You can use this spice mix on it’s own to season (it’s great on wedges) or you can add something to it give that crispy coating.
We like to use Panko Breadcrumbs because you get more bang for your buck.
Panko is a Japanese-style breadcrumb traditionally used as a coating for deep-fried foods, and is made from bread without crusts. As it’s a bigger crumb than other breadcrumbs it goes further.
It can be found in the Oriental aisle of most supermarkets, or you can get it on Amazon .
All you need to do is mix 1 tbsp of the spice mix with 25g of Panko (for 4.5 – 5 syns depending on the brand). This will coat 4 medium sized chicken breasts.
There are also many other things you could use (Smash, Crushed Rice Crispies, Breadcrumbed Wholemeal Roll, Cous Cous, Quinoa, Bulgar Wheat for example).
However, some of these are generally considered a ‘tweak’ by Slimming World (any free food not used as a substitute for something else eg Cous Cous, Smash etc) and should be Synned accordingly.
Some people prefer not to Syn these ingredients when used in this way, so it’s entirely up to you.
This recipe makes a decent amount of seasoning, so you can keep it in an airtight container to use next time. We always have a bag in the cupboard.
Don’t forget, the Syn value of this dish will vary depending on what coating you add to the seasoning. The values we have provided below are using Panko Breadcrumbs.
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 Avocado Oil flavours are ideal for this Low Syn KFC Fakeaway recipe.
