Half Syn Chicken Pad Thai | Slimming World-8

Recently Hellmann’s brought out a new tomato ketchup that is sweetened with honey and nothing else.

How mad is that? Well, it’s actually pretty damn good (and we go through bottles of the stuff!).

We were tasked with creating a dish using this Hellmann’s Tomato Ketchup Sweetened with Honey.

If you’re a regular reader of the site you’ll know that we like to try something a bit different. Playing it safe can be so boring sometimes!

So instead of going for the usual burger, hot dog or Marie Rose sauce type of affair, we decided to go all out and recreate one of our favourite dishes….Half Syn Chicken Pad Thai.

Now, there is a debate over whether or not a traditional Pad Thai should have ketchup in, but no matter which camp you fall into there’s no denying that this is one tasty recipe!!

The Hellmann’s Tomato Ketchup Sweetened with Honey contains 30% less sugar than other brands of ketchup.

It also contains a whopping 36% more tomatoes than the market leader standard tomato ketchup. Less sugar = all the better in my book!

It actually tastes fab too. I’ve preferred Hellmann’s Tomato Ketchup for a looooong time now, and it still tasty even with the recipe change.

What speed food can I put in this Half Syn Chicken Pad Thai?

Recipes like this are fabulous because you can really cram them with speed foods. I try and stick to half a plate of speed with every meal, so the more speed the better.

You can just use all of the things you have lying about in the fridge, that way you won’t waste anything.

Step 6

Whisk the eggs, then add to the frying pan and cook over a medium-high heat, stirring continuously until the eggs are scrambled. Don’t over cook them, it’s best to leave them a little wet.

Step 7

Add the spring onion and beansprouts and cook for a minute. Don’t overcook – or else your eggs will disappoint!

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight.

Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free!

The Sunflower or Rapeseed flavours are ideal for this Half Syn Chicken Pad Thai recipe.

  1. Hello i would like to make this but please could you tell me where i can get the pb2 powdered peanut butter from. Thanks.

    1. Hi Leah,
      Most large supermarkets stock powdered peanut butter now. It will be on the shelves with the other nut butters that are available. Other than supermarkets, it’s available from Holland and Barrett or Amazon.
