Salt and pepper chips | Recipe (Slimming World friendly)

One of my favourite ever Chinese takeaway dishes is salt and pepper chips – I could eat a carton of them to myself and I often get cravings for them, and whenever we do go down the naughty route and actually have a takeaway, I always order these – they are just so good!

Now I’m doing Slimming World I could have them but they would be a great almighty number of syns! I had a really bad craving for them one night but I wanted to stay on plan, so I thought I’d attempt my own salt and pepper chips – they were really tasty and pretty good considering they were baked and not deep fried, so this is now one of my favourite go-to fakeaway recipes.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 2-3 large potatoes, peeled and chipped (chunky)
  • 1 medium white onion, sliced
  • 4 spring onions, sliced diagonally
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and diced
  • original Fry Light
  • ground salt
  • ground pepper
  • Chinese 5-spice
Method
  • Preheat oven to gas 6/400F/200C.
  • Place chipped potatoes on a baking tray and spray with Fry Light until evenly coated.
  • Bake for around 40-45 minutes, turning occasionally.
  • When the chips are just about cooked, you can make the ‘dressing’. Fry the onion and the chilli on a low heat for 2 or 3 minutes and then add the spring onion.
  • Continue to cook until the onions and chilli are soft, then add the cooked chips to the pan.
  • Toss well with the onions and chilli and then add salt, pepper, and Chinese 5-spice to taste (I like quite a lot as I do like them spicy!).
  • Cook on the hob for a further two minutes or so until the chips are well coated in the onions, chilli, salt, pepper, and Chinese 5-spice.
  • Serve with your meal, and enjoy!
