  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Toss the chips with half the olive oil and half the lemon juice, arrange in a layer on a baking tray, then season. Cook for 25 mins. Stir the remaining lemon juice into the marinade.

Very yummy and easy to make. The peas were very good, would recommend using more marinade next time.
