time, as chestnuts can quickly become overcooked and dry out.

Benefits of the ingredients used:

In addition to being a delicious snack, chestnuts are a good source of fiber and vitamins, making them a wholesome option for those looking for a nutritious treat. Olive oil provides heart-healthy fats, while a sprinkle of salt adds flavor without excess sodium.

We hope you enjoy making and savoring these roasted chestnuts in your air fryer. Happy snacking!
