Homemade oven chips

Anyone can eat chips and stay healthy, it’s only when people eat tons of them, and all the time, and they take up the space of vegetables and other good stuff, that it becomes an issue. Or if they’re cooked in some ‘orrible fast food joint re-used oil.

There’s a large oven-chip factory in a town near me, and believe me the smell would put you off bought oven chips for life. Repulsive. Don’t buy them, make these instead.

Just good spuds, good fat, sea salt and an oven.


  • 600g potatoes
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • sea salt

Heat the oven to its highest setting.

Wash the potatoes and, without peeling, cut into chunky chips.

Place the chips and a teaspoon of sea salt in a large bowl with the olive oil and turn with your hands until they’re all coated.

Arrange them in a single layer on a baking tray and bake for about 25 mins, turning them once halfway.

Nutrition Info


Potatoes are wrongly slated by nutrition fashionistas. They have plenty going for them, as well as being incredibly delicious!

Their biggest claim to fame is their vitamin B6, which is used throughout the body for cell formation, and that’s a pretty big task. B6 is also a key player in nerve and brain function, as well as gene expression. Spuds are also pretty rich in vitamin C, which isn’t only good for immunity but plays a strong part in forming and maintaining healthy connective tissue and skin.

Good honest nutrition

Today I will be happier than a seagull with a stolen chip.

Portion Guidelines
