Did you know that you can make potato chips in the microwave?

Seriously good potato chips.


Sweet Potato Chips

I do now, but up until last week I had never heard of such a thing. These salt and vinegar chips from Bakeaholic Mama  convinced me  I had to try, but really I did not have lofty expectations. Sure the microwave is great for re-heating leftovers, but actual cooking…


5 minute Sweet Potato Chips


But hey, I was up for the experiment, and happen to have a HUGE bag of sweet potatoes in  my pantry.


Guilt Free Sweet Potato Chips


  • 1 sweet potato
  • olive oil for misting
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • slice the potato using a mandolin or a very sharp knife, about 1/8 inch thick
  • lightly mist the slices with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper
  • arrange the slices in a single layer on parchment paper
  • lay the paper on a microwave safe plate
  • cook on high for 2 minutes
  • flip
  • cook on high another two minutes
  • they may need to be flipped once more and cooked for an additional minute {I cooked mine 5 minutes}, but the time will vary depending on the thickness of the slices
  • chips will crisp up as they cool


I was SHOCKED by how good they were. Seriously the BEST sweet potato chips I have ever had. I ate every last one, and you can bet these will be my new go-to snack.
