“We tried these tonight and they made a delicious treat. Be sure to let them cool all the way. I did minor change for our tastes The recipe is from and was submitted by Jessica.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (more may be used)
  • 1 potato, sliced paper thin (peel optional)
  • 12 teaspoon sea salt, to taste
  • spices, of your choice (I used Cajun seasoning but think dried dill weed would be great too.)


  1. Pour oil into a plastic bag. Add potato slices and shake to coat.
  2. Coat a large diner plate lightly with oil or cooking spray. I used a 10 inch casserole dish, using cooking spray.
  3. Arrange potato slices in a single layer on the dish.
  4. Cook in microwave 3-6 minutes, or until lightly browned (if not browned, they will not become crisp). Times will vary on the power of your microwave. Mine took 6 minutes.
  5. Remove chips for plate/dish and sprinkle with salt, and other seasonings, if desired.
  6. Let cool.
  7. Repeat the process with remaining slices. You will not need to keep oiling the plate/dish.
