Clean Eating Rosemary Polenta Chips with ActiFry + A Giveaway

Clean Eating Polenta ChipsClean Eating Polenta ChipsClean Eating Polenta ChipsHave you ever tried polenta chips before? We have had them a couple of times at Jamie’s Italian restaurant and loved them, so when Tefal kindly offered to send me an ActiFry, I knew that I wanted to re create the tasty potato-less chips in it!

Do you ever get stuck for ideas when it comes to healthy eating? You can keep up to date with all of my new clean and delicious recipes by subscribing to my newsletter. It is quick and easy to subscribe and you will receive all of the new recipes right to your inbox. Click her to sign up!

I have been eyeing up my Mother in Laws ActiFry for a long time now and so being able to use one this week has been so much fun. I am literally Actifrying everything! (I just put my boys to bed and came down to make myself some cinnamon spiced apples to warm me up). SO GOOD! I am in love!

The Actifry Express XL is so easy to clean and reassemble which is always important to me when trying out a new kitchen appliance. It is like having an oven and a hob all in one on the counter top. There is no waiting around for it to pre heat, you just put your ingredients in, close the lid and turn it on.

One of the key features and benefits of the ActiFry is its ability to cook and crisp up food without using lots of oil. Some recipes need no oil at all. This is definitely a great plus for the health concious cook who still wants to enjoy delicious comfort food. I cannot wait to see what else it can do and I’m sure that there will be many more ActiFry recipes coming to the blog very soon.

Clean Eating Rosemary Polenta Chips with ActiFry

Clean Eating Rosemary Polenta Chips with ActiFry + A Giveaway 4

By Published:

  • Yield: 2 Servings

These Polenta Chips are so tasty. They leave the kitchen smelling gorgeous and are a wonderful change from regular potato chips and the ActiFry makes them deliciously crunchy on the outside whilst keeping them soft and fluffy on the inside. Genius!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place the water and a pinch of salt into a saucepan and bring to the boil.
  2. Once bubbling, reduce the heat to low and slowly add the polenta.
  3. Stir for 2-3 minutes until the polenta has thickened.
  4. Remove from the heat and pour into a non stick pan (I used a cake tin) and smooth and flatten with a spatula.
  5. Allow the polenta to cool for about 10 minutes before carefully turning out onto a wire cooling rack.
  6. Allow to cool for a further 10 - 15 minutes and place into the fridge for 20 minutes to firm up some more.
  7. Once the polenta is cooled and firm, cut into 1cm wide 'chips'.
  8. Place the polenta chips into the ActiFry and drizzle over the oil, rosemary and an extra pinch of sea salt.
  9. Close the lid and turn on the ActiFry. Cook for 18-20 minutes until crisp.
  10. Serve with a sprinkle of parmasan or nutritional yeast if desired.

    I would love to make these polenta chips! I’ve also had them in a restaurant before but never been able to recreate them properly at home. And of course sweet potato fries and wedges! Yum!

    I love anything “chips”! I’d love an actifry (hint, hint hubby!) and I’d love to try these, the swede chips and sweet potato chips! I might also take a break from chips and make some sweet potato crisps! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I use my dad’s actifry to make chilli and garlic infused celeriac chips. My all time favourite and my mum’s too. Taste even better knowing they are healthy ๐Ÿ™‚

    I used to have an older version. I would make Mediterranean vegetable with butternut squash. Quick easy and simple. Cut up your vegetables add some olive oil. Set the timer for 25-30 mins…then enjoy. Serve with a nice steak,fish or chicken.

    I would definitely want to make Italian arancini !! – which I adore but don’t have very often as they are usually deep fried and my waistline can’t take it… These are arborio/risotto rice balls stuffed with either meat and/or cheese and/or tomato sauce. They’d actually be even more delicious done the Actifry way – no worrying about weight!

    I keep debating on whether to get a fryer like this so that I can make some things I don’t normally make as I am loathe to deep fry anything. It might be my gift to myself when we move into our house ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just tried these in my actifry, they got churned up into a huge mess! (Still tasty though), what did I do wrong? I doubled the recipe as I have two hungry kids….did I overload it?

    I have tried cooking chicken with pineapple today.
    From “We All Cook” book.
    It didn’t look like the picture in the book.
    The recipe said marinate for 5 minutes. Does it mean leave to stand or set the acti fry going for 5 minutes?
    Please help. I just want it to be successful

    Could you please let me know. I wan worried the paddle will smoosh the polenta before itโ€™s set. Did you do something special or will it not squish it?

    Thanks

      Hi Jacqui! The polenta sets quite firm, so once it has had its 20 mins in the fridge it is good to be cut up and cooked in the ActiFry, it doesn’t get squished ๐Ÿ™‚
