Welcome back to Jaime’s Lazy Late Night Cooking Corner, the show where I whip up last-minute single serve microwave treats every Thursday while wearing my robe. This week we are eschewing our sweet tooth and going full-on PMS salt-craving (which is truly where my heart lies) with a recipe for four-minute microwave potato chips. Who knew it was this easy? I did, and now I’m sharing that sacred knowledge with you. Use it wisely, women.
In previous episodes we’ve made 4 Minute Microwave Carrot Cake, Bye Bye Bunny Microwave Peep S’mores, Single Serve Microwave Rice Krispy Treats, Microwave Blueberry Cobbler in a Cup, Microwave Strawberry Shortcake for Two, a Microwave Lemon Bar, Two-Minute Microwave Cheesecake in a Cup, 3-minute Microwave Guinness Chocolate Cake, and even a Microwave Cinnamon Roll. Now it’s time to get savory in a hurry with a potato.
Learn how to make 4 Minute Microwave Potato Chips in the video above and get the ingredients after the jump…
4 Minute Microwave Potato Chips Recipe
Spices of your choosing
Wash and scrub your potato/potatoes
Slice thin with a mandolin
Place potato slices in a plastic bag
Add a tablespoon or so of olive oil (enough to coat all the slices)
Mash the slices in the bag to cover them all with oil
Remove your coated potato slices to a plate, evenly distributed so they aren’t in layers
Microwave until they just start to brown but are still floppy (start with 4 minutes, that is probably enough)
Remove to a cooling rack and sprinkle with spices (salt and pepper, or a seasoning mix)
Let chips sit until they are crispy.
