Microwave Potato Chips Recipe:
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.
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).
Cooking time could vary slightly, depending on
the wattage of your microwave and the thickness of the chips.
