Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Peel the potatoes and cut them into long chip shapes – the thickness you do is entirely up to you, though the width of your finger is ideal. Rinse under the cold tap and pat dry with a tea towel.
  2. Spread the chips on a large non-stick baking tray and toss with oil and celery salt. Lie them fl at in a single layer – use two trays rather than overcrowd one. Roast for 45-50 mins, turning now and then. When cooked they should be golden brown and crisp with a light fluffy centre. Scatter on sea salt to serve.

I had them in for just over an hour and they cooked nicely, next time I will make the chips bigger.

Fan-baked at almost 250C for half hour & turned them half way through cooking & my chips looked just as good :)

We have a brand new Bosch oven too, so quite a good quality oven :)

From the picture I think after they were almost ready they seemed to have put them under a hot grilled to get them the way they are..will try & see:)

I would probably say, unless you have a high quality oven either increase the temperature or leave them in for much longer!

I didn't think these were that great. For a start, the oven temperature was too low. All ovens are different so probably partly my fault. I finished them off in the pan and they were OK. I also used high quality potatoes, so who knows!

Wow! These were fabulous. I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out wonderfully. I will definitely be making these again. I served them with river cobbler with lemon juice, garlic & fresh parsley, and also baked beans. Who needs a chip shop!?! :-)

I've always found par boiling for a few minutes makes any of these oven roasted chips/wedges better, it depends how much time I have whether I bother or not. Didnt realise there was a recipe for it tho. If you can get hold of sumac then try it on your chips, fab!

I didn't think these were that great. Mine didn't turn out like those in the picture either. They took ages and in the end still weren't really cooked enough. I'm going to try the very similar Gordon Ramsey recipe which has tons more good reviews. The only reason I tried this one first was to avoid par boiling first..
In fairness my oven is absolutely rubbish!

Have made these many times now - and each time has been a success! They look perfect and taste divine; firm and crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy inside. Very good with fish or home made burgers.

Have tried these a few times (they are slimming world recommended - except for the oil) but they never turn out like the picture. They are still nice but I'm going to try again in the hope that they look as appetising.

Really easy and tasty- I leave the skins on to make them abit more healthy! Worth taking time to make, beat shop bought oven chips hands down.

These are amazing!!
I'm desperately trying to stop my dad from eating fried foods and unfortunately he loves take away chips. He loved these so much, I think maybe even more than all the fast food chain chips put together :]

nothing beats a good oven roasted chunky chip

Are these long, thin roast potatoes?

Instead of laying the chips in a pan and then sprinkling with the oil, put the chips into a saucepan with the oil, put the lid on and give it a good shake. The chips will be evenly coated and when baked will taste absolutely scrumptious!
