21st recipe Microwave Potato Chips

Microwave Potato Chips

You don't need a deep fryer to make crispy potato chips. We toss thinly sliced potatoes with just a touch of olive oil, pop them in the microwave and voilà! Crispy, crunchy homemade potato chips with 8 grams less fat per serving than regular chips.



Microwave Potato Chips Recipe
4 servings, 12-14 chips each
Active Time: 
Total Time: 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/3 pounds Yukon Gold or red potatoes, unpeeled, scrubbed
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

PREPARATION

  1. Slice potatoes into thin (1/8-inch) rounds. Toss the slices in a medium bowl with oil and salt to coat evenly.
  2. Coat a large microwave-proof plate with cooking spray. Arrange some potato slices in a single layer on the plate. Microwave, uncovered, on High until some slices start to brown, 2 to 3 minutes (depending on potato thickness and microwave power). Turn the slices over and continue microwaving until they start to crisp and brown around the edges, 2 to 4 minutes more. Check frequently and rearrange slices as needed to prevent scorching. Transfer the chips to another plate and allow to cool completely. (They will crisp more as they cool.) Repeat with the remaining potato slices.

TIPS & NOTES

  • Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
