We don’t often buy chipies in our house, trying to get out of the habit of eating junkie food, and I don’t want the kids eating too much either. I noticed a good friend of my posted on Facebook a few weeks back about making them in the microwave of all things, who would’ve thought?? I thought I’d give it a blast!
Amazingly enough they really do work, and they taste great. No oil or fat required, I just throw a bit of salt on them (optional) as they come out of the microwave.
Here’s the Biz
- Grab some potatoes (baking ones are good) – I used Purple Passion, as suggested by my friend
- Slice very thinly – I used a mandolin
- Take a sheet of baking paper and arrange the pieces of potato on it
- Place in the microwave and cook in 1 minute bursts until crispy
- Season with salt
