Oven-Baked Chips



  • 8 medium potatoes in the skin
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) sunflower oil
  • black pepper to taste
  • ½ tsp (2,5 ml) salt
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) dried thyme or rosemary
  • 6-8 cloves of garlic, peeled


Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

Cut potatoes into wedges and place in a bowl.

Mix the rest of the ingredients and pour over the potatoes. Mix well to coat the potatoes with the oil.

Place in a single layer on an oven tray. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.


This recipe works well with sweet potatoes and butternut, or a combination of these.

The potatoes can be boiled or microwaved until almost tender and then cut into wedges. Then they will bake for 20 minutes.

Spicy potatoes: Replace the herbs with 2 tsp paprika, curry powder or turmeric.
