These potato chips are very easy to make in the microwave. Also, they are healthier for you since they are not cooked in any oils. They can be made plain or with your choice of herbs and spices. They need to be sliced fairly thin to get crisp, but not paper thin. The original recipe called for a covered microwave bacon rack, but I found that putting them between two plates worked great. You may need to spray the plates with a little nonstick vegetable oil spray before the first batch to keep them from sticking.
4 medium potatoes
Your choice of spices or herbs
1. If the potatoes are old, peel them before slicing. If the potatoes are new or have good skins, do not peel, just scrub well.
2. Slice potatoes 1/16 inch (1.5 mm) in thickness, slicing across the potato. Sprinkle with your choice of spices or herbs, if desired.
3. If you have a microwave bacon tray, place the sliced potatoes flat on the tray in a single layer. Cover with a microwavable, round, heavy plastic cover. If you do not have a bacon tray, place potatoes between two microwave-safe plates.
4. Microwave on high (full power) for 7 to 8 minutes. Cooking time could vary slightly, depending on the wattage of your microwave. You do not have to turn the sliced potatoes over. Plates will be hot by the time potatoes are done. Continue to microwave the remainder of sliced potatoes as directed above.
