It's easy to make your own healthy, fat-free potato chips in the microwave. They're crispy, delicious, and inexpensive.
3 medium russet potatoes, scrubbed, skin on, sliced into paper thin rounds 1mm to 1.5mm thick (mandoline slicer recommended)
salt & pepper to taste* (if desired)
Arrange potato slices in single layer on paper towel; cover with another paper towel; press out liquid; surface should appear dry. Sprinkle on desired seasonings. Arrange slices in single layer on microwave potato chip tray; or, on parchment paper that is sprayed with cooking oil on top of microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high until partially browned. The exact cooking time will vary, depending on the size and power of your microwave. An 1100-watt microwave takes approx. 3-4 min. to cook a tray. Transfer cooked chips to wire rack to cool and crisp. Store in air-tight container.
*ADDITIONAL SEASONINGS may be added before the chips are cooked: --garlic salt or powder --parmesan cheese --dry ranch dressing mix --chili powder, cayenne, or taco seasoning --curry powder --dried herbs: basil, oregano, dill, rosemary, etc. --get creative with your own flavor combos
