Step 2
Into medium bowl, add flour.

Step 3
In another medium bowl, whisk eggs.

Step 4
Pat pickle spears dry with paper towel. Dredge spears in flour, dip in eggs and roll in ground chips mixture until well coated. Transfer to parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Spray lightly with cooking spray.

Step 5
Preheat air fryer to 400°F according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Step 6
In batches to avoid crowding, arrange breaded pickle spears in air-fryer basket. Air-fry, flipping halfway through, for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 7
Dipping Sauce: In medium bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, pickle juice, garlic, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.
