Easy Peasy - Low Carb - Chilli Chicken - Recipe - Slimming World - Syn Free - Keto - Ketogenic - High Protein - Healthy - Weight Loss

I love Mexican food and chilli is one of my favourite dishes, but forever I’ve only ever made it using beef. It’s the traditional way and it’s definitely one of those ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ kind of meals! However, that was before I discovered that Chilli Chicken was a thing and I simply had to try it. That’s when I came up with this Easy Peasy Low Carb Chilli Chicken recipe, which combines all of the delicious flavours of traditional chilli with lean chicken instead of beef. It’s packed with veggies, super low carb and high protein and literally bursting with flavour. You can eat it on its own, or enjoy it with some tasty Cauliflower Rice to keep things low carb!

Keto: Counting The Macros In This Dish

I have recently decided to try and bring elements of the Keto diet into my meal plans, primarily focusing on eating fewer carbs and sugar and more protein. This recipe is a prime example of a recipe that is not only Slimming World friendly but also suitable for someone on the Keto diet! Whilst these two plans are obviously compatible, there is no need to do them both together, I’m just trying to boost my new year’s losses a tad. To that end, here is the breakdown of Macro Nutrients for this Low Carb Chilli Chicken, I have also included the calorie count, although I do not personally count calories.

Low Carb Chilli Chicken Macros Breakdown – per serving (serves 6)

  • Fat – 3.8g 
  • Carbs – 9.6g
  • Protein – 36.7g
  • Calories – 230g

As you can see from the breakdown of macronutrients above, this recipe not only has a great ratio of carbs to protein, it also fits well within a limit of (for example) 20g of carbs per day. Anyone who follows the Keto diet will know that the quantity of different macronutrients you have during the day is very much a personal decision based on how your body reacts to carbs, but no matter what your daily breakdown is, this recipe for Low Carb Chilli Chicken should fall well within it.

Meal Prep: Low Carb Chilli Chicken 

Not only is this recipe suitable for both the Slimming World and Keto diets, but it is also a fantastic meal prep dish no matter what your healthy eating structure is! Meal prep is an essential part of life for so many people who are trying to stay on the straight and narrow when it comes to eating. Removing the temptation to shop for unhealthy lunches or snacks at work can be an important factor when sticking to a healthy diet, so recipes like this come in handy! This recipe makes enough for six portions and can be kept in the fridge or frozen. Although some people aren’t keen on reheating chicken, I personally have never had an issue with doing so (although please stick to what you feel comfortable doing) and this recipe would work perfectly with some microwave cauliflower rice or steamed rice which can be easily put together at work. No matter how you decide to enjoy this Low Carb Chilli Chicken, you can be sure that everyone else in the office will be getting jealous!

Making Low Carb Chilli Chicken

I do hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do, it has become a firm favourite in my house and I regularly make it for meal prep lunches. I’ve found that the trick to making this super juicy and full of flavour is to bake the seasoned chicken separately to the chilli sauce, and then shred it and add it in at the end. This keeps the chicken moist, adds another layer of flavour from the coating on the chicken itself, and saves time as you can have the sauce and the chicken on the go at the same time! You can shred your chicken with two forks, or if you want to feel like Wolverine you can grab yourself a set of these Bear Claws which are not only super satisfying to use, but are way more effective than a pair of forks!
