Ready for something that will blow your mind!?! If you are craving some crispy, salty potato chips I have a super easy, quick way to make them at home. You’ll be done before you would’ve even got back from the store. All you need is a potato, a tablespoon or so of oil, and salt. You can use cooking spray too (I prefer to use a oil mister, less chemicals but do whatever floats your boat!)
Take your potato and slice is super thin. I use my veggie peeler to do this. My hubby got me a ceramic gel handled one that works great and makes nice slices. Trim the ends off the potato so you have a flat surface to start with.
After you’ve sliced your whole potato add a tablespoon of vegetable oil (or any oil you prefer) and stir to coat your slices. Arrange your slices on an oven safe plate that’s been oil misted or sprayed with no stick spray. Make sure they don’t touch. All of your slices won’t fit on the plate. Don’t worry you can do batches. Put them in the microwave for 3 minutes. They’ll look a little translucent like they are starting to cook.
Flip your slices over and stick them back into the microwave. Microwave for 2 more minutes. At this point check on them. If they’re not browning yet microwave them for 30 second intervals til they start to turn a light golden brown. If you like your chips darker feel free to go a little longer with this. Carefully (the plate will be HOT) take them off and put them on a plate, bowl, etc. They cool off pretty quick and then you can dig in! Trust me you may never want to buy chips again. Here is a final tip… if you do several batches on the same plate without letting it cool your chips may cook quicker so be sure to start watching after you flip them. Enjoy!
