Perfect Slimming World chips

A great cheat to make a crispy chip without having to par-boil and shake up!

I’ve made a lot of Slimming World friendly chips since starting- I love that they feel like such a treat but are syn-free. I’ve tried out lots of methods, and this is a great one to get a lovely crispy chip without the faff of par-boiling and shaking up (or even pre-microwaving as some do). The secret is instant mashed potato, and a little combination of spices which add a lovely flavour. I also love my crinkle chip cutter as there’s something so appealing looking about crinkle cut chips! I also have a chip mesh which I bought on ebay (very cheap) which allows them to brown and crisp all over.


My Recipe

Serves: 2
Healthy Extra:


  • 500g peeled and chipped potatoes
  • 1 dessert spoon instant mashed potato
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion granules
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (leave this out if you don't like them spicy)
  • Frylight


  1. Preheat oven to 180c. Prepare your chips. (If you are doing them in advance, leave them submerged in cold water until you are ready to use them and pat them dry with a teatowel or kitchen roll before using)
  2. Mix together the instant mashed potato, garlic powder, onion granules, salt, pepper and cayenne
  3. Put your raw chips into a bowl, spray generously with frylight, toss a couple of times and re-spray.
  4. Sprinkle over the powder mix, turning the chips to ensure they all get covered
  5. when fully coated, respray with Frylight and mix again
  6. Spread over your chip mesh, or over baking tray already sprayed with frylight. Give them one more spray all over and pop in the oven.
  7. I find that 30 mins cooking time has them perfectly cooked, but it can depend on your oven so keep a bit of an eye on them after 25 minutes
  8. Test a big one before you serve them to make sure that they are cooked through.

Additional Info

You can mix up the spices on the outside depending on what you are serving them with- I love garlic and rosemary too!
