  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.

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!

I've always brought my just-cut chips to the boil in a pan of cold water and then tossed them in a good olive oil before baking. This gives great results!

We've just moved into our new house & don't want to cook chips the usual smelly way! So this recipe is ideal, great chips & no "chips smell" hanging around afterwards

I've been making my own chips for a while now but these are really good, especially with the celery salt.

We only have oven chips in our house. I normally buy them but these were excellent, will definitely make them all the time now, and it was so easy.
