Ok I know chips are not on a lot of people’s menus in January, but cooked sensibly they don’t have to be a ‘forbidden’ food.
These super tasty fries are baked with a spicy coating to give you a flavour kick.
My top tip with baked chips is to make sure you wash or soak the chipped potatoes in water and thoroughly dry them before coating in a tablespoon of oil per 800g-1kg of potato. Toss them with your hands then sprinkle with a spice mix of 2 teaspoon of smoked paprika, 2 teaspoon cayenne pepper and half a teaspoon of salt. Toss again and bake in the oven in a single layer at 200deg C fan / 220deg C for around 45mins, turning after 30mins.
I like them well done (cannot stand an anemic chip!) but cook to your preference. .
