We were asked to come up with a buffet version of our 1 Syn Chicken Satay recipe, by someone in our Facebook Group and here it is! Half Syn Chicken Satay Skewers.

Traditional Chicken Satay is a bit of a problem if you’re following a diet plan like Slimming World or Weight Watchers.

It usually contains a load of peanuts and/or peanut butter, coconut milk and oil. All of which contribute to a massive amount of carbs and fat.

These Half Syn Chicken Satay Skewers does not.

Considering a tablespoon of Peanut Butter can come in at as many as 5 syns,Half Syn Chicken Satay Skewers for less than a syn is a miracle!

There are two parts to these Half Syn Chicken Satay Skewers;

  1. Marinade the Chicken – you could use Beef instead
  2. Make the sauce

So how do we make the Half Syn Chicken Satay Skewers more Slimming World friendly?

We replace the coconut milk that’s usually used in Satay, with Alpro Coconut Drink.

You can enjoy 600ml of this for your HEA, but we’re going to syn it.

The last thing you want to be doing when at a party eating a buffet is keeping track of your A’s and B’s!

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 Coconut or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Half Syn Chicken Satay Skewers recipe.

Then we replaced the synful peanut butter with something called PB2.

How many Syns are in these Half Syn Chicken Satay Skewers?

Syn values of these Half Syn Chicken Satay Skewers are really low! The Chicken on the skewers are syn free – the Syns are in the sauce. You’ll get approx 33 tbsp of sauce, so if you use a tbsp per skewer it comes to 0.4 syns each. We’ll round up and call it half.

As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. Slimming World have confirmed what this change means.

Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend members count 0.5 Syn per tbsp. If using smaller amounts, like a pinch or teaspoon, there’s no need to worry about Syns at all.

The recipe for the sauce for these Half Syn Chicken Satay Skewers uses 3 tablespoons of sweetener and you will get about 33 tablespoon of sauce out of the whole batch. If you work on  1 tablespoon per skewer (which is more than enough) that’s less than a tenth of a teaspoon of sweetener in each tablespoon of sauce. This means there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

  • 600ml of Alpro Coconut Drink – 6 Syns
  • 4 tbsp P2B – 4 Syns
  • 2 tbsp of Cornflour – 2 syns
  • 3 tbsp sweetener – See above for more info

What is PB2?

PB2 is a powdered peanut butter, that is made with peanuts that are slow-roasted and pressed to remove the fat.

PB2 is all natural, has no artificial sweeteners or preservatives & even has the same consistency and flavour of full-fat peanut butter!

You just mix it with double the amount of water, pretty simple eh?

You can find it on Amazon, and they even make a Chocolate Peanut Butter, but obviously, it’s not suitable for this recipe!

    1. Hi Becky,

      It might do, though you only need a tiny weeny amount, and it make change the consistency to how it would be with cornflour 😊

    1. Hi Lauren
      Apologies for any confusion. It’s a tbsp of the spice mix to marinate the chicken. I’ve amended the recipe! Thanks for getting in touch.

  1. Really enjoyed this only thing I would do though is put less sweetener in. I would definitely make it again though. I love making pinch of nom recipes keep it up guys

    1. Hi Helen
      Thanks for getting in touch. Obviously personal preference can vary hugely, so adapting the recipe to suit you is a great idea! 🙂

  2. Hiya,
    on the recipe it says 4tbsp P2B made up with 8tbsp water which is double, on the jar it says make up to a paste with half the amount of water – so 4tbsp with 2tbsp water.
    would 8tbsp not make it really watery?
    many thanks

    1. Hi Louise
      The instructions on the jar are to reconstitute it as peanut butter, which is pretty thick and claggy in texture. We’re making a dipping sauce for this recipe, so it needs to be runnier.

    1. Hi Jodi
      You need to scroll back up the recipe card a bit – there’s a section labelled ‘Spice Mix’ in the ingredients list! 😉

  3. Hi
    If I wanted to use the app to as my Healthy Extra how would I re work the syn value?
    Thank you

    Love your recipes!!

    1. Hi Clare
      If you scroll down to the recipe card, you’ll see that we list the Alpro Coconut drink as 600mls for HEA or 6 Syns.
      So glad you enjoy the recipes! 🙂

  4. Hi
    I’ve clicked on the spice mix and it doesn’t say what this is, is it just the average mixed spice which you buy at most super markets please?

    1. Hi Kirsty
      You need to scroll down to the recipe card, where you’ll see a sub-heading that says ‘Spice Mix’. This lists all the spices that you need to blend together to make the mix. 🙂

    1. Hi Melanie,

      We’ve not tried it with Xanthan gum – you’d need to try it with just a tiny amount at a time and whisk it in thoroughly. Let us know how you get on!

    1. Hi Bryony,

      If you pop the sauce ingredients into a calorie calculator, and then divide between the number of portions, you should get the correct amount 😊
