Low Fat Oven Chips Recipe

How to make healthy low fat oven chips from Jeenas Kitchen:

I am going to tell you my "secret " to making tasty healthy low fat oven chips!

Chips can be "very healthy" as it is the way you cook them !

My chips are golden and crisp on the outside and fluffy in the centre with a real potato flavour and they taste delicious! We eat my chips recipe all the time here at home.

They taste so good that I have to keep reminding myself that I only used a little oil!

When you tuck into my chips on a white bread sandwich with some tomato sauce, you do not need to feel guilty that your chips have been deep fried soaking up grease like a sponge!

My healthy chips not only use little oil but use "good healthy olive oil" which is excellent for lowering your cholesterol and contains essential fatty acids.

Make sure you use "baking potatoes" like my recipe says because these are one of the best to make fresh oven chips from and they take no time to make and there is hardly any washing up!

So why not give Jeena's "low fat healthy oven chips" a go... (with out feeling guilty !) as these low fat oven chips are very healthy and taste wonderful.

I have lots of other "healthy recipes" on my food blog so keep visiting Jeenas Kitchen!

Ingredients for my home made low fat oven chip recipe:

3-4 Baking Potatoes
Olive Oil

'note... a baking tray that contains holes is needed for best results.'

Getting Started.......

Pre heat your oven to 220-2230C. Peel and chops your potatoes into medium thickness chips.

Place onto a pizza tray with holes in it.

Drizzle with a little olive oil.
You do not need to cover every chip or grease your tray, mix the chips around with your hand.

Place your tray of chips into the middle shelf of your oven for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes take your tray out of your oven. Use a spatula to turn your chips over and move them around a little.

Drizzle with a little olive oil and return to the oven for a further 10 minutes or until they are golden brown.

Now your home made chips are ready!

Dab with a little kitchen paper if desired.

Serve as they are or with a healthy burger or with some bread and sauce. YUM!

I love my healthy chip sandwich with a drop of tomato ketchup ouzing from the top!

I love how the British do potatoes! No way my wife would ever let me eat (we "Yanks" ;) call them french fries) chips this way! But if I could I think I would go Dutch and put mayo on them :)

Great Blog!

though i've never tried it in a sandwich before, i might give it a shot.

Yum! These look delicious! I've tried this method with sweet potatoes too and they are great but you have to watch carefully so they don't burn!

Cynthia said...

Yeah Jeena, chips are great made this way.

Seena said...

I liked the other recipe too, that stuffed one, and olive oil tip..
