Quick Crunchy Potato Chips
Recipe Courtesy Devin Alexander
These potato chips are shockingly fresh and tasty right from the microwave, and they're healthier than almost any chips on the market. Plus, they're likely to save you a lot of cash since baked chips tend to be quite expensive, yet large bags of fresh potatoes are not.
Slice the potato into very thin (about 1/16-inch-thick) rounds. Place them in a large resealable plastic bag and drizzle the oil over them. Seal the bag and toss to evenly coat the potatoes. Season them with salt and toss again.
Cover a large microwave-safe dinner plate with parchment paper. Lightly mist the paper with spray. Working in batches if necessary, place the potato slice on the parchment in a single layer. Microwave the potatoes on high for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the chips are completely crisp (be careful not to burn them). Allow them to cool for about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
