Used coconut oil, a little maple syrup, and a dash/pinch of cayenne. Perfect combination. A REAL treat you don't have to feel guilty about!!!-28 Aug 2015

I used coconut oil and added a touch too much of cayenne pepper but they never got crispy. I went as long as ten minutes in the microwave or more but not crispy. The book club ladies thought they were tasty but I was not pleased with the soggy result.-22 Oct 2015

Addictive!!!! Not sure why some are having so much trouble. If you use a mandolin, slice them fairly thin and cook them long enough, they are PERFECT! So versatile too. I sliced up one medium sweet potato and that made 4 plates worth. The first couple batches were just seasoned with salt. The third batch I added red curry powder and the last batch had cinnamon. All amazing, so much so that I didn't have time to take a pic! In my microwave, 4:30 was a good time. When they're hot, they might be a tiny big soft, but once they cool, they crisp up nicely. Thanks for the great recipe! So much healthier than store bought fried chips!-27 Sep 2016


Crispy Microwave Potato Chips

Potato Chips are one of the world’s most popular snacks. With their salty deliciousness they are what I consider a guilty pleasure. So I thought why not change that up and take away a bit of the guilt? So we are going to make our very own Microwave Potato Chips! Yes, you read that right. And just in case you are wondering, these potato chips come out beautifully crispy and crunchy just like store bought, except ours contain all natural ingredients.

To make Potato Chips, you thinly slice Potatoes with a chopping knife (you can use a serrated knife if that’s the only one you have).

Plunge the thinly sliced potato into an ice bath. This washes away the starch and helps the chips crisp once cooked.

Pat the potato slices dry and lay them in a single layer on a plate lined with parchment paper. Brush both sides of each slice with some olive oil and sprinkle over some salt.

Microwave for a few minutes then flip over and microwave again until crisp and golden.

What did I tell you? The photos don’t lie. Beautifully cooked, crunchy Potato Chips made in the Microwave. Now just make them yourselves and spread the word.


How To Make Potato Chips In The Microwave


A few years ago a friend of mine taught me how to make potato chips in a microwave. I thought she was kidding because I couldn’t imagine a microwave producing crispy chips. After cooking them for 5 minutes they were done, crispy, and wonderful!

Ideally, a mandoline works best to cut the potatoes paper thin. If you don’t have one you can use a vegetable peeler or slice the potato very thinly with a knife. Cooking one batch doesn’t yield that many chips, but its a great snack-sized amount for 1 person. If you’re up for a fun project and have a potato lying around, why not make some homemade potato chips? Or if you’re like me and need to pack a snack for your kids lunch, voila! <– You’re the hero of the day! Enjoy!


  • 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!

**WARNING** Some people have had their microwaves short cut, plates shatter, and potatoes go up in flames. I’ve never had this experience before, however, please use caution and make sure you use microwavable plates.

**UPDATE** I’ve made several batches of this over the weekend. If you don’t have parchment paper you can easily use a glass plate. If you don’t have non-stick spray you can brush the parchment paper or glass plate with vegetable oil.. lay the potatoes down, and give the potatoes a light brush over again with oil. Also, the less crowded your plate and parchment paper is, the less problem you will have with the outside chips not cooking as quick as the ones in the middle.


Sweet Potato Crisps

"Sweet Potato Crisps - This easy and delicious recipe makes a great healthy snack for when you’re on the go and is a fantastic alternative to crisps. For this recipe to work, the slices of potato need to be really thin so it’s best to use a mandolin – but if you don’t have one then a sharp knife will work. This recipe is suitable for people who are on specifics diets such as gluten free and vegan."

I have a tote full of sweet potatoes and I need some recipes. I happened upon this one and guess what I will be making on tomorrow! Not really sure the reason for the vinegar, but I will make the recipe as instructed and be surprised or not. Thanks for the recipe.

I love sweet potatoes almost as much as French fries. I suppose this recipe could be made with either of the root vegetables. Really interested in the reason for the vinegar though.

I love sweet potato chips, especially homemade ones! But, I don't have a mandolin so it tends to be really difficult to cut them to the right thickness. I'm also curious why you are using apple cider vinegar in this recipe? Does anyone know what effect this would have on the chips?

Microwaved sweet potatoes have tender flesh and soft skins. If you want the crisp skin of an oven-baked sweet potato, slide the cooked potatoes under the broiler until the skin is dry and crisp.

Microwaved sweet potatoes are a great food to meal prep — they can be topped with apples and nut butter for breakfast, pureéd into soup, or stuffed with spicy Buffalo chicken for a super-fast dinner. To store them, place them in an airtight container for up to 3 days. To reheat them, place them directly on the oven rack in a 325°F oven until warmed through, or microwave until warm.


5-Minute Fat-Free Potato Microwave Potato Chips

These chips are great as a side, but if you want to feel naughty and go for the full-on “sports bar” effect, cover these bad boys with some vegetarian chili and my Game Day Cheese Dip. Oh…my…WORD!

If you try these, let me know! Leave a comment take a picture then post it on Instagram and tag the photo #shaneandsimple because I want to see your creation. Peace and feast!


In Good Flavor

There are benefits that come with making your own potato chips, one of which is you get to control exactly what goes into it. Unlike many store bought chips, there are only three ingredients involved: potato, oil, and salt. That's it! And no preservatives!

You have complete control—from the kind of oil to the amount of salt. In fact, you can omit oil altogether for really light and healthy snacking. As for me, I'm an olive oil kind of girl.

One other benefit is that you determine the quantity of chips to make—SOOOOO important! If you're like me, and I'm thinking many of you are, the amount I eat is directly proportional to the amount available. Am I right? Having a huge bag of chips in the house is a very dangerous thing for a girl's (and guy's) waistline. Out of site is NOT out of mind. If it's in the pantry, I will hunt it down! So, when I make only what I need at the moment, the problem is eliminated!

  • Peeling potato is optional. I think it looks prettier with the skin on.
  • Potato slices can be cooked on top of a paper towel lined plate or a greased plate. I prefer paper towels, because the potatoes tend to slide around on greased plate.
  • Use sea salt sparingly at first. Taste test the first batch and adjust salt to your preference on the next batch.
  • If the chips lose their crispness during storage, microwave15-20 seconds (and allowing to cool 1 minute) to restore crispness.
  • To customize flavor, sprinkle potato slices with seasoning of choice after they are brushed with oil.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Wash and dry potato. Peel skin, if desired. Using a mandoline or a sharp knife, cut into 1/8" to 1/16" inch slices.

Rinse the slices under cold water until the water runs clear to remove excess starch. Or soak in a bowl with plenty of water for 15 minutes, then drain and rinse.

Line a microwave oven proof plate with a few layers of paper towels. Remove a small handful of potato slice from the bowl. Pat dry on a clean kitchen towel. Brush the top with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt. Flip over. Oil and salt the second side.

Arrange slices in a single layer on the plate and without touching each other. Microwave at full power for 3 minutes. Potato slices will begin to brown slightly. Turn slices over. Microwave an additional 1-2 minutes at full power or 2-3 minutes at 50% power. The edges will curl. Remove chips that crisp and turn light brown early. Continue cooking the remainder until they are done. Place chips on paper towel line surface to cool.

Repeat cooking the remaining potato slices. Store in an airtight container.

Makes 2 servings.


*Note:

1) Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of your potato slices and the strength of your microwave. Keep on eye on the slices while they cook as cooking time may be faster or slower than the suggested timeframe. Adjust cooking time accordingly, if needed.


Easy, homemade microwave sweet potato chips

That’s exactly what I thought when I first heard of this! I have been ignoring the concept, until I started intensely craving sweet potato chips today and decided to do something about it.

Usually I make sweet potato fries, in the oven. They are delicious, but always lack the ‘crunch’ I crave.

I was so skeptical of using the microwave, as I’m not a huge microwave user in general, but the more I thought about it, the more it started to make sense.

Have you ever tried to microwave something soft and moist, like bread, cake or cookies? And you know how hard and dried out they get if they stay in there even a few seconds too long?

Well, use that drying-out to your advantage for some homemade chips!

A light toss in some oil & spices and thin slices of sweet potatoes turn into crunchy, golden chips in just minutes!

Question: Microwave Crisp Maker?

Does anyone in England know where I can buy a microwave crisp maker? I've tried ebay (ten pounds! I don't think so!), tried Lakeland and Kleeneeze.

Answers

You don't need a crisp maker. Go to recipezaar.com and put "Uncle Bill's Microwave Potato Chip Recipe # 47195" into the search area at the top of the page and directions will come up for making delicious fat-free chips.
Hope this will be a help.

If you don't want to spend the money for a microwave crisp maker, how about just making them in the oven on baking sheets .

It would actually take much less time for an abundance of crisps and be as fat free as the microwave recipes .

Thankyou guys, why didn't I think of oven baked! sometimes it takes someone else to think of the simple things. lol
