How to make Potato chips in the microwave

Another attempt to get my crunch on, while trying to eat healthy.   This one will take a few more attempts to get the timing right on cooking time.  Mine came out chewy and when I cooked a little longer, they burned. 

Ingredients:
3 medium russet potatoes
oil cooking spray
spices to season your chips to taste, I used sea salt

Directions:
Using a mandoline, slice the potatoes into very thin rounds.
Place the slices in a large bowl.  Cover with cold water, swish and then drain.
Place the slices in a single layer on a towel, and then roll it up to lightly dry them. Keep the slices rolled up in the towel as you cook off batches to keep them from oxidizing and turning brown.
Spray a microwave safe place, lay the slices out in a single layer and spray the potato slices with cooking spray.
Cook for 1 to 2 minutes and remove from microwave.
Be careful, the plate will be hot.
Continue until all slices have been cooked.
Sprinkle with salt or seasoning.

Stay hungry my friend!
