Ingredients for crispy air fryer artichoke hearts.


  • Canned artichoke hearts – well drained
  • Olive Oil – to coat and help seasoning to stick.
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Bread Crumbs – to help create that crispy texture.
  • Salt
  • Parmesan Cheese – helps to create a crispy texture and adds amazing flavor.


  • Use different seasonings – change up the flavor by trying out different seasonings like lemon pepper, cajun, fresh dill or za’atar seasoning.
  • Try pork rinds – change up the bread crumbs and use crumbled pork rinds instead for a slightly different flavor and texture profile.
  • Go gluten-free – just use the olive oil and seasoning and skip any crumbs to have a gluten-free option. Or you can use gluten-free bread crumbs.

How To Make Air Fryer Artichoke Hearts

Follow these super easy instructions to whip up a batch of these for yourself.

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400°F. Rinse the artichokes thoroughly under cold water.
  2. Cut the artichokes into quarters and completely dry with a paper towel.

  1. In a large bowl, add the artichokes, olive oil, Italian seasoning, salt and bread crumbs. Mix well to coat but not too rough so that the artichokes don’t fall apart.
  2. Place the coated artichokes into the air fryer basket cut side up and sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese.
  3. Air fry for 10-13 minutes or until the edges of the artichokes and the breading is brown and crispy.


  • Don’t crowd them – you may need to air fry them in batches depending on the size of your air fryer. There should be a little space between them to allow for air circulation otherwise they may not crisp up.
  • Mix gently – when mixing in oil and seasoning, you want to be sure to be gentle. Otherwise you may break the artichoke hearts up. Some leaves will break away, but it is nice to have whole artichoke halves for dipping.
  • Make sure they are dry – after rinsing the artichoke hearts make sure to discard any canning liquid and pat them completely dry with a paper towel. If not dried, they may not get fully crispy.

These can be stored in the refrigerator for 3 – 5 days if kept in an airtight container.

I don’t recommend freezing this recipe because by doing so you will lose all the crispy texture because the bread crumbs will become soggy. This recipe only takes a bit to prepare so hot out of the air fryer is best!

Air Fryer Artichoke FAQs

What are artichoke hearts?

Artichoke hearts are found in the center of an artichoke nestled under the leaves.

Can fresh artichoke hearts be used?

Yes, fresh artichoke hearts can be used, but will take more time as they have to be trimmed and steamed. Frozen artichoke hearts can also be used if thawed first.

Can these be made in the oven?

Yes, these can be made in an oven. The convection setting works best, but broil can also be used for a few minutes at the end. Just be sure to keep an eye on them so they don’t burn.
