  • 750g Desirée potato (about 3 medium large), peeled



    The world's favourite root vegetable, the potato comes in innumerable varieties. A member of…

  • groundnut oil, for drizzling
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  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

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
