Syn Free 20 Minute Whole Chicken Recipe
The pressure cooker is a great way to cook a whole chicken, as you end up with a tender, juicy, bird, and an amazing stock to use as a base for a sauce or gravy.
I checked with Slimming World and was told that as long as you remove all of the fat from the stock then you won’t have to syn it.
This recipe will take around 30-35 minutes to prepare and cook in the pressure cooker compared with over an hour in the oven. Of course the cooking time will vary slightly, depending on the size of chicken you are using.
A small chicken will take 20 minutes.
A medium chicken will take 25 minutes.
A large chicken will take 30 minutes.
As always, double check the internal temperature of the chicken before serving. You can do this with a food and meat thermometer like this one from Amazon.
To get the full flavour you should loosen the skin from the breast and rub some of the seasoning between the skin and the meat. Don’t worry if this makes the chicken breast look a little dark, it will be fine when you have removed the skin after cooking.
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 Rapeseed or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free 20 Minute Whole Chicken recipe.
