Lightly spray a sheet pan with cooking spray–just enough so the potatoes don't stick.
Slice your sweet potatoes about 1/2 inch thick and spread them in a single layer on your sheet pan.
Lightly spray the potatoes with cooking spray. You can drizzle oil on them instead if you'd prefer.
Place your potatoes in the oven and roast for 35-45 minutes.
Flip your potatoes halfway though the cook time.
Once your potatoes are finished cooking, serve immediately or allow to cool before moving to an air tight container.
Store in the fridge for up to a week.
Line your sheet pan with aluminum foil, parchment paper, or a silpat mat for easy clean up.
I leave the sweet potato skins on for this recipe because I find that when I leave the skin, it helps the slices stay together. You can peel them if you prefer.
Be sure your knife is very sharp when cutting the sweet potatoes.
Mix up the flavors of your potatoes by changing up your seasonings: curry powder, chili powder, garlic powder, brown sugar, or cinnamon are all add great flavors to add.
Cooking times change depending on how thick your potatoes are. I begin checking mine at 30 minutes, and 5-10 minute increments after.
