How to make potato chips in a microwave

1. Peel and wash the potatoes and cut them on a mandolin into very thin slices (about 1 mm).

2. Cover the empty plate with one layer of plastic foil.
Oil the potato slices on both sides and place them on a prepared plate.

3. Cover the filled plate with another layer of plastic foil.
Pierce the top layer of foil a few times with a sharp knife.

4. Place a plate in the oven and cook the potatoes at maximum power (800kW) for 5 minutes.

5. Carefully unfold the foil and place the chips on the cooling rack to cool down and become crispy.

5. Season homemade potato chips with sea salt or any preferred combination of spices.
I prepared mine with a mixture of dried basil and coarse salt.
