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, then it’s probably time to melt some cheese and get stuck in. Not only is this dish syn free, but it’s super easy, satisfying and delicious.
Hunters Chicken Needs BBQ Sauce…
BBQ sauce from a bottle is synned, and that simply won’t do for a syn free Hunters Chicken…obviously! That’s why, for this recipe, you make your own BBQ sauce. It is tangy, sweet, delicious and easy to make. Best of all, it’s a much healthier BBQ sauce than you would ever find in a bottle and as such goes perfectly with this syn free chicken dinner.
Not only that, but it also adds speed food to your dish which is never a bad thing! You may be feeling some trepidation about whether or not you can switch from your traditional bottled BBQ sauce but I promise you, if you try this you won’t regret it one bit!
I like to bake my syn free Hunters Chicken in individual dishes to ensure that they remain syn free and that each portion is easily served up. If you prefer, you can bake them together which works perfectly if you’re looking for a quick dinner for the whole family or if you’re meal prepping for the week ahead.
You can find similar dishes to the one I’ve used here.
Can Syn Free Hunters Chicken Be Frozen?
If you are looking to meal prep this delicious syn free dinner, then go right ahead! However, my suggestion would be to leave off the cheese when you cook them ahead of time and add it on when you reheat at a later date.
If you are cooking more than a couple of days in advance, you can absolutely freeze this recipe. Simply make sure that you defrost completely before reheating and that your dish is piping hot all the way through before serving.
Bit On The Side…
Whether you’re serving them up individually (super cute if you’ve got people round for dinner!) 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.
My crispy oven baked chips were the perfect side dish for this mouthwatering syn free meal. 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!
