Baked Plantain Chips
These plantain chips make a great snack or appetizer for a Cuban-themed meal. If you are unable to find green (unripe) plantains, use very green bananas instead.
- 2 pounds plantains or green bananas, scored, peeled, and thinly sliced on the diagonal
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Divide plantains between two rimmed baking sheets. Toss with oil, then arrange in a single layer on sheets. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until golden and crisp, 30 to 35 minutes, rotating sheets and flipping plantains halfway through. Drain plantains on paper towels.
