Chinese Five-Spice Sweet Potato Chips
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted a sweet potato chips recipe for grease-free chips with rich flavor. The best tool for cutting the potatoes for our sweet potato chips recipe proved to be a mandoline, which quickly cut the potatoes into perfect 1/16-inch-thick slices. An instant-read thermometer helped us keep the oil at the optimum frying temperature. We favored peanut oil because of its high smoke point and mild but toasty flavor, with vegetable oil coming in a close second.
