Microwave Potato Chips! Amazing!


These potato chips were made in the microwave.  I opened them up at the pool and all the kids scooped them up.  The adults couldn’t believe they came out of the microwave.  I wasn’t really expecting potatoes from the CSA this week.  When I couldn’t find the potato chips I was looking for, I remembered this technique and thought they’d be the perfect summer, pool side use for the potatoes.  This technique never ceases to amaze me.

You start by fitting a piece of parchment paper to your microwave plate.

Slice the potatoes thin and toss with olive oil and salt.  Place them in a single layer on the parchment on the microwave plate. 

Cook in the microwave until crispy and beginning to brown.

1 pound potatoes, thinly sliced
1 T olive oil
Salt, to taste
Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit your microwave plate. 
Toss potato slices with olive oil and salt.  Place the potato slices in a single layer on the parchment paper on the microwave plate.  Microwave on high for 4 minutes.  Then in smaller time increments until the chips begin to brown.  Remove and enjoy!
NOTE: The timing for the chips varies.  I usually start with 4 – 6 minutes then work in 2 minute increments until the potato slices are golden.
