Easy Peasy Chicken Caprese Salad

This recipe for Chicken Caprese Salad is a new favourite of mine because it is seriously packed full of flavour and I can’t stand a bland salad. The basil, garlic, lemon and oil (or apple cider vinegar if you’re making the syn free version) all come together to really bring out the flavours in the fresh tomatoes and compliment the chicken perfectly. The whole recipe is then offset by the creamy mozzarella and pulled together by the salad leaves, making it all in all a total success.  Continue Reading…


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…

Slimming World KFC Double Down Burger

Slimming World KFC Double Down Burger - Double Down Burger - Slimming World - Healthy - Fakeaway - Imitation

Unless you’ve been living under a rock in recent weeks, you’ll have seen that KFC have launched the Double Down Burger into the UK. Inevitably, as it’s only in stores for a limited time only, everyone seemed to go crazy for it and if I’m totally honest I went out and bought one…purely for research purposes…honestly 😉 Anyway, having tried it for myself and confirmed that yes, bacon and BBQ sauce sandwiched between two fried pieces of chicken is as good as it sounds, I decided to help myself avoid any future trips down fast food alley and create this Slimming World KFC Double Down Burger as a healthy and delicious alternative for any slimmers out there!  Continue Reading…
