Easy to make potato chips in the microwave.
  • 1 russet potato
  • Non stick spray
  • Parchment paper or glass plate
  • Salt and Pepper
  1. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the inside of your microwave.
  2. Carefully slice1/3 of a potato into paper thin slices using a mandoline, vegetable peeler, or sharp knife. You don't want to cut any more than this because any extra slices laying around waiting to be cooked will turn pink in color.
  3. Completely coat the parchment paper with non-stick spray and place the potato slices in a single layer. Spray the potato slices with non stick spray and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Turn off the rotating option on your microwave and cook for 4-5 minutes. Cooking times will vary based on the strength and power of your microwave. Some chips may turn very dark brown. Ideally you want them light and golden.
  5. Also in my microwave some of the chips on the outside layer didn't cook as quick as the ones towards the middle, so you may need to remove the ones in the middle and cook the outer ones for an additional minute. Repeat the process until you've used your entire potato. Enjoy!
