Butter chicken has long been a favourite in this house – it’s probably one of the reasons for our bulging waistlines. Here’s our Slimming World friendly 2 Syn Creamy Butter Chicken!
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 👍
2 Syns a portion and the recipe below makes 6 portions in all. Best thing, there is no real butter in this!
We go through phases of food, and whilst Chinese used to be our usual “go-to” take away, it would be Indian in the winter. There’s nothing better than a mouth full of creamy, tomato-y heat on a cold winters day, right?
Making curry yourself usually involves a jar of sauce, but there’s no jars here!
All you need is a pan and a food processor or a stick blender. Really really easy and super fast, you can have this on the table in less than 30 minutes!

For the chicken breasts, I’d urge you to get hold of our Protein Food Shop hampers. They’re packed full of the BEST quality meat we’ve ever come across from an online butcher. The hamper is incredible value for money, working out FAR cheaper than the supermarket.
The chicken breasts are lovely, plump and don’t have that horrid vac-pack smell when you open them up!
We also have a few exclusive hamper deals available, so it’s well worth checking them out.
The Secret Ingredient!
We usually use Almonds for this and blend them until fine. The only issue with using almonds is how high they are in syns! 50g is 15 syns, which is CRAZY! So instead of using almonds we use Sukrin Almond flour. At just 16 syns per 100g it is SO much lower in syns, as they de-fatten the almonds, it’s all very very clever!
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 Olive or Coconut Oil flavours are ideal for this 2 Syn Creamy Butter Chicken recipe.
Where is the Speed?
Those of you following Slimming World might be wondering where the speed food is?
We usually serve this with some vegetables, otherwise there would be no speed at all – which is not good! Place some Cauliflower, spinach, courgette, broccoli into a bowl, cover with cling film and microwave on high for 5-8 minutes. Then add this to the curry.
