Preheat the oven to 450°F.
Heat the garlic and oil together in a small saucepan over medium heat for 2 minutes. Strain the garlic from the oil with a small mesh strainer. Set both garlic and oil aside.
Cut the potatoes in to 1/4-inch-thick matchsticks. In a large bowl, toss together the oil, potatoes, and salt. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray and spread the potatoes onto it in a single layer. Bake until golden and crisp, about 35 minutes.
Remove the potatoes from the baking sheet with a metal spatula. In a serving bowl, toss with the parsley, reserved garlic, and salt to taste. Serve immediately.
