I want to make a dish for a luau this weekend. It is called Chicken Luau. It calls for onion chips. What are onion chips and where do I get them?

Onion flavored hawaiian style potato chips?? Target and safeway (vons) carry them in my area.

Same as french fried onions, I'd assume. Y'know, like the stuff you cover a green bean cassarole with?

I found a recipe called "Grilled Onion Chips"
These chips are tasty little snacks without a lot of calories. Great way to get rid of unwanted sweet onions in your refrigerator.
Wild Oregano on Sticks (thick and long) with oregano removed*
2 Large, Sweet Onions (Peruvian, Walla/Walla, Vidalia)
1 clove garlic, pressed and chopped
1 tablespoon Fresh Thyme, or 1/2 teaspoon dried
1.5 teaspoons of dried oregano from stick
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1.5 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar or Balsamic Vinegar
1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash
Pepper and Salt
Light Sour Cream
1 tablespoon chives minced
Cut off ends onion and remove off peal. Cut onion in half lengthwise.
Take onion apart in layers. Larger pieces should be cut in half.
Mix garlic, thyme, oregano, Mrs. Dash, olive oil and vinegar in small bowl.
Put onion pieces in freezer bag, pour mixture in and marinate for one hour.
Prepare grill for high heat setting. If using charcoal (preferred) coals should be hot but not flaming.
Take oregano off of sticks with fingers. Thread onion pieces 1" apart on sticks. Keep marinade.
Place on grill and actively turn as edges of onions are crisped.
Brush on more dressing at least one time during cooking.
Remove from heat. Serve with sticks in tact. Pull off onions and dip into
sour cream mixed with chives if desired.
It is important to make these as crispy as possible without being burnt. They are then like potato chips--but much more nutritious.
Quick Cooking tip: Purchased Italian Salad Dressing can be used to marinate onions.
Sounds good enough for me to try!
I bet you feel more like you do now now than you did when you came in.
