If you’re shopping for your chicken at the supermarket try and find some nice big chicken breasts. One of the issues that I see time and time again popping up in conversations about SlimmingWorld is the issue of cooking for partners or families when you’re following a healthy eating plan
I’ve been making a lot with beef and lamb lately, but what about chicken. 8 skinned and boned chicken thighs (I only used 5 because there’s two of us and didn’t want to buy more). 8 slices of lean bacon (1 per chicken thigh). Now season each chicken thigh with peri peri seasoning or similar and wrap a slice of bacon around each and sear in the dish over high heat for 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from the heat and place in the garlic, tomatoes, stock pot, water, balsamic vinegar, rosemary and seasoning then place the lid on top and bake for 40 minutes. Once the time’s up, stir in the beans, place in the oven without the lid, turn up the heat to 220 degrees and cook for a final 30minutes. 8 skinned and boned chicken thighs (I only used 5 because there’s two of us and didn’t want to buy more). 8 slices of lean bacon (1 per chicken thigh)
I love Indian snacky things like Pakoras anyway so to find a syn free version made me really happy. I made these ages ago but never got round to posting the recipe, since starting work I've found it hard to find things to take for my lunch and to keep me going throughout the day so I've been looking for some SlimmingWorld friendly snacks that I wont feel guilty for eating
I also don’t like drowning my bolognese in passata or too much liquid and by using just a little bit of liquid added gradually as the dish simmers, and allowing the tomatoes to reduce and create their own sauce, you end up with a thick, rich bolognese, full of flavour
Syn Free Chicken Club, Syn Free Mexican Chipotle Meatball and Syn Free Chicken Tandoori. There are a few steps to making these, and they do take a while due to the proving of the dough and marinading of the chicken – but it is worth it
Extra Easy Syn Value- Free. Meanwhile, slice the chicken breasts into small, bite size pieces. I was watching something the other day, I can't even remember what, and they were eating something off the KFC menu, 'Famous Bowls- Creamy mashed potatoes, sweet corn and bite-sized chunks of crispy chicken are layered together then drizzled with home-style gravy and topped with a perfect blend of three shredded cheeses'
