Say goodbye to those horrid, soggy, burnt, and time consuming oven baked potato chips.
For years I made healthy “potato chips” in the oven with limited success.
However, my potato chip life changed once I started using my microwave. Yes, I know, it’s hard to believe the microwave could make such a drastic change cooking potato chips, but it makes a lot of sense. Microwaves work by heating the water molecules up in food (thus the water evaporates), which means sliced potatoes cook perfectly; they’re unburnt, and crunchy.
Sometimes the best things are the simple things, and that’s certainly true with these 6 minute homemade potato chips!
Note: Your cook-time might take a few minutes longer depending on the strength of your microwave, but even with the weakest of microwaves they’ll only take 10/12 minutes.

3 Weight Watcher PointsPlus
- Potatoes (1 large potato 148g)
- Baking spray
- Salt (to taste)
- Cut potatoes into thin slices (the width of the quarter)
- Spray a microwave safe plate with non-stick cooking spray (my favorite is buttered flavored)
- Add potato slices to plate, spray potatoes, and cover them in salt
- Microwave for 3 minutes (***1250 WATT MICROWAVED USED) may take longer if yours isn't as powerful
- Flip and microwave another 3 minutes
- They should be crunchy at this point, but if you let them cool they'll get even crunchier
- If they are not atleast crunchy microwave 1 minute at a time until they get there...and let stand.
