Coconut and Pistachio Sweet Potato Chips

Here is a modern twist on a classic sweet potato chip.  By frying them in coconut oil it gave the sweet potatoes a wonderful flavour.   Adding the pistachios stepped it up a notch!


2 large sweet potatoes, finely sliced into chips
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup pistachios, finely chopped
coarse salt to taste


In a cast iron skillet over medium high heat add coconut oil.  Allow the coconut oil to melt and heat up.  The oil should give you a thick layer of oil over the pan.  If it doesn't add more.

Add the chips to the pan and fry, turning once to cook both sides.  Once browned place on a plate lined with paper towel to absorb any additional oil, while you fry the next bunch.

Once all chips are fried put into a large bowl and toss with pistachios and coarse salt.
