Sweet Potato Chips

  • Have you ever felt the pressure of entertaining, knowing you really need to put something on the table with a bit of a “wow factor”?
  • Have you ever thought you need something to add a bit of excitement to a meal but you’ve no idea how?
  • Have you felt like you can’t be bothered to spend hours slaving over a hot stove, but dinner still needs to be on the table and everyone still expects to be fed?

Well this is my attempt to break through kitchen fatigue and to give you a recipe which is nearly impossible to get wrong.  I just hope you like it as much as I do (and as much as my willing subjects liked them).

The ingredients (this serve 2 people as a side dish):

2 Sweet potatoes (1 medium potato is probably enough for 1 person, so base your calculations on this)

½ tsp Smoked paprika (more if you’re like me and love a bit of heat)

1 tbsp Olive oil

Pinch of Salt and pepper

1 tbsp Polenta (either the coarse or the fine will suffice, it is just for a bit of extra crunch)


The recipe:

  1. Put the oven on at 200 degrees Celsius
  2. Slice the potato into thick chunky chips
  3. Throw the potato into an oven tray and add the smoked paprika, oil, polenta, salt and pepper.  Toss, making sure the potato is nicely coated.
  4. Put the potato in the oven for 25-30 mins.
  5. Serve
