  • 300 g Oven Chips See Notes
  • 3 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Red Chili
  • 1 Green Chili
  • 2 Garlic Cloves

Salt And Pepper Seasoning Spice Mix


  • Pour the oven chips into a roasting tray and drizzle 1 tablespoon of oil over the chips. With your hands toss the chips around until the oil evenly coats the chips.
  • Place the chips in the oven to cook at 180°C (gas mark 4, 350°F) for 20 to 25 minutes or until cooked.
  • While the chips are in the oven cooking, with a sharp knife chop the chillies, garlic, bell pepper and peel and chop the onion.
  • With a wok of frying pan add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and stir-fry the sliced onions, garlic, bell pepper and chillies over a medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until the garlic and onions have browned. Then remove from the heat and set aside until the chips have cooked.
  • When the chips are cooked reheat the stir-fry mixture for 2 to 3 minutes and add the cooked chips and mix together.
  • Sprinkle the seasoning mix (Chinese five spice, white pepper and salt) and toss the chips and vegetables around for 1 to 2 minutes or until the seasonings are evenly distributed.


  • Chips: I used straight cut oven chips in this recipe but you don’t have to do the same. You can fry your chips or use fresh chips from potatoes if you want. This recipe is very versatile! A yummy twist to the recipe is to make salt and pepper chips with sweet potato.
  • Servings: This recipe serves 4 people as a side dish but can easily feed 2 people as heavier/ filling dishes.
