Hey all, this is a wonderful recipe i found in my moms cooking light magazine. They are so delicious and infinitely better than regular potato chips!
This is what you need:
Potatoes
Oil, Like olive
Salt
Cooking Spray

1. Peel potato, and slice. I always use the tomato slicer that comes on most cheese graters, it gives you perfect slices! You can slice them thinner or thicker, it doesnt matter, its just a matter of preference.

2. Lay out a napkin flat, and place all your slices on it. You'll probably need more than one, depending on your potato size. Put another napkin on top and pat slices down. This step isnt totally necessary  but i find that it really increases the quality.

3. Put your slices in a medium bowl, and add oil, just enough to thinnly coat each slice. Add salt as desired.

4. Spray a microwave safe plate with cooking spray, and arrange as many slices as you can on the plate. Dont let them touch, or else they'll fuse together haha

5. The next part is tricky to get right, because each microwave is different, but i use this rule of thumb..if your chips are thin like standard potato chips, puut them in for 2 minutes, remove, flip them over, and nuke for 1 more minute.

If they are thicker, i usually try three minutes, flip them, and then cook for 2 more minutes.
Its all about experimentation, so if your fist batch doesn't turn out right, you always have more slices to toy with!

When your slices are done, the should look yellow, like normal chips or a bit darker, golden. Thats the color i try to achieve, its so delicious!

Its very best to enjoy your chips hot, but if you used thicker slices, let them cool a few minutes, because they crisp as they cool.

Please let me know if you tried this recipe, and how it turned out! If you need any more pointers, just ask Wink

I haven't done this in the microwave yet, just the oven. My food processor makes thinner slices than I can achieve by hand. (My box grater is a piece of junk.).

I bet this is good with sweet potatoes, too.

mm yes ive been meaning to make sweet potato chips for my mom, she loves them.
and i wanted to try making apple chips, using brown sugar and cinnoman instead of salt. But i was wandering, should i use oil still? or use something else?
