CHEF JEFF -- ONE BYTE AT A TIME: Oven-Fried Potato Chips

If you're taking a road trip, snacks are essential.

Oven-Fried Potato Chips

6 medium potatoes, sliced 1/8,-inch thick (note)

¼ cup vegetable oil

Sea salt


Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Lightly brush the potatoes with vegetable oil and lay out on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, too, if you'd like (or you may want to add your own touch here -- like chipotle powder).

Bake in oven. When you see the edges start to brown, after about 10 minutes, flip them over and bake for another 10. Watch them carefully so they don't burn.

Note: Slice the potatoes with a knife or a mandolin.

Yield: Serves 4.
