Homemade Oven Chips Slimming style
Ok so I’m putting it out there, here’s a step by step to the perfect Healthy Homemade Oven Chips slimming style.
Ive been making these for years and trust me there’s a fine line between a good oven chip and a bad oven chip
I think over the decades I’ve perfected my potato choice (Maris Piper) and my method and I get perfectly crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, golden chips – yum yum!! Every time – even using a low cal spray
I’d even go as far to say they rival a fried one, yes I said it 🙂
And let’s just forget about those frozen, bland anaemic things out the freezer shall we? Yuk 🙁 Why would you buy those, I’d like to wager the fact that if you try these – you may never buy oven chips again
Look at these beauties!!! Basking and beautifully golden – swoon
Oven method for fab Healthy Homemade Slimming Style chips
And no fancy pants Actifry here – just an oven – and trust me it works.
Maybe one day I’ll buy an Actifry for blog purposes and then I can compare, but for now here goes…
However for now if you follow this method to the letter you’ll end up with fab chips
I read a lot on groups on Facebook that people struggle to make slimming chips and so I have invested a little time and researched throughly the method and documented every little thing – which I hope will help
Step 1 to your slimming chips
Preheat your oven (see full details on the recipe card at the Bottom).
Line a large baking sheet with paper and spray liberally with fry light. I like the sunflower one, but the others work too
I use Maris Piper Potatoes I think they make the perfect oven chips, other varieties work too, just think these are the best
So I peel using a potato peeler (if you want skin on chips for extra fibre they also work using this method)
And then slice into chip shapes, try and make them all the same size (ish) I usually ago for about 1.5cm thick
Take a large pan and half fill with water, salt well and bring too the boil
Pop your chips in and parboil for 5 minutes only – no longer
Remove and drain immediately
Place chips in a single layer (that bit is important) on your paper lined baking sheet
Spray liberally with Fry Light
Use salt if you like too and pepper
Bake in your hot oven for 10 minutes
Remove from the oven and turn your chips over – this is important to ensure even browning.
Spray again and return to the oven for a further 10 minutes
Ta-Dah the perfect Oven Chip – slimming style
Pimping your Homemade Oven Chips
Once you have cracked this method you can pimp them anyway you like
Your could try
- Garlic salt
- Cayenne pepper
- Italian herbs
- Parmesan cheese (at the end)
You could grate your healthy Extra Cheese over the top and make them into dirty fries – so many ideas!!
I love potatoes, in any shape or form – chips, mash, roasties
Here’s a little info on the nutrition of the lovely specimins
Potatoes are a great source of fibre with their skins on as well as being naturally fat-free and Gluten free.

Syns for your healthy oven chips
Kit for chip making
I use a potato peeler like this – In fact I use it for all my veg to be honest
It’s worth investing in a decent one
And if you make a lot of chips, often, this is great
It makes your chips all the same size 🙂 love a gadget 🙂
