This is such a quick and easy way to enjoy a healthy snack. Simply drizzle or toss kale in olive oil and crisp up in the microwave. Everyone's microwave is different so start off by cooking them for 1 minute, then more until you find the perfect timing and texture for you.
I have made kale chips in the oven for years but am now switching to the microwave! I am giving 4 stars since I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I use an oil mister and spray the kale w/the oil and hand mix w/salt and whatever else I want for flavor. It took 4 min to get it really crispy. I used parchment paper on the rotating glass in my microwave since the kale stuck to the plate. - 01 Jun 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Easy and delicious. Very crispy without the hassle of baking. I'd recommend tossing the kale pieces and olive oil together in a bowl for a more uniform coating. - 21 Mar 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I loved the idea of making these in the microwave, rather than heating up the oven. However, I did have an issue with the chips flaring up and sparking after only about 1 minute. I think I have a high wattage microwave, so perhaps that was the issue. I would suggest you do be careful to watch as they cook. The chips were delicious and crisp. I may try these again with much more watching. - 08 Jul 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
