You don't need a deep fryer to make crispy potato chips. We toss thinly sliced potatoes with just a touch of olive oil, pop them in the microwave and voilà! Crispy, crunchy homemade potato chips with 8 grams less fat per serving than regular chips.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Amazing! I made them for the first time today, I had to use virgin olive oil because I had no spray on, took a little longer but the crunch was still there. So much cheaper than buying chips and better than waiting an hour for them to...

Crispier chip tip

I found a way to increase the crispiness. Before you put the finely sliced potato rounds in a bowl for the olive oil coating, place the slices between two paper towels and push down. Eliminating wetness leads to a crispier chip.
I used very high quality olive oil from a specialty store. It worked well .

quick way to make a small amount of healthy chips

6 HOURS FOR A BAG OF CHIPS

THEY TASTE GOOD BUT TAKE ABOUT 6 MINUTES PER BATCH AND YOU CAN ONLY MAKE 10-20 CHIPS PER BATCH IN A SINGLE LATER. YOU DO THE MATH. BETTER OFF BAKING THEM.

These took me 45 mins to make

These took me 45 mins to make 200 grams of chips, which is what's in a large bag of Lays. That actually makes more chips than you'd find in Lays because of the fat weight in the Lays. It is a time commitment, but I do it while I'm doing other things in the kitchen. And I usually only make 80 grams at a time (300 grams raw potatoes, 18 minutes), which is plenty for 2 people. These are worth it for the health factor and use less energy and time than baking them. Also, they taste fantastic! Great recipe.
