Syn Free Slimming World Hunters Chicken

If you enjoy cheese, BBQ sauce and bacon as much as I do, then this Syn Free Hunters Chicken is for you! If you’re in the mood for comfort food, and lets be honest who isn’t with the state of the world weather right now, then it’s probably time to melt some cheese and get stuck in. Not only is this dish syn free, but it’s pretty damn easy to make too.

Hunters Chicken Needs BBQ Sauce…

Of course it does, that’s basically what the dish is! But BBQ sauce from a bottle is synned, and that simply won’t do. For this recipe you make your own BBQ sauce, but before you start expecting it to be exactly like the Heinz version it’s not. It does however have all of that flavour with a whole lot more to boot. It also adds speed food to your dish which is never a bad thing! I’m only making this point because if I didn’t I know that there would inevitably be someone who gets upset that it’s not like the one that comes out of the bottle, but frankly this is SO MUCH nicer! Even my boyfriend, who is a purist when it comes to BBQ sauce, loved it and that’s a big endorsement if I do so say myself!

I baked my Hunters Chicken individually, you of course can bake them together but this way they are just so cute! If you’re looking for something equally adorable to cook yours in then I got my dishes from Boswell’s, I’m sure they still stock them. However, if you don’t have one locally you can get similarly sized ones on Amazon for about £5. I particularly like these small enamel ones.

Bit On The Side… 

Whether you’re serving them up individually (super cute if you’ve got people round for dinner by the way!) or making a big cheesy load of them together, one thing’s for certain and that is that Hunters Chicken goes great with chips! Oven baked chips are syn free on Slimming World, I make mine like this for the perfect crispy finish every time. That was the natural thing for me to make to go along side my chicken, as you can see they turned out scrummy. Even better, the BBQ sauce goes great with the chips and you’ve got plenty of sauce for dipping which basically means you’re winning at life with this meal!

Obviously you need to make sure you’re eating plenty of speed food too, so your Hunters Chicken should also be accompanied by a healthy helping of whichever speedy veg you fancy. I went with broccoli, a firm favourite in my house, which was also pretty great for dipping!
