Baked Mandarin Orange Sweet Potato Chips

June 13, 2012

 

Our Lucero crowd had a potluck and everyone made  delicious  dishes;
many incorporated Lucero’s healthy  Extra Virgin Olive Oils. These chips
were a huge hit !

 

Ingredients

Makes about 6 cups

 

4 medium sweet potatoes or yams

8 Tbsp. Lucero Mandarin Orange Olive Oil

3 tsp. orange zest

4 tsp. thyme (dried)

salt & pepper to taste

 

Dirrections

Preheat oven to 325 F and place rack in the middle.

 

1-  Scrub sweet potatoes/yams and then slice them into very

thin pieces using a mandolin.

 

2-   Mix together Mandarin Orange Olive Oil and

orange zest.

 

3-  Brush 2 baking sheets with the some of the oil mixture and

arrange one layer of sweet potatoes.

 

4-  Brush the tops of the sweet potatoes with oil mixture;

sprinkle with thyme, salt, and pepper to taste.

 

5-  Place in the oven and bake for about until golden brown and

centers are dry to the touch, about 20 minutes.

 

6-  Place baking sheet on a wire rack and allow to cool 3 mins.

After cooling carefully transfer chips to a serving dish and enjoy!

 

7-  Repeat process until you run out of slices of sweet potato.

 

 

These little chips are light and a great alternative to regular fried

potato chips, but be warned they may be habit forming. The

staff was craving more as soon as we ran out. I guess I know what

I'll be bringing to the next company potluck !
