Microwave Potato Chips Recipe:

Recipe Type: Appetizer, Potatoes, Potato Chips
Yields: serves many
Prep time: 20 min
Bake time: 10 min


4 medium potatoes (Idaho, russet, yellow gold, or red potatoes)
Vegetable oil or non-stick cooking spray

Herbs, your choice (granulated garlic powder, seasoning salt, chili or cayenne pepper, dried dill weed, Old Bay Seasoning, etc.)


Scrub and peel the potatoes. Using a mandoline or a thin, sharp knife, slicing potatoes approximately 1/16-inch to 1/8 inch-thick. 

To remove potato starch, rinse the slices in a bowl of cold water; change the water twice. Pat the slices thoroughly dry with paper towels.

Sprinkle sliced potatoes with your choice of spices or herbs or just leave them plain.

If you have a microwave bacon tray, lightly rub the tray with vegetable oil or cooking spray. Place the sliced potatoes flat on the tray in a single layer. If you do not have a bacon tray, use a microwave-safe casserole dish. Rub the inside of the dish with some olive oil or spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Cover with a microwaveable, round heavy plastic cover. Microwave on HIGH for 4 minutes; turn slices over and continue to microwave on high another 3 to 5 minutes. Potatoes are done when they are lightly browned (if they aren't browned, they won't get crisp). NOTE: Cooking time could vary slightly, depending on the wattage of your microwave and the thickness of the chips.
