Ingredients
  • Potato
  • Water
  • Salt
Instructions
  1. Slice one small potato very thinly. You do not need to peel the potato first, although you can. Use a mandoline to get very thin, evenly-sliced potatoes. You can also use a sharp knife, it will just take some patience and a little more time.
  2. As you slice the potatoes, put them directly into a large bowl of water. Once the entire potato is sliced, drain off the water, refill the bowl with water and let the potatoes soak for about 5 minutes. Keep the potatoes in the water until it’s time to cook them.
  3. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the size of the glass tray in your microwave. Place the parchment paper directly on the glass tray.
  4. Place a few paper towels flat on your counter. Remove some of the potatoes from the water, place on the paper towels, and dab dry with another paper towel.
  5. Spread potato slices evenly on the lined microwave dish, so that they are not touching. Sprinkle evenly with some salt.
  6. Cook for 2 minutes on high. Flip potatoes, sprinkle second side with a little more salt, then cook for 2-3 more minutes. Watch the chips and remove them from the microwave as they turn a light golden brown. (Some chips will be taken out sooner than others.)
  7. Repeat the drying and cooking process until you’ve used your entire potato, probably about 3 batches total. You can reuse the parchment paper for each batch. If the paper starts to curl, just flip it over between batches.
