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.

  • servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds plantains or green bananas, scored, peeled, and thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

Cook's Note

To store, place cooled chips in an airtight container, up to 2 days.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    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.

    So simple even a one armed (broke the other one roller skating) Minnesota country cook could whip them together in no time at all. Got a thumbs up from the wife who said she didn't like plantains. Go figure..
