homemade sweet potato chips

 We're in the process of getting rid of whatever is left in the fridge and pantry, since we will be away for almost 10 days and it'll be a shame if most of our food went to waste. So, I was thinking up recipes for the sweet potato I've been meaning to cook for days. Here's a simple homemade sweet potato chips recipe:

1 sweet potato thinly sliced and dried (I dried mine using paper towels)
1 tablespoon of light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 cup of peanut oil/vegetable oil

Mix brown sugar, salt and cayenne pepper in a small bowl and set aside. Pour oil in a saucepan over medium heat.

 Deep fry the sweet potato until golden around the edges, about 45 secs to a minute. Drop the sweet potato in batches. Do not overcrowd the pan!
 Using a strainer, shake off excess oil and transfer chips onto a baking sheet (I used aluminum foil on mine). Sprinkle the chips with the seasoning and let cool to crisp.
 Serve while still hot and crispy! Yum!
