Put a paper towel on a plate and arrange the slices like so. Make sure they are not touching each other or they'll stick together.

Cover with another paper towel and put in the microwave. The idea here is to dry them out by cooking them for a bit. The amount of cooking time depends on your oven, I nuke mine for two minutes.
