If you have a weakness for potato chips but can’t stomach the fake ingredients in store-bought brands, do we have a tip for you! Here’s what to do…

You can make potato chips in your microwave. First, thinly slice a baking potato (a mandoline does a good job), and toss lightly with oil (any oil is fine, even olive oil). Lightly coat a microwavable plate with cooking spray, and lay the slices in one layer. Nuke for four minutes (you might need to experiment with the timing…you don’t want the slices too brown), then turn the chips and microwave for two minutes more. The chips will crisp up as they sit for just a minute or two—if you can wait that long!
