La Cucina di Kat: Crunchy Homemade Potato Chips in the Microwave!
If I didn't try this myself, I would have never believed it was possible. A friend was telling me about this the other day and I'm like...ahhh, I don't know - how does something get crisp and brown in the Microwave? Usually the only thing I use the Microwave for is to heat up cold coffee, the odd left-over and microwave popcorn.
In a Ziplock bag, place about a tablespoon of Oil. I used Olive oil but any oil will suffice. Add the sliced potatoes and shake them around so that they are coated with the oil.
Place the potatoes into the Microwave. Set it for 4 minutes and then just keep an eye on it. If after 4 minutes they're not brown...add another minute and keep watching for them to brown. Keep adding time until you see them getting crispy. When they start to brown they can easily burn, so stop the microwave immediately. When you figure out how long your microwave takes, the second batch is much easier.
Take them out of the microwave and sprinkle with coarse salt! Now, this is where it can get really interesting - experiment with your favorite spice blends such as cayenne, garlic salt, etc..
