Total time 40 mins
Yield Makes 6 to 8 servings
The secret to crisp sweet potato chips is to fry them in small batches, in peanut oil, at a low temperature. This makes 6 servings when served as a side but will be plenty for 10 appetizer servings.

Ingredients

  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled (about 2 lb.)
  • Peanut oil
  • Kosher salt

How to Make It

  1. Cut sweet potatoes into 1/16-inch-thick slices, using a mandoline. Pour peanut oil to depth of 3 inches into a Dutch oven; heat over medium-high heat to 300°. Fry potato slices, in small batches, stirring often, 4 to 4 1/2 minutes or until crisp. Drain on a wire rack over paper towels. Immediately sprinkle with desired amount of kosher salt. Cool completely, and store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 2 days.
