In The Kitchen // Healthy home-made chips

healthy home made chips
This was one of my favourite recipes while I did the low fodmap diet near the end of July. I found this recipe in the August/September Slimming World magazine. Super simple, cheap and {if you have a decent oven, unlike us} quick to cook.

1. Preheat oven to 180C or gas mark 6

2. Peel and cut up your potatoes into whatever sizes and shapes you want. I tried to make slim cut ones as they cooked quicker.
3. Put your ‘chips’ into a pan of hot water with a pinch of salt and pepper and boil for 5-10 minutes. No longer than 10 minutes though!

4. Drain off your ‘chips’ and pop them onto a baking tray and spray your ‘chips’ with a low calorie spray 3-5 times add another pinch or two {or as much as you prefer} of salt and pepper toss them on the baking tray to make sure they’re all coated with the mixture and pop them in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

5. Check to see how the ‘chips’ are looking, if there still quite white spray them with the low calorie oil and toss them on the tray again and place back in the oven for another 15-20 minutes.
6. Add your chips to the rest of your meal, unless you like them a bit more well done and crispy in which case cook for another 10 minutes.

I really liked cooking these, they took about as long to cook as store bought oven chips but instead of going out and buying more chips I just used up what was left of our potatoes. I served my healthy home-made chips with lime chicken and some salad.
