5 Great Syn-Free Slimming World Meal Ideas Using Chicken
Are You Looking for a Syn-Free Slimming World Chicken Recipe?
There have been so many occasions when I have looked in my fridge or freezer to find tasty offerings, but didn't find anything I wanted to eat. Unfortunately, there are even fewer foods that are Slimming-World-Friendly. That's when I usually turn to the internet for some inspiration.
I know that chicken will always be an easy option to cook, and I find that it is usually the most versatile of all the meats too. No matter what type of dish I fancy, chicken will nearly always work, or I'll find a recipe including it as the main component. Plus, nearly everyone likes this delicious and cheap meat, don't they?
When I'm looking for main-meal recipes, I also like to try to find the lowest syn ones I can, or like in this case, syn-free chicken recipes. That way I can save all those syns for something a little more naughty, like something to curb that sweet-tooth craving or maybe for a glass of wine or two on the weekend.
So here are just 5 of the best syn-free slimming world chicken recipes I have found recently. Use the links provide to get to the recipes if you fancy testing them out for yourself!
1. Chicken and Chickpea Curry
This is an amazingly tasty and hearty-looking chicken curry recipe from She Cooks, She Eats. A chicken curry is very standard in most peoples' cooking arsenal, so a this recipe should be a big hit for many people. What is great about this dish is that it is something a little bit different, not your usual tikka or korma but a tomato-based one packed with super free and free extras, too. And if that isn't enough to sway you, it is also a one pot wonder! Yep, all made in just one pot, meaning less washing up!
2. Chicken Pappardelle
I love a good pasta dish, and I could probably categorically say that pasta is my favourite thing to eat. I will pretty much take it in any form, with any sauce and any added ingredients. I've even been known to eat it with just a little added butter and salt after a night out! I found this fresh tasty looking recipe on Good To Know, a brilliant recipe site with tonnes of other great recipes, so check it out for lots more inspiration.

3. Butternut Squash Stuffed with Spicy Chicken and Rice
Ok, so not everyone is a fan of squash, so this may not be to everyone's tastes, but I love the stuff! I found this super-healthy, syn-free recipe on Slimming Eats. Again, this is another great site if you are dieting as there are a tonne of helpful recipes on here. It is really worth checking out or booking marking for a later date. This recipe is pretty easy to prepare it just takes a little time, but the end results are totally worth it—look how tasty it looks! I'm pretty sure you could do this on a smaller scale with marrows of some sort or use the filling ingredients to stuff peppers instead if you would rather.
4. KFC-Style Chicken
This is a very popular recipe that seems to be on everyones 'to-make' list. Slimming World Syn-Free KFC-style chicken is on my list to make next week actually, and I'll be following the recipe I found on Fat Girl Skinny. I have seen a few different variations on how to make the breadcrumb-style mixture, many use Smash, but this one is using couscous. People seem to rave about the syn-free KFC recipes, as they taste better than really KFC and are obviously so much healthier. So if you're a fan of KFC, these have to be worth a go.

A good casserole is great all year-round and always a hearty filling meal for the whole family. Plus, it is usually pretty cheap which is great as Slimming World can sometimes get a little pricey. And, of course, this one is syn-free which makes it just a little bit better. This one is crammed full of super-free that it is bound to help boost your weight-loss and that means you can have a nice big portion and feel no guilt at all.
