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.

Who could have guessed that potato chips could be made in the microwave? Not me! LOL But, these were great! I used a glass pie dish, and found that it only took about 2:15m -2:30m for mine to be crispy. (1100w microwave) They are best the first day, and are not greasy at all. :) I will be making these again, for an almost guilt free snack! I had to remind myself to take a pic before I ate them all up! Thanks for sharing, happynana! :)

Delicious! Full of potato flavor and not greasy at all. I've made chips in the oven before, but never thought to use the microwave. It only took about 5 minutes for me. I love salt and black pepper on them. This won't be the last time I make these! Thanks for posting. Made for Aus/NZ recipe swap.

Yum! We all enjoyed this chips. I made two batches because Little Miss (DD) ate the first batch before I could even try it. It took me six minutes for the potatoes to crisp, like the pack of chips you find on the supermarket store. I seasoned with freshly cracked sea salt and Cajun seasoning. Thank you so much for posting your recipe happynana
