Everybody loves chips...only problem is the high calorie count!! This really simple recipe cuts the calories down so you don't have to feel so guilty about indulging!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 700 g potatoes
  • 1 34 pints meat stock or 1 34 pints vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 220 degrees.
  2. Cut the potatoes into thick chips.
  3. Heat the stock in a large pan,when boiling,plunge the potatoes into it and cook approx 5 mins or until just tender.
  4. Drain the potatoes and cool slightly-reserve the stock for making chips on another day!
  5. Put the oil in a large ziplock bag and carefully toss the chips in it-at this point you can freeze them for use another day.
  6. Transfer the chips to a non-stick baking tray and bake for approx 15 mins,turning them once or twice, until golden and crisp (if cooking from frozen allow a little longer!).
  7. Sprinkle with paprika or if you're like me and can't live without it some spicy chicken salt.

Wow - these are terrific. I had no issues at all with them browning but did find it took more like 30 minutes to have them cook through and brown but that worked out fine for me. I used a 375F oven temperature and turned them about every 5 minutes. My family raved about them. I'll definitely be using this recipe often. Made for PAC 2011 because you are my adopted Chef.

OMG No, these are fantastic. Hands down the best oven fried potatoes that we have tried on this site. So good, quick, really easy to make. We loved them, crispy on the outside and tender and fluffy on the inside. I cooked them for 30 minutes and turned them often, sprinkled with coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper for a superior chips. My dh & I were both very impressed. This is now my go to recipe for chips, so much easier than frying. We loved the flavor that the chicken stock brought to the table, can't wait to try them with beef stock. They were the perfect side for our roast beef sandwiches. Thanks so much for sharing a new family favorite. I have added these to my Favorites Cookbook for 2013. Kudos
