I visited my friend a while ago and she served me chicken and chips, the chips was the best I’ve ever had. Honestly, it was just fried chips but the taste was heavenly and I even had a second helping. If I tell you the secret to those heavenly fried chips was just onions, would you believe? Frozen chips fried with onions and that took it from the normal everyday homemade chips to gourmet for me. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t fry my chips with onions as I mostly oven-bake them.  So today, I’m sharing with you my friend’s amazing homemade chips with my own twist.

If you’ve had Chinese salt and pepper chips from a takeaway, then you would understand my chips. Hahahaha. The Chinese use ‘five Chinese spice’ to coat theirs so I used Nigerian 5 spice to coat mine and make it more Nigerian. Cheeky I know but it worked perfectly well. All hail the almighty My Active Kitchen Suya spice suya spice. It worked perfectly with the fried chips. I’m not surprised really as I use suya spice in my roasted yam. So here is to the simplest food in life with a yummy experience you wouldn’t forget in a while.
