Quick and Easy Potato Chips

I love chips and, currently being pregnant, am craving chips and French fries often. This recipe satisfies my cravings perfectly in a healthy way.

4 Red, purple, or golden potatoes
1 tbls olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
Parchment Paper

1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the olive oil and salt.
2. Thinly slice the potatoes and toss in the mixture.
3. Transfer the slices to a plate covered in parchment paper.
4. Microwave about 4 minutes, or until the potatoes are starting to golden.

Note: Parchment paper is a must. If you are in a pinch, wax paper can be used but will leave a residue on your plate and the potatoes may stick. Never use paper towels because the potatoes will definitely stick and then you will have little bits if paper towel stuck to your chips (trust me, I know from experience!).
