  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Peel 6 large floury 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.

  2. Rinse under the cold tap and pat dry with a tea towel.

  3. Spread the chips on a large non-stick baking tray and toss with 2 tbsp olive oil and 1 tsp celery salt. Lie them flat in a single layer – use two trays rather than overcrowd one.

  4. 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 flaked sea salt to serve.

Perfectly OK, but nothing special.

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.

I have made these chips a couple of times now - they are so easy and so delicious; i will never go back to buying pre-cut oven chips!!

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
