Uncooked potato

2¼ pound(s), (1kg), peeled and cut into thick chips

Cooking spray

10 spray(s)

Table salt

1 tsp(s)

Black pepper

pinch(es), Freshly ground

Smoked paprika

1 tsp(s), (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C / fan oven 180°C / Gas Mark 6. Put a large roasting tin in the oven to preheat at the same time.
  2. Make sure that the chips are dry, by patting them with kitchen paper or drying them in a clean tea towel.
  3. Remove the hot roasting tin from the oven. Spray with low fat cooking spray. Tip in the chips, then spray 6 times with low fat cooking spray. Season with salt, pepper and a pinch of paprika (if using).
  4. Roast the oven chips for 30 minutes, turning after 20 minutes. Cook for a little longer if necessary, so that the chips are cooked and browned. Prepare the potatoes up to 2 hours in advance, keeping the uncooked chips in a large bowl of cold water until needed, then drain well and pat dry.
