Crunchy, Golden, Hot, Reduced Fat Chips. Xx

Time for a little bit of comfort food now that it's a warm Sunday afternoon. I would have to say chips are one of my favourite comfort foods. Simple. Delicious. They really hit the spot. Here is how to make chips that are crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle but not soaked in fat.

Time: Five minute prep, seven minutes to boil and then thirty minutes to cook.
Serves: One as a main, Two as a side.

• 4 potatoes, sliced into rectangles about one and a half cms/ half an inch wide and as long as the potato itself, is.
• Two tablespoons of oil.
• Salt and Pepper.

Once you've cut the potatoes, place them in a saucepan of water and bring them to the boil.
Let simmer for five minutes.
Carefully take them out of the water and drain.
Place them on an oven tray on a sheet of baking paper. Drizzle the oil over them and using your hands, make sure the oil is completely covering them. You could use a cooking spray here, too.
Be careful. These little chips can be quite soft and you don't want them to get all mushy.
Cover in salt and pepper.
Place in an oven at 240C or 465F for half an hour or until the chips are golden.
Serve with tomato sauce. Delish.


  1. thanks, these tasted awesome. I never thought to put pepper on the chips but I love it. I also added a tad of onion salt.
