  • 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.

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.
