Most kids love chips, but parents want a healthier snack for their families. Chef Brian shows viewers how to have chips -- without the guilt.

The Pampered Chef's new microwave chip maker lets you make a healthier, homemade version of potato chips, in a reasonable portion size.

    Chef's Tips
  • For the crunchiest results, we recommend using Setting 1, the thinnest option, on the Simple Slicer.
  • You can season the homemade snack with your favorite rubs. Brian will use Smoky Barbeque Rub in the segment.
  • You can also use the chip maker to make apple, tortilla and pita chips.
  • All chips are delicious with dips. If you want to make a dip, mix with a few tablespoons of your favorite rub/seasoning, with 1/2 low fat mayo, 1/2 low fat sour cream. It's as easy as that.
    Crispy and Healthy Potato Chips
  • Using a Simple Slicer, grab a small to medium potato (Brian is using a Russet potato - but Yukon, sweet potato, even yucca make great chips as well), and begin slicing potato. Place them on a paper towel in a single layer. Sprinkle each slice with salt or desired rub. Once seasoned, arrange the slices on a single layer on The Pampered Chef's MakerMicrowave Chip Maker. Place chip maker in center of microwave on the turntable, and microwave for designated time, based on chip of choice.
