If you are baking your chips, preheat your oven to 170C for a fan oven.
Slice the sweet potatoes in half length ways. Then slice the halves of sweet potatoes length ways to make chip shape pieces, these will be roughly 0.25cm in width.
Heat the dollop of coconut oil in a big low sided frying pan (you’ll need one with a lid) on a high heat. Add the salt, pepper and thyme to the oil.
Once the oil has melted, add the sweet potato chips to the pan. Stir until all the chips are evenly covered in oil.
If you are baking your chips, transfer to a baking tray and put in the oven to bake for 30-40mins and put your feet up.
If you are frying your chips. Leave the chips in the pan. Turn the heat down to medium and then pop the lid on. Cook with the lid on for about 5 minutes until the first side has browned.
Turn the chips over so the next side can be cooked. Pop the lid back on the pan and cook again for a further 5 minutes on a medium heat.
Once this side has cooked, take the lid off and turn the chips again so that all the chips have been cooked on all sides. Leave the lid off and continue to fry until the chips are crispy and cooked all the way through. Should take a further 5-10 minutes.
To check the chips are cooked, using a knife skewer one of the fatter chips, if the blade goes in and out easily they are cooked.
