  • Total Time: 13 min
  • Yield: 1 1x


  • 1 russet potato
  • 2 tablespoons Vegetable or Olive Oil
  • Sea salt to taste


  1. Scrub and slice russet potato, ensuring that slices are consistent thickness. We recommend cutting no larger than ⅛ inch thick per slice.
  2. With a paper towl, dab all moisture off the slices of potato, top and bottom.
  3. Using a medium mixing bowl, add potato slices and coat with oil.
  4. Spray a microwave safe plate lightly with cooking spray.
  5. Place chips on plate in even layer, avoid overlapping.
  6. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  7. Microwave 6-8 minutes on high, or until the potato chips begin to brown. Chips can be flipped half way through cooking to ensure crispness.
  8. Once cooked, remove from the microwaveable plate and let cool on non-stick surface. Repeat until all chips are cooked (using any oil that may be left in bowl.)


Eat immediately. We do not recommending storing for later.
