Roast Chicken Dinner Potato Chips With Mushrooms, Lemon, and Thyme Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 ounce dried mushrooms, such as cremini
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely grated zest from 1 lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon crushed dried thyme
  • 1 recipe extra crunchy potato chips (see note)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Ingredients for potato chips

  • 1 pound russet potatoes (about 2 large), sliced 1/8th of an inch thick on a mandoline slicer, rinsed under cold running water and stored in water
  • 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 2 quarts canola or peanut oil
  • Kosher salt

Directions

  1. 1.Drain potatoes. Combine vinegar and 2 quarts water in large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Add potatoes and cook for three minutes. Drain and spread on paper towel-lined rimmed baking sheet. Allow to dry for five minutes, moving potatoes around to get even drying.
  2. 2.Meanwhile, heat oil in large wok or Dutch oven to 325°F. Add 1/3 of potato slices and cook, stirring and flipping constantly with wire mesh spider or slotted spoon until potatoes release no more bubbles, 10-20 minutes. Transfer chips to a large bowl lined with paper towels, sprinkle with salt, and toss to coat (smaller chips may cook faster than large ones and should be removed from the oil as they finish). 
  3. 3.Transfer seasoned chips to a serving bowl and repeat step 2 with remaining 2 batches chips. Serve immediately or allow to cool completely before transferring to zipper-lock bag.

Directions

  1. 1.In an electric spice grinder or high-power blender, combine nutritional yeast, dried mushrooms, lemon zest, garlic powder, and thyme and blend until a fine powder forms.
  2. 2.While chips are still hot and fresh from the oil, and working in batches if necessary, set in a large paper-towel-lined bowl and sprinkle nutritional yeast mixture all over. Season with salt and pepper. Using clean hands, toss to coat chips evenly, then transfer to a serving bowl. Cooled chips can be stored in a zipper-lock bag or airtight container for up to 2 days.
