Love potato chips? Love spicy?
Here, at Yum Maker, potato chips are at the top of our Yum list! We’re on a mission to try just about every type and flavored potato chip out there. So, of course we had to mention these…
Baked Sriracha Potato Chips!
Huge thumbs up to oh my veggies for sharing their recipe for these baked potato chips. We do like the sriracha potato chips sold in the grocery store, but we’re always ready to try a homemade recipe…especially if it’s easy. This recipe is most definitely easy. It has few ingredients, too. You may actually have these ingredients in your kitchen already. If so, awesome.
Preparation is simple and you have a choice of prep time. For a faster prep, then you’ll slice, flavor and bake. But, if you don’t mind waiting to bake and prefer a crispier chip, then Oh my veggies suggests to soak the potato slices in a bowl with ice cold water for 1-2 hours. Then, drain and rinse the potato slices. Line them on paper towels and dry thoroughly.
We also have learned about soaking potatoes for a crispier result. Potatoes are naturally moist as they contain a lot of water. Starch actually holds in that moisture. Removing some starch from the potatoes, by soaking in water, leaves the potatoes with less moisture and when cooked…a crispier potato. You can drain and refresh your water anytime while the potatoes are soaking. Just make sure to dry them well before baking.
*Few more notes about crispy chips: The thinner the potato slices are…the crispier they will be. Use parchment paper, as it allows for water to penetrate through while baking. Place on bottom oven rack, pan heats up more (potatoes brown better) and water evaporates better.
- cooking spray or oil mister
- 1 Tbsp. peanut oil (or canola or vegetable oil)
- 1 tsp. sriracha sauce
- 1 large Russet potato, washed and cut into 1/8-inch slices
- salt to taste
- Preheat oven, 400 degrees F. Spray or mist baking sheet pan with oil.
- Line potato slices onto baking sheets.
- Whisk peanut oil and sriracha sauce in a small bowl. (Keep whisking until well combined.)
- Brush potato slices with sriracha oil mixture and sprinkle with salt.
- Bake 10-20 minutes, until edges turn brown. *(Make sure to watch them closely (every few minutes) as after 10 minutes, they tend to go from perfectly done to quickly burned. Baked potato chips do have some soft parts when done.)
YUM! These baked chips are a great addition to our fave chip list.
