I’m so excited to share this Air Fryer Potato Wedges recipe with you all. After many test, I finally figured out how to make the perfect KFC copycat wedges in your air fryer.
If you’ve been following my blog journey from week to week, you’ll notice that I’m obsessed with my Air Fryer. I bought it when I was pregnant because I was craving french fries. My first air fryer recipe shared here was this Air Fryer General Tso Chicken Recipe.
Now, I currently own 3 Air Fryers because I love them so much.
Ok, so back to these wedges. I’m a huge fan of breaded fries. Like the kind they serve at KFC and the gas stations that serve fried chicken. Yes y’all, gas stations in North Carolina throw down on some fried chicken and wedges.
These wedges take a little more effort than traditional potato wedges but it’s so worth it in the end.
How to make these Breaded Air Fryer Potato Wedges
First, grab two equally sized Russet potatoes. Then, you’ll cut them into equal sized wedges. Here’s a good graph on how to cut potato wedges. Make sure the wedges are of similar size so they cook evenly.
Then whisk your egg and milk in a medium sized bowl. Place your potato wedges in the bowl and coat them with the mixture. Set aside.
Next, in another medium bowl, combine your flour, seasoning salt, garlic powder, paprika, and black pepper in a bowl and stir until combined.
Next, take your potato wedges and coat them in the flour mixture, making sure all sides are covered. Shake off any excess flour.
Once your wedges are coated, it’s time to place them in the Air Fryer basket. Spray the bottom of the Air Fryer basket with oil so your wedges won’t stick. Then lay them in a single layer on the air fryer basket.
Then spray your air fryer wedges to cover any flour spots.
Close the air Fryer and set the temperature to 360 degrees Fahrenheit for 22 minutes. After 11 minutes, open your Air Fryer. If you see any spots of flour on these side of the wedges, spray them with oil. Then, flip your wedges and spray this side with oil. Close the air fryer and cook for the remaining 11 minutes.
And done 🙂 Once this batch of wedges is done, repeat until all your potato wedges are cooked.
And there you have it. Delicous golden breaded potato wedges just like KFC and the gas station 🙂

Notes on Air Fryer Potato Wedges
- I recommend that you cook these wedges in batches. You can add all the wedges in at the same time but it would require for you to turn the wedges every five minutes or so with a silicone tongs. For best results, laying the wedges in a single layer is suggested.
- I suggest you serve these wedges with ketchup.
