Recipe for Microwaved Sweet Potato Chips by Sarah Ottino
Yes, I know what you're thinking. Microwaved sweet potato chips?! This must be fake... But it's not!! These turn out super crispy, fresh, and have only 4 ingredients. I love making these chips whenever I have a random sweet potato that I don’t know what to do with.
1 medium sweet potato (try to use a thin one)
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt & pepper (to taste)
Slice the sweet potato by using a mandolin on the thinnest setting.
If you do not have a mandolin, slice them using a knife as thinly as possible. It’s okay if not every piece is the same size.
In a bowl, coat the slices of sweet potato in olive oil. Add salt and pepper to your liking.
Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit on a microwave-safe plate.
Place the sweet potato chips on the paper. Make sure the pieces are not touching.
Microwave for 3-4 minutes until brown.
○ After the first 2 minutes, check after every 30 seconds to make sure they don’t burn.
Take the chips off the parchment paper and lay on a drying rack for 5 minutes.
