If you’re looking for a Low Syn, Low Point, Low Calorie Chinese Chicken Curry that tastes like the real deal, then this is the ideal recipe for you!
We often get asked over on our Facebook group what people can make with the Mayflower Chinese Curry Sauce, so we came up with this Slimming World, Weight Watchers and Calorie Counting friendly, Chinese Chicken Curry in the slow cooker!
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 👍
This Chinese Chicken Curry recipe is ridiculously easy. Seriously – it’s 4 steps long & that’s it. What’s more is that you just pop it all in the slow cooker!
You can use what ever meat you like, we used diced chicken thighs as thighs are cheaper than fillets and we think they have loads more flavour!
You could use pork, chicken, beef, or even leave the meat out and just add lots and lots of veggies.
We used mushrooms, frozen peppers, baby corn and onions. Feel free to omit/add more or less of any of these – anything goes!
We love our Chinese Chicken Curry with half chips, half rice and a load of stir fried veg on the side!
How many Syns are in this Low Syn Chinese Chicken Curry?
Mayflower Curry Sauce Mix comes in a 255g pack, which makes up 9 portions. This means that one portion is roughly 28.3 of the curry mix.
The Mayflower Curry Sauce Mix is on the Slimming World app at 4 Syns per portion (28.3g). We have used 85g of Mayflower Curry Sauce Mix In this Chinese Chicken Curry recipe, which is equal to 3 portions (according to the pack instructions and the SW app).
At 4 Syns per portion the whole recipe works out at 12 Syns. As there is plenty to bulk out this curry (the chicken and veg etc) there will be plenty to feed 4 people, which means that the Syns work out at 3 Syns per portion of Chinese Chicken Curry.
You can serve it with a whole heap of Speed Foods too – why not choose something from our Slimming World Speed Food List?
This Chinese Chicken Curry would be suitable for Slimming World Extra Easy SP if you leave out the peas.
