Salt & Chilli Chicken | Slimming World

This Salt & Chilli Chicken is Syn Free

This recipe is by no means a new one and not even close to my idea. I’m typically useless when it comes to discovering useful tweaks on Slimming World… I put this down to my lack of any creativity but I’ve been able to apply the Smash tweak from this recipe to a few other meals lately which has been handy.

The salt & chilli chicken is a real winner for a weekend dinner as it does taste and give vibes like you’d get off a cheeky takeaway.  I was able to defrost some chicken from my last Moy Park haul to make this so it was a real frugal meal with the chicken costing out at 50p for all you see above.


2 x Chicken Breasts cut into Strips (or equivalent)

120g Instant Mash (any brand – I use this one)

2 medium eggs (or 1 large egg + splash milk)

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1 tsp chilli powder

1/2 tsp chilli flakes

1 tsp garlic powder

1 onion, chopped

1 bell pepper, chopped




This couldn’t be easier! Preheat oven to 180C.

Beat the eggs and set in a dish for dipping. I used two eggs this week and had a fair bit left over so if using large eggs, I’d say one would definitely do. Mix the instant mash with the seasonings and sit in a different shallow dish.

Take a bit of chicken, dip it in the egg and then coat in the smash mixture. Once coated set on a baking tray. When all coated, put in the oven for 25mins.

Chop the onion and pepper into whichever size you prefer – I really like them big and chunky in this recipe. Fry both in the pan for 10 mins at a medium heat with another 1/4 tsp of salt and more chilli flakes if you would like the extra heat.

I always serve with rice and a low syn satay sauce made with some peanut butter, stock, black pepper and a tsp of sesame oil.
