Chunky Chips

These slimming friendly Chunky Chips are a delicious side, great for anyone calorie counting or following a diet plan like Weight Watchers!

Who would have thought that you could eat chips on a diet?!?! It’s one of the things that really shocked me when we started our slimming journey, that we could eat these Chunky Chips and still loose weight?! Madness.

We use Cornish Sea Salt on our chips, not because we’re foodies, but because they come in different flavours! Chilli, Onion, Garlic, even Smoked salt – which just adds another dimension the chips. Seriously, try it. Wow! You can buy them on Amazon, so you have no excuse to spice up your chips.

    1. I usually make then quite slim and dont par boil them as they can crumble all over in the air fryer so just put straight in with the fry light and seasoning. Cook for 10 mins then leave to stand for 5 mins then cook another 5 mins to crisp up
