Dieters Chips

For years I felt deprived of my guilty pleasure, chips, because I've always been on a some sort of diet. However I have come up with a low fat version of chips that will leave you coming up with excuses to make them again and again.

Serves 1, very generously


  • 2 good quality potatoes, I like roosters cause the skin gets nice and crispy
  • Some low fat olive oil spray (or 1 tbsp olive oil)
  • Sea Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Dried oregano or dired italian mixed herbs
  • Malt vinegar and ketchup to serve.

  1. Cut the potatoes into medium cut chips
  2. Place in a pan of cold water, bring up to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes
  3. Drain the chips and pat dry with kitchen paper
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the chips, oil, herbs, and seasoning.
  5. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and spray with oil to prevent the chips from sticking
  6. Place the chips on the tray in a single layer and place in over for 25 mins, turning often to ensure an even crispy coating.
  7. Serve with more salt, ketchup and vinegar.
Because you are using mininium oil, the fat content of the chips is kept low. Making chips as a special treat can become a thing of the past and you can have them regularly mid week without the guilt.
