Baked Sweet-Potato Chips


A mandoline or a hand-held slicer will quickly turn out thin, even slices of sweet potato, although a sharp knife and a steady hand will also work fine.

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed and sliced 1/8 inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt, preferably sea salt
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees, with racks in center and lower positions. Divide sweet potatoes between 2 rimmed baking sheets. Drizzle with oil, toss, and spread them in a single layer on sheets. Bake, flipping once, until centers are soft and edges are crisp, 22 to 25 minutes. Sprinkle with salt, and serve with lime wedges.

    Cook the chips a little longer than the time stated (be sure to keep an eye on them as to not burn them) and turning more than once to insure a dryer and crisp chip. Then remove as to not burn them and place on a wire rack to cool and crisp a little more. I like to season them with a little cinnamon and cayenne.

    Not crispy but they tasted good. I baked them for 11 mins on one side, 8 mins on the other. Watch closely, they burn easily.

    I've read where people blanch the sweet potatoes to help get them crispy ( You also might try cutting them with a mandolin to get them a bit more thin. I LOVE sweet potatoes

    I found these to be rather delicious - I love sweet potatoes in any form! Mine didn't get particularly crisp, but I've stopped expecting that of sweet potatoes. They were a wonderful accompaniment to a turkey burger!
