Fat Free Chips Recipe


I love chips. (potatoes in themselves are not that fattening) I got this recipe from a slimming club. If you're watching your waistline, these chips have a minimum of fat so you have all the pleasure and none of the guilt.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 240°C/475°F/Gas 9. Peel the potatoes using a potato peeler and remove any blemishes or 'eyes'. Slice lengthwise into approx ¨öin/1cm thick rectangular chips.

Step 2

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the chips and cook for 4 minutes. Drain and leave aside for 10 minutes to dry.

Step 3

Return the chips to the dry saucepan, cover with a lid and shake to 'rough up' the edges of the chips - this roughness is important to the texture of the chips.

Step 4

Spray a metal baking tray with Fry Light. Transfer the chips to the tray, spray lightly with Fry Light and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden brown on all sides.

Step 5

Drain them on absorbent kitchen paper and serve with salt and vinegar.

Things You'll Need

  • 2lb medium sized Maris Piper potatoes
  • Fry Light spray
  • Crushed sea salt and malt vinegar [optional]
