If I say, that there is a way to make this addictive snack at home and you get them as crispy and rustic as the store one. Moreover, this option is healthier. Will you try making potato chips at home? If the answer is still no, I have one more killer argument – the recipe is as easy as it can get.

You simply slice potatoes, add your favorite seasoning and bake chips in the oven. Mine top choice would be paprika; ginger and garlic powders; love the aroma of added dry dill and you cannot go wrong with the classic pairing salt/vinegar. In just 10 minutes, you will get a perfect snack without any artificial additives and preservatives.

There are three main tricks, which I singled out for myself, that will help you to make perfect homemade potato chips. The first one is making thin slices. If you have a mandolin slicer then you are the lucky one, in other cases, a simple sharp knife will do the trick. The other one is to have the oven preheated at 350ºF and not higher, as a chance to burn potato gets higher with the temperature. Besides, you even can cover potato slices with parchment paper to prevent burning (at my old apartment I had an oven that heated up unevenly).

Ingredients for Crispy Baked Potato Chips:

Homemade potato chips ingredients

  • 3 medium potatoes;
  • ½ tsp. paprika;
  • 1½ tbsps. olive oil;
  • Salt to your taste.

How to make potato chips in the oven:

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF/180°C.
  • Peel potatoes and thoroughly wash them under cold running water. Using a sharp knife or a mandolin thinly slice potatoes (even a peeler can be used for this purpose).

Cut potatoes into thin slices

  • Put potato slices into a deep bowl and cover with cold water. In such a way, we will get rid of some starch that can keep chips from getting crispy. On the other hand, you can use young potatoes for making chips at home, as their starch level is lower. Pat potatoes with paper towels or flat kitchen towels (without any pile) until slices are dry.

Let slices sit in water for a minute

  • Combine dried potato slice with seasoning. I have added only salt and paprika; I did not want any spicy flavor in the end. Besides, try keeping minimal with salt, as it is very easy to oversalt chips.

Add seasoning

  • Pour oil into the bowl and nicely mix it by stirring potato slices so that they will be evenly covered in seasoning and oil.

Pour olive oil

  • Now line a baking tray with parchment paper and place slices so that they do not touch each other. To prevent burning chips I cover them with an additional layer of parchment paper. Put the tray into the oven and bake potato chips for 10 minutes until golden and crispy.

Place slices in one layer on the baking tray

  • Before serving let potato chips cool down. Bon appetite!
