I love potato chips! These BBQ baked potato chips are so good and the perfect replacement for the real thing.

Did I mention they are low in points? The only points in this recipe come from the potato. I used a 5 oz. potato. I always weigh potatoes since they are all different sizes. My potato was 4 points. I made 33 “chips” out of my potato.
I counted my whole potato as two servings. 16 chips per serving was enough for me.
It only cost me 2 Freestyle points to have some tasty chips with my sandwich. My daughter was kind enough to eat my second serving. She loved them.
I used this adjustable mandoline to evenly slice my potatoes:Adjustable Mandoline Slicer – 5 Blades – Vegetable Cutter, Peeler, Slicer, Grater & Julienne Slicer
I love it because it is so easy to use. The entire potato is sliced in just seconds.
I also made Ranch Baked Potato Chips that were super yummy! I’m not sure if I like the ranch chips or BBQ chips more. They were both really good.
This recipe is also easy to double (or triple) and save the rest for later. Just store them in an air tight container.
I planned on saving the second serving, but my daughter had other plans. It’s funny because when I made the ranch potato chips my older daughter ended up eating my chips. This time it was my younger daughter.
It’s ok, I’m just happy they both like the food I make!
As far as making the potato chips you simply place them on a baking sheet, spray them with no-stick cooking spray and sprinkle the seasoning on. Flip the potatoes and do the same thing on the other side.
One thing I have noticed about making baked potato chips is the cooking time can definitely vary. I bake the chips for 10 minutes, then flip them and bake for 10 more minutes.
After that I check to see if the chips are crispy. Based on what they look like I add about 2 minutes, making sure to keep an eye on them so they don’t burn. Check out the recipe below!
