Grilled Potato Chips

"I was looking for something different to do on the grill and these fit the bill. We like them with burgers! Note: they don't work as well on charcoal or open flame as they do on the gas grill."

Ready In:


  • 1 lb potato, cut into 1/16 th inch slices on the diagonal (I use russets or long whites for less water content)
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 12 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 12 teaspoon coarse salt


  • Just cover potatoes with water in a dutch oven.
  • Boil then cook for 2-3 minutes til tender crisp.
  • Drain.
  • Put in single layer on paper towels.
  • Brush both sides with oil then sprinkle with thyme and salt.
  • Sometimes if I'm in a hurry I will just dump it all in a ziploc bag and shake, but you will need a little more oil to coat the potatoes this way.
  • Preheat gas grill and reduce to medium high.
  • Place slices on the grill rack directly over heat, for easier handling I use a perforated grill pan like those for shrimp, etc.
  • Cover grill and cook for 15-20 minutes until browned, turning occasionally.
  • Remove from grill and let stand on paper towel lined baking sheets for 8-10 minutes.
  • The will crisp as they stand.

    For a different flavour, try seasoning with 1 tsp chili powder instead of thyme :)

    The chips were good but I had some difficulty getting an even degree of browning. This was probably due to factors other than the recipe. I'll keep trying. Thanks for the recipe.

    These worked amazingly well. Never would have thought you could make chips on the grill, but you can. I LOVED the thyme seasoning. I, too, used the mandoline and a grill pan. I let the potatoes thoroughly dry after boiling and before grilling. Fifteen minutes was just right on my grill.

    this is a good bbq side dish. i sliced my potatoes on the mandoline and did use a grill tray. they are light and crunchy, and make a great snack too. i seasoned them with pepper, salt, and chili powder, yummy.

<p>Before I get to the details let me tell you how I rate recipes.....and tell you how I feel about others ratings! <br /> <br />5 STARS....This recipe was excellant, we liked it very much, the directions were very clear and if I made any minor substitutions I noted it. It would most likely be made again, many times! <br /> <br />4 STARS....This recipe was good, we liked it but I made changes either in taste or it was not clear in something, but I would consider making it again. <br /> <br />3 STARS....This recipe was not something that got approval from the majority. Either it just didnt work in preparation, directions, or taste. I will tell you why and would not make it again unless I altered it much! <br /> <br />2, 1 STARS.....I DO NOT give these as I feel they are NOT worthy....especially if the recipe previously had good reviews and by my giving a low one would jeopardize the ratings. I would appreciate this reciprocated with reviews to my recipes. <br /> <br />0 STARS....COMMENTS I will leave no stars and comments on something that did not work out for me and I will be honest and tell you why. <br /> <br />I DETEST IT WHEN PEOPLE CHANGE YOUR RECIPE OR DONT EVEN MAKE IT THEN LEAVE YOU LOW REVIEWS. PEOPLE WHO DO THAT ARE JUST BEING VINDICTIVE OR JUST PLAIN STUPIDLY CRUEL. Examples of some I've gotten would be: 1 star...This doesnt sound like something we would like 2 stars...too sweet for me, (this was on a all 5 star recipe). <br /> <br /> <br />Now for the details: <br />I was born, raised and still live in the same midwestern town where comfort food is what we thrive on, however my dream is to retire to the northwoods of Wisconsin.. (the sooner the better IMHO)! <br /> <br />I relish a recipe that is simple, quick and tastes great as I am a divorced mom to 4 very busy, active young adults (27, 25, 20 year old daughters and a 21 year old son.) Cooking time is at a premium as everyone is so busy, I never usually know who will be at my house for supper! I also try to find things that will reheat well. <br /> <br />I have worked for 30 years in the accounting field and presently semi retired. It is very nice for a change to not have to deal with the everyday stress of deadlines and office politics! It has been great cooking for pleasure, at my leisure, instead of to feed the troops! <br /> <br />Cooking relaxes me so I do it often and I love to cook for people who appreciate it. It is nothing for me to start a recipe at 10pm right before bedtime, and yes I have cooked all nite. Kind of a marathon!! <br /> <br />Cookbooks are my passion and I can't resist the ones that churches, schools etc. put together and well as the ones in the grocery stores. My collection numbers well over 2000 and where as some people go to bed with a good novel, my nightstand is full of cookbooks! <br /> <br />I love to bake and its nothing for me to make 15-20 different kinds of cookies and candies for the holidays. I guess that it has rubbed off on my oldest daughter who is a culinary school graduate and knee deep in pastry classes, hoping to become a pastry chef! <br /> <br />In March of 2002 I had gastric bypass, weight loss surgery and I have lost 125 pounds FOREVER, so now when I do cook it IS for everyone else to enjoy. <br /> <br />I love Zaar and all the friends I have made here, this sight is so addictive but yet so much fun! And the recipes aren't bad either..LOL! I know that in the years since Ive been a permanent fixture of this site I have acquired many great recipes and tons of cooks that I am proud to call my friends! I have also tried many foods that years ago I would never have even imagined.</p>
