Chinese salt and pepper chips

    35 min

    This is my attempt at everyone's favourite Chinese takeaway dish, it's the closest I have managed to get to the great taste of the local Chinese. This recipe can also be used for any meat of your choosing. You can bread and deep-fry chicken or use other meats and add them at the same point as the chips in this recipe.

    1. Cook your oven chips according to the packet instructions and do the following as they cook:
