It’s always good to provide something substantial to eat at kids’ parties, to soak up all the lollies and fizzy drinks.
Serve these easy, oven-baked chips and chicken with aioli dip and lots of napkins.

  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • Spray oil
  • 32 chicken nibbles
  • 1 bag oven-ready fries
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line two baking trays with baking paper.
  2. In a large zip-lock bag or bowl, combine flour, salt, paprika, cumin and brown sugar. Spray the chicken lightly with oil, then add to the bag and toss until evenly coated.
  3. Arrange chicken on a lined tray and bake for 20-30 minutes until golden and crispy.
  4. Meanwhile, spread fries out on the second tray and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.
  5. Serve in noodle boxes or individual dishes.

About Jo Wilcox

"I have had a love of food my whole life. Lucky for me my mum allowed me to play in the kitchen from the very beginning – from sitting up on the bench watch her peeling peaches for preserving or planning dinner parties from her many Womans Weekly Cookbooks. Starting in my local beach café, I went onto professional cookery training and my big foodie OE working as a professional chef and nanny. At 21 I launched my first restaurant. The following years saw me owning a gourmet cake and dessert shop and then a pasta deli before I discovered the world of food styling. Today I work in food styling making food look beautiful and tasty in packaging and advertising shoots, as well as my most important role yet – Food Editor of New Zealand Woman’s Weekly. I aim to provide great meal solutions that are interesting and approachable, and of course gorgeous foodie photos that make you want to cook them! I love the feedback and the knowledge that people actually cook them and have great results. If I can give someone a love of cooking and enjoying family meal times and gatherings then my job is done!" See
