How to Make Homemade Microwave Potato Chips

Have you ever heard of making potato chips in the microwave? When you have cravings for a crunchy and spicy snack try this recipe for Homemade Microwave Potato Chips. This recipe will give you a crispy chip and you will be eating them in around five minutes. You can season them with sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder, seasoning salt, cayenne pepper or any seasoning that you prefer. A mandoline works best to cut the potatoes paper thin, but you can use a vegetable peeler or slice the potato very thinly with a knife.

Ingredients for making Homemade Microwave Potato Chips:
1 russet potato, yellow gold, white or red potatoes
Non stick spray
Parchment paper or glass plate
Seasonings, your choice

Directions for making Homemade Microwave Potato Chips:
Step 1: Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of your microwave or use a microwavable plate or dish.
Step 2: Carefully slice1/3 of a potato into paper thin slices using a mandoline, vegetable peeler, or sharp knife.
Step 3: Only cut 1/3 of potato because any extra slices lying around waiting to be cooked will turn brown.
Step 4: Completely coat the parchment paper or microwavable plate with non-stick spray and place the potato slices in a single layer.
Step 5: Spray the potato slices with non stick spray and lightly sprinkle with desired seasonings.
Step 6: Place another piece of parchment paper on top, this helps the potato cook evenly.
Step 7: Microwaving time should be between 5 and 6 minutes. Cooking times will vary based on the strength and power of your microwave.

Spices you can use; cracked black pepper, grated parmesan, granulated garlic powder, seasoning salt, cayenne pepper, dried dill weed, granulated garlic powder
In place of parchment paper you can use a glass microwavable plate brush with vegetable oil instead of non-stick spray.
Do not crowd the plate, the chips will cook more evenly.

Use only microwavable plates or dishes.

Use caution when using a mandoline or sharp knife to cut potatoes.
