We recently paid a visit to Wagamama for a bit of a treat, and we absolutely LOVED the Firecracker chicken they had on the menu. So we’ve recreated this to make it a Slimming World friendly Half Syn Firecracker Chicken!
We have been asked by Tefal to create some recipes using their Actifry, and this is one of them!
It’s such a versatile kitchen gadget, and we love making the Half Syn Firecracker Chicken as it makes it such an easy recipe to follow. No stirring, no messing, the Actifry does all the hard work for you!
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
As good as the restaurant Firecracker Chicken tastes, the Syn value is really high.
This means we’ve had to work really hard to create the same beautiful flavour to our Half Syn Firecracker Chicken, without adding to the Syn value.
It’s the perfect dish to feel like you’re dining out in the comfort of your own home!
If you haven’t got an Actifry, this can also be made using a pan. We’ve included the stove-top recipe too!

How many Syns are in this Half Syn Firecracker Chicken?
This Half Syn Firecracker Chicken is half a Syn per portion, based on the recipe being enough for four portions.
The Syns are present in some of the key ingredients of the dish, such as the tomato ketchup and the tamarind paste.
You can serve this Half Syn Firecracker Chicken with rice, or even some Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chips!
How do I make this Half Syn Firecracker Chicken?
Add the chilli, garlic, sweetener, tomato ketchup, tamarind paste, oyster sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce and rice vinegar into a bowl. Add the black pepper to season and stir the contents of the bowl well.
Add the chicken breast to the bowl and mix it all together.
Once the chicken breasts are coated in the marinade, cover the bowl with cling film and chill in the fridge for one hour.
Take the bowl of marinated chicken out of fridge and place into your Actifry, reserving the remaining marinade in a bowl.
Set the Actifry to cook for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes is up, add the chopped onions and Frylight and set to cook for a further 5 minutes.
Once this is complete, add the stock, the remaining marinade, peppers, spring onions, chilli and mange tout and cook for a further 10 minutes.
Once this is complete, it’s ready to serve!
