To make these delicious sweet potato chips, you only need four simple ingredients. Sliced sweet potatoes, peanut oil and some salt and pepper. This recipe is an old one that uses a Dutch oven. Dutch ovens are not something everyone is familiar with, but once you get the hang of it, it is something you will always want to use—the main recipe for the sweet potato chips all about the potatoes and the peanut oil.
To fry the potatoes, first put the Dutch oven in medium heat with peanut oil inside. When the oil reaches perfect temperature, fry the potato slices in separate batches. You have to cook them for about three minutes. Don’t add too many chips at once, though; otherwise, they will turn greasy instead of fresh and crispy. After the chips are fried to perfection, please remove them and put them on paper oil to absorb the extra oil. Finally, season with salt and pepper and serve hot.
Ingredients For Sweet Potato Chips

Step By Step Directions: Sweet Potato Chips
1 Pat the sweet potato slices dry with a paper towel if needed. Add a 3″ depth of peanut oil to a dutch oven over medium-high heat. The temperature of the oil should be 300° when ready.

Remove the chips from the oil and drain on paper towels—season to taste with salt and black pepper.
