Chinese Salt & Pepper Chips Recipe Chinese Fakeaway

If you've been following my blog for a while, then you will know that I am a massive fan of a Fakeaway. A classic takeaway dish that you make yourself at home, which means it is usually better for you as well.

I recently made a massive Chinese fakeaway platter, and these were so good that they deserved a recipe all of their own!

Salt & Pepper chips are a Chinese takeaway classic, made with peppers, onions, and Chinese Five spice.

This recipe is made by cooking the chips in the oven, but it would work just as well with frozen oven chips, or even if you cooked them in an air-friar. 

I always recommend you taste the spice mix, then if you like it hotted you can always add more chilli or spice!

I kept the skin on my chips to cook them, because I'm lazy, and they came out just as well!
