Microwave potato chips... who knew?

Last night the mister made these potato chips in the microwave. They were delicious. And not fried!

  • A potato, sliced thinly
  • Vegetable or olive oil
  • Salt or seasoning
  1. Pour the oil into a bag or container. Add the potato slices. Shake to coat.
  2. Coat a large dinner plate with oil or cooking spray. (I think he lined the plate with parchment paper or a paper towel.) Arrange the potato slices in a single layer on the plate.
  3. Microwave for 3-7 minutes until lightly browned. In my microwave, they take somewhere between 5 and 6 minutes. Watch carefully because if they burn, they'll be bitter. I'd suggest trying 4 or 5 minutes at first and then doing short bursts of 15-20 seconds until you get them the way you want.
  4. Toss them with a little salt or whatever other seasoning you like.
