Home-made oven-baked potato chipsCourse: SnacksCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
10.5 oz (300 g) potato
2 pinches salt
1 ½ cup water
2 tablespoons olive oil*
Spices to taste (garlic powder, paprika powder, and cajun seasoning are great options to start with, but don’t be shy to experiment!)
- Peel 10.5 oz (300 g) potato. Using a vegetable peeler or metal cheese slicer, cut the potato into slices with 2-3 mm thickness.
- Take a big bowl and put the sliced potato into the bowl. Pour 1 ½ cold water and let it sit for 5 mins.
- Drain the potato slices, place them on a towel, and pat dry.
- Put the dry potato back into the bowl. Add 2 tbsps olive oil, 2 pinches of salt, and season to taste. Mix well.
- Preheat the oven to 375 ˚F (190 ˚C).
- Cover the baking sheet with parchment paper and lay out the potato slices the way they don’t overlap each other. Cover the slices with another parchment paper sheet.
- Bake the chips for 12-15 mins. At this stage, the slices are still soft but already browned.
- Turn off the oven and let the chips sit there for additional 10 mins. After this procedure, the chips will become dry and crunchy.
- *You can experiment with this part – for some people, 1 tablespoon of olive oil is enough. But if you lower the oil portion in the recipe, the chips may come out not so browned.
