Sticky Sesame Chicken Pieces

Sticky Sesame Chicken Pieces

I’m a huge fan of ‘Fakeaways’ (homemade, healthy takeaways!) because not only are they better for you but they usually taste better too! As great as it is to get a greasy takeaway you’ve got to face the fact that they’re just never going to be good for you, so if you can get better quality and better tasting food by making it at home then why wouldn’t you! If you love Fakeaways as much as I do then this Sticky Sesame Chicken Pieces recipe is going to be perfect for you! Find the recipe and video at the end of the post.

Is This Slimming World Friendly?

Absolutely! This fakeaway is just 2.25 syn per portion (4.5 syns for the whole recipe). The syns in this Stick Sesame Chicken Pieces recipe come from the sesame seeds (1 syn per teaspoon) and the tablespoon of honey (2.5 syns), so it fits perfectly into your Slimming World lifestyle!

Is This Recipe A Tweak?

If you’ve scrolled to the end already and seen that the chicken in this recipe is coated with smash to make it nice and crispy you may be turned your head to the heavens and begun lamenting that it’s a tweak! Well you can calm down, because it’s not, I promise! If you’re unsure of what a tweak is on Slimming World you can read my comprehensive definition here.

Sticky Sesame Chicken Pieces

A tweak, simply put, is something which uses a free food in a way that it isn’t meant to be used in place of a non-free food. Whilst this does technically do that, it uses the smash as part of a main meal with plenty of protein and veg, making it balanced an means that you’re not in danger of overeating this particular free food substitution. So long as you eat this as A MAIN MEAL, this recipe is NOT A TWEAK! Slimming World specify examples similar to this on their website so you really don’t have to worry!

    23/05/2017 at 2:56 pm Just wondering, would this be ok to make in advance and freeze? I prefer to batch cook to make my life easier during the week when I'm at work!

      23/05/2017 at 3:25 pm I think it would be OK although I've never tried it myself so I can't guarantee! I can't see a reason why it wouldn't be OK though :)

    23/05/2017 at 8:42 pm Gorgeous recipe! I could scoff a big bowl of these. I am a huge fan of the fakeaway, I am forever making my own curries, Chinese dishes, pizzas etc. They are so much healthier than takeaways - and way nicer AND cheaper! And I can usually make them in the time it takes to have one delivered, anyway! What's not to like? Eb x
