When Nikki told us that you could do this simple thing and have real potato chip taste from the microwave I just couldn't believe it.  So she cut one up and nuked it for us.  Yummm.

You need:

Microwave potato chips

If you have a really sharp knife and a steady hand you don't need the mandolin, but I was going for uniform thickness and my pampered chef mandolin did the trick.  I'm just saying it made it easy for me, but certainly not necessary to have a mandolin.

First you tear off a piece of parchment paper the size of your microwave floor.  Just go ahead and slice onto the paper if you are using a mandolin.  If you are using a knife, use a cutting board.

Second, you lay the potato slices onto the parchment paper.

Three:  you cover the potato slices with another piece of parchment paper.

4th... insert into the microwave for 7-9 minutes.  Keep an eye on them, when they turn brown they are done.  

As a side note, I put kosher salt on my slices after they had been cooking for 4 minutes, recovered and cooked for another three minutes and they were done.  

these babies are much better than the fried in grease brand.  you can season them all different ways too!
