Crunchy Honey BBQ Chicken Bites (Low Syn Fakeaway)

When I uploaded this recipe to Instagram, the lovely @slimforyourlife commented that she thought it was a cheat meal at first glance, and honestly it felt like it! However, that couldn’t have been further from reality! This whole recipe, which serves two, is just six syns…which makes it just 3 syns per portion!

If you ask me, that’s not half bad for something which tastes like it’s straight out of the kitchen at TGI Fridays! I used Honey BBQ Sauce for this recipe, but you could just use regular BBQ sauce because you’re adding honey anyway! 

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 1 Pack Diced Chicken (or 2 chicken breasts cut into small chunks)
  • 8tbsp Smash
  • 1 Chicken Oxo Cube
  • 1tsp Mild Chilli Powder
  • 1tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1tbsp Clear Honey
  • 3tbsp BBQ Sauce (any kind)

Instructions

  1. Pre heat your oven to 200 degrees. Spray a baking tray with Fry Light.
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl, and whisk the eggs into a separate bowl.
  3. One at a time, dip your chicken pieces into the egg and then into the dry ingredients. Repeat this twice for each piece.
  4. Place the pieces on the baking tray and spray with more Fry Light.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, turning over after about 20 minutes (or when they are no longer stuck to the bottom of the tray) to help brown on multiple sides.
  6. Meanwhile, mix together your honey and BBQ sauce.
  7. When the chicken is cooked, tip into the honey and BBQ mixture and mix until each piece is coated in sticky mixture.
  8. Serve whilst still hot!

      18/05/2016 at 8:02 am Thanks Emma! Before I started Slimming World I'd never even heard of Smash, but it's ideal for making things like this which feel like their deep fried equivilents without any of the fat! Thanks for commenting :)

      18/05/2016 at 8:09 am Thanks Mandy! It's a strangely wonderful ingredient, I use it to make KFC style chicken too and to thicken gravy and sauces instead of flour! If you'd have told me that I'd be using Smash 9 months ago before I joined Slimming World I probably would have laughed though! Loving the link up this week, it's looking fab! x

      23/05/2016 at 8:15 am Thanks Martin! It's such a great idea isn't it! Personally I prefer it to breadcrumbs, because with breadcrumbs everything feels like a chicken goujon (which I love) but it doesn't lead to a lot of variety! Let me know how you get on with it :)

      18/07/2016 at 1:14 pm Hi Abigail, no problem! It's powdered mashed potato, the instant kind where you add water and it makes mash. I've never used it as mash but it makes an amazing coating when dry! Hope that helps :)

    20/05/2017 at 4:20 pm Hello just wanted to know if you can mix a different sauce say tomato sauce for instance, instead of BBQ. Thanks I love this chicken.

    27/01/2018 at 5:16 pm Hi, I'm planning on making this tonight but only have garlic salt. Could I use this instead of garlic powder or will it be too salty? Thanks

      29/01/2018 at 11:17 am Hi Emma, that might make it a bit salty but you could always mix in a bit of fresh garlic instead!
