    Will do!
    We have SW chips about 3 sometimes 4 times a week here, my OH wont even entertain buying frozen ones now but it's me who has to cook them all the time now!
    So I just chip them with the skins on in the morning, leave them in the pot of water and put on to boil when I start tea.

    I don't pre-cook them at all; just chop them up and spray well with fry light, then bake in the oven for 30 mins at 220Âșc. While they're baking I spray them a few more times with fry light.

    I always do mine in the microwave..cant be bothered boiling the water!! Lol
    You can either chip them (as normal chips), or do them as you would a jacket potato and pierce it straight through the middle.
    A decent size spud normally takes 6 mins, but keep checking.
    Pre-heat oven to highest setting.
    Once potatoes are cool enough (a cooked through), chip them or wedges. Spray a baking tray with frylight, put chips on, spray again and add a little salt. Put in oven until crispy.
    It sounds like a lot of faff, but it really isnt and they are delicious!

    I always put them in the micro first~turn your oven on to highest setting, peel your spuds, cut and put them in micro for about 7-10mins (thats for 2 large potatoes but keep checking). When I bring them out I put them into a colander and give them a shake. I then spray them with frylight and sprinkle with garlic salt and place on a wire mesh thingy that it supposed to make them crispier and it definately does. Hope this helps xx

    When I do my chips I cut the potato into wedges and leave the skin on and stick in the steamer for ten mins. At the same time I spray an oven tray with fry light and stick in the oven to heat up. Chuck the chips on the hot tray and they sizzle, spray with some fry light and shake them about and put on some seasoning then stick back in the oven for about 30 mins (taking them out and giving them a shake once or twice during this time). This makes them soft in the middle and crunchy on the outside.

    I like them seasoned with rosemary and thyme or tex mex seasoning depending on what I'm serving them with.
