Thin Crispy Potato Chips Ingredients

The secret to thin crispy potato chips is to slice them with a Mandoline. This will give you the best possible result.

Let’s check out what else you are going to need.

  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced paper-thin
  • 3 tablespoons salt
  • 1-quart oil for deep frying

Here’s a photo from Allrecipes member Curlylocks and you can see how well they turned out. Here’s what another member says.

“I have tried these a couple of times and the kids love them. What I really suggest is that you slice the potatoes thin and then soak in HOT water for 20 minutes.

This removes quite a bit of starch. Then dry well before frying. Tonight my wife dug some old potatoes out that had actually gotten eyes sprouting on them. They turned out better than fresh potatoes.

The starch level was much lower and they turned out golden brown and crispy!”

– C. Matlock, Allrecipes Member

 

The creator behind the recipe used Olive Oil as there is less Trans Fats. You can also use safflower, corn, peanut and vegetable oil too.

Here’s another suggestion from Chicken Livers of The Allrecipes Site.

“I love this recipe because it’s basic enough to add to. I felt comfortable making changes to suit my taste.

For example, I soaked the potatoes overnight in a solution half vinegar/water (I love vinegar chips).

I also made a batch with sweet potatoes following the recipe, including salt soak, but then finishing with a cinnamon-sugar shake. Enjoyable and easy. Highly recommended.”
