Garlic Chips


Garlic Chips

I threw a bridal shower this weekend. Yes, one week after I moved into my new house, I invited people I didn’t know and a few that I did into my very quickly put together home. And not only did I have to put together my home, I also had to whip up some food. Although, I shouldn’t really say “had” because the truth of the matter is I enjoyed cooking it. And from the response these chips got, I think my guests enjoyed eating it.

These chips are like crack. I even toyed with the idea of calling them crack chips but figured that would turn some people off. So I figured I would just stick with garlic chips. It gets the point across very nicely dontcha think?

These chips are based on these garlic fries so really they were bound to be addictive. But the wonderful thing about these chips is that someone else does the frying for you all you have to do is cook the garlic for about 30 seconds then pour it over some thick cut potato chips and voilà!

  • Serves 4 - 6
  • Prep time:
  • Cook time:


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 10 cloves garlic, minced fine
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 large bag of thick cut potato chips


  1. Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and parsley, cook 30 seconds or just until garlic is fragrant. Remove from heat.
  2. Place chips in a bowl. Pour garlic and parsley over the top, toss to coat. Serve.

One of my friends at the shower said "I don't eat potato chips. Like ever. But I love these." I hope you do too. Enjoy!

    What a great snack food hack! If you’re already in for a bag of chips, it’s not like an extra tablespoon of olive oil is gonna break the bank either ;-)

    I’m gonna try this at our next family picnic!

    Wow, what a great idea! If I may tout one of my own creations you might enjoy, I made up what I call “garlic gravy” a year ago. If you’re curious, search for it at theobsessivechef.

    Oh, no way! We have a convenience store here called Sheetz and they make the best garlic fries. So good! And now you post these chips, which are already one of my big weaknesses. I am so craving these and will definitely be making some.

    Wow, I never thought to do something to storebought chips like that, awesome idea! Even more awesome for my husband, who looooves salt & vinegar chips (but mostly just the vinegar), and always complains they have too much salt and way too little vinegar. I never thought about adding stuff to them! =D
