4 Minute Microwave Potato Chips Recipe

Olive oil
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.




Who knew! These look awesome! Definitely going to give them a try this weekend! Oh the flavour possibilities are endless!!



Well, my potato chips didn’t come out anything like your potato chips 🙁 Nice idea while it lasted though…


I’ve tried it out, and yes it does. What worked for me was to sprinkle some bread crumbs over it to help with the crispiness. Without it mine were just soft and mushy (which isn’t so bad).
