Best Ever Low Syn Chicken Curry

Low Syn Chicken Curry - Slimming World - Healthy - Curry Recipe

When I was growing up, takeaway curries were a big family favourite. We’d order about a tonne of food and all dig in and share together. However, as I got older I found that takeaway curries really started to feel heavy and almost exhausting to eat. I still enjoyed one on occasion, but they most definitely became a treat as opposed to something I could enjoy all the time. I really started to miss them, particularly when I started on Slimming World until I realised that I could make incredibly delicious homemade curries without any of the guilt! This recipe for Low Syn Chicken Curry is a follow up to some of my previous curry recipes, and I can honestly say that it surpassed anything I’ve made in the past! Continue Reading…

This slow cooked chicken and butternut squash curry couldn’t be much simpler! Totally syn free it’s a true ‘dump and run’ recipe, and by that I mean you chuck it all in the slow cooker, give it a bit of a stir and leave it. It genuinely doesn’t require any more stress than that, and whilst you leave it to cook for three hours it probably takes no more than 10 minutes of actual hands on time. Moreover, it’s a seriously cheap recipe and feeds six (or makes six individual portions depending on your set up) for well under ┬ú1 per portion.  Continue Reading…

Grilled Chicken with Syn Free Sticky Asian Chilli & Garlic Sauce

I know what you’re thinking…syn free sticky sauce?! That’s impossible right?!? Well…no it’s not actually! At least, not with this recipe which is not only completely syn free but utterly delicious and full of flavour! 

The trick is to use a clever product called Xanthan Gum, which is a thickening agent! You can actually thank the ladies over at Pinch of Nom, one of my all time favourite Slimming World blogs, who made me realise that Xanthan Gum is syn free! It’s an ingredient I used to use a lot in sauces, soups, currys etc… but until now had thought that it would contain syns. I was pretty over the moon when I realised that it didn’t though, and so decided I immediately had to restock and create a Slimming World friendly dish using it. You can pick it up on Amazon here. I’ll be using it a lot going forward, that much’s for sure!   Continue Reading…
