Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
Place the kettle chips in a large bowl.
Melt the butter in a frying pan. Add the garlic and parsley, then season generously. Pour in the chips, tossing to combine. Tip out on to a baking sheet and cook for 2-3 minutes until golden and sizzling.
Place the cream cheese in a bowl and mash with a fork, then gradually pour in the soured cream, mixing until smooth after each addition. Stir in the sun-dried tomatoes and chives, then season to taste.

Remove the kettle chips from the oven and tip on to kitchen paper to drain any excess butter, then quickly pile around the bowl of soured cream dip to serve.
