How To Make Potato Chips In The Microwave

1 russet potato
Non stick spray
Salt and Pepper

Mandolin Slicer
Parchment paper or glass plate

1. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the inside of your microwave.
2. Carefully slice 1/3 of a potato into paper thin slices using a mandolin. Don't cut any more because the slices will turn an odd color
3. Completely coat the parchment paper with non-stick spray and place the potato slices in a single layer.
4. Spray the potato slices with non stick spray and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper.
5. Turn off the rotating option on your microwave and cook for 4-5 minutes.

Additional Comments:
Cooking times will vary based on the strength and power of your microwave. Some chips may turn very dark brown. Ideally you want them light and golden. Repeat the process until you’ve used your entire potato. Enjoy!

NOTE: I found a mandolin slicer with a handle on Amazon for under $20
