    Hello all,

    I actually don't boil mine at all anymore, I just chop them up, skins & all, spray with fry light, season and bung them on the mesh chip trays you can buy, they crisp up lovely!

    Ohhh I love SW chips might have them tonight with beans. Julie where do you get mesh chip trays? Would rather not have to boil them first, do they make a difference?

    Try this

    I put rosemary and garlic schwartz over mine after boiling for 10-15 mins (makes the insides fluffier), then fry light and oven bake! Served with chicken wrapped in bacon or peppered steaks! Yum Yum:p

    Thanks for the tip as I just tried microwaving them (instead of boiling) and then put them in the oven and they got done much quicker and tasted even nicer :)

    I always find SW chips quite tasteless - so it is all about the seasoning - garlic, paprika, chilli powder, black pepper - always adds flavour!

    Ah maybe microwaving is the trick to getting them more crisp and fluffy - mine never look like the pictures :eek:(

    confused! Ex SW, ex CC, now on FAST 5:2
    I used to microwave them but now just chip them and go...seems to work better for me though they NEVER look quite the way they do in the pictures in the magazine! I think SW chips, bean and a fried egg is my favourite dinner! And it's good value too x

    I tried the microwaving way - OMG, its so much quicker and they tasted better!!!! I did them for 3 minutes, sprayed with the buttery frylite and salted, pepered and a good coating of paprika. Couldn't taste the paprika but gave them a lovely colour. Actually taste like home made chips in chip pan!!!!!!! I love this diet!!!!!!!
