Sour Cream and Onion Chips

I made these mock Sour Cream and Onion Chips today, and about 5 minutes later they are completely gone. These turned out delicious! I will be making these again.
I have a barbecue coming up for my soccer team and I think I might bring these. Several of the team's members are Paleo, and those who aren't seem to think that paleo eating is boring and tasteless. I think these could be a game changer for some, both in their taste and simplicity of preparation. I'm thinking these are be a nice alternative to traditional potato chips.

Mock- Sour Cream and Onion Chips
1 Green Plantain
Coconut Oil (enough to cover the bottom of a high sided frying pan by about 1/8 inch)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp parsley

Cut plantain to 1/8 inch thick chips. Heat coconut oil on medium high heat. Once oil is hot, add in plantain chips. Cook until brown on one side, about 2 minutes or so. Flip chips and fry on other side for an additional minute or 2.
Once brown on both sides, remove and place directly in bowl containing salt, onion powder and parsley. Don't try to get the excess oil off them. Not only is the oil great for you, it will help the seasonings adhere to the chips. Toss chips to distribute seasoning. Serve.
