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 !



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



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 !
