  1. Scrub the potatoes, then slice them paper thin. Place a sheet of parchment paper over the bottom of your microwave oven. Place the potato slices in a single layer on top of the paper. Season with salt . Cover the potatoes with a second sheet of parchment paper.
  2. Cook on high power for 8 minutes, or until potato slices are browned and crisp, testing and adjusting the time as necessary since all microwaves cook differently. Remove potato chips from the microwave and cool on a rack. Repeat these steps to cook the remaining potato slices.

Tastes like a baked potato chip. Be sure to use a serated knife and cut as thin as possible, almost transparent. Spray a plate with cooking spray and lay the chips hanging over the edge. This...

These turned out terribly- They stuck to the parchment paper and tasted aweful. Id recommend to use a tsp of oil- but, that recipe already exhists so this one would be obsolete. Well- No point r...

This was ok....I think what bothered me was that I could not put large batches in the micowave. It took me like an hour to make this bc i had to oil the potatos and make sure the color was golde...

Finding myself with one, lonely potato, this provided our evening's recreation (we're easily amused). We cooked these on parchment paper sprayed lightly with Pam. Watch carefully so they don't...
