Method

  1. Heat oven to its highest setting, ideally 250C/fan 230C/gas 9. Cut each potato into 1cm-wide slices, then into 1cm-thick sticks. Blanch in a large pan of boiling water for 3 mins, then drain well.
  2. Shake the potatoes out onto a roasting pan, drizzle with oil, ensuring each chip is evenly coated, then season well. Bake for about 15-20 mins, turning the potatoes at least twice, until golden brown and crisp.

I now regularly make these chips now; cheaper,tastier and healthier than shop bought oven chips; I enjoy mine extra crispy, which is easy to achieve. Great recipe.

I just made these chips, at 8 in the morning:) they turned out fine and tasty. I like them a lot, I will make them again. They do not take longer to make than the advised time and Maris Piper 'tatoes worked great.

Trying to eat more healthily , used 1 cal spray instead of oil and they were lovely. My son said they were nicer than any oven chip. Will be making these again

I will never buy 'Oven Chips' again. These are so easy and taste delicious much better than shop bought I didn't have Groundnut Oil but used Rapeseed which worked and much more healthy

Made these chips for the first time this evening and they were fantastic. The whole family enjoyed and they were very easy to make. I will definitely cook them again.Thank you :)

Excellent! I used 1 sweet potato along with 3 small regular potatoes, olive oil and seasoning, comes out delicious and a great mix of flavours! Such an easy recipe too, thank you!

Wow so good! I've never thought to broil the potatoes before baking before but it makes a huge difference :) I seasoned with chilli powder and tandoori seasoning and served with peri mayo

Such a simple and easy recipe. The chips turned out lovely and crispy, but also fluffy inside. Delicious!

Very acceptable alternative to deep fried chips, while trying to cut down on fats. Will make again when we fancy chips

Fantastic, lovely and crispy just like frying. I used Maris pipers. I will try olive next time as I'm not sure about the groundnut oil, but I guess that's all down to taste. Will definitely make again.

So simple and delicious - why haven't I made these before. Salting and Peppering (a technical term) before cooking makes a big difference.

I've been cooking decent home made oven chips for years without blanching them first but this step makes all the difference to the final result - these are the best oven chips i've ever made! From now on I'll use this method instead.
