The exact timings for the microwave stage depend on the amount of potato, the thickness of the chips and the watt rating of your microwave.
1. Slice the potatoes into chips (french fries). Place on a plate in a radial fashion, ie around the edge with each chip pointing toward the centre of the plate.
2. Microwave on HIGH for about 4 minutes, or until the chips are soft and bendy but not too dried on the outside. Move them about after 2 minutes and remove any smaller ones as they become soft.
3. When all the chips are cooked, place on a baking tray and grill (broil) until browned, moving about and turning over so that all sides get exposed to the direct heat.
4. Serve immediately (I mean it).
