A healthier and simpler alternative to homemade French fries or chips, and the perfect side when there's a chicken or roast already in the oven.
- 1 1/4 pounds red-skinned potatoes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Place a rimmed baking sheet in the center rack of the oven and preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Thinly slice the potatoes about 1/8-inch thick and toss with the oil, salt and pepper. Carefully spread the slices on the hot baking sheet in a single layer and roast until golden and crispy, turning with a metal spatula occasionally and spreading them out to cook evenly, 30 to 35 minutes.
