We had the munchies: Potato Chips

Today, I wantedΒ needed, to satisfy my potato chip cravings. I’ve never made them before but after some Googling and a lot of imagining I decided: YES. I can cook this. I used a convection oven for this recipe but a conventional oven will do as well.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 kg potato
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • seasoning: used Pangasinan rock salt and some chili powder

Step 1: Wash and cut potatoes into thin chips.

Initially, I wanted to use my mom’s brand spanking food processor:

but I was too lazy to make sense of a new “gadget” and I was really, really in a hurry to get my chips! Used this instead:

An old food processor that my mom has been using forever (I think it is almost as old as I am…)

Success!

Step 2: Grease pan and place slices on baking pan. Cook for 15 mins at 200 degrees Farenheit (or 15 mins 220 degrees in a regular oven, I think…)

Step 3: Season & enjoy! πŸ™‚

Recipe: Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie

Here’s a super easy and filling recipe.

You’ll need:

1/2 cup baking mix

2 eggs

1/4 cup water

1 teaspoon tarragon

1 teaspoon thyme

1 cup grated cheese

1 cup shredded chicken, skin removed

1 cup button mushrooms

2 tablespoons olive oil

salt and pepper

one inch-deep non-stick pan

1. Make the batter. Combine eggs, water, oil and baking mix in a bowl. Fold the mixture in till there are no big lumps. You can also use an egg beater to minimize lumping.

2. Mix in mushrooms, shredded chicken and cheese.

After making sure your mixture is done, you can put in all the other ingredients.
Slice mushrooms first before folding them into the mixture.

3. Pour the mixture onto a non-stick pan. Keep on low heat (around 250 Β°F) and cover. Depending on the pan you’re using, your Cheezy Chicken Pot Pie should be done in around 20 to 30 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the middle to check if it’s done (toothpick should come out clean if the dish is ready.).

All done!
Serves 2 to 4. Enjoy! πŸ™‚
