Before we get to the Syn Free BBQ Chicken Steaks… I have to mention that we didn’t cook these on any old BBQ, we cooked them on a Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ.

I can honestly say, I’ve never been keen on gas BBQ’s until this Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ came along.

Cooking on gas outside is just boring – you don’t get any of that smokeyness associated with charcoal.

With the Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ you get the best of both worlds. You can use it either with or without charcoal.

Charcoal I hear you cry… Charcoal takes ages to light! Not with this BBQ!!

Simply load the tray with charcoal, then pop in the tray, light the gas for 15 minutes and et voila – your charcoal is lit and ready to grill.

You can enjoy your Syn Free BBQ Chicken Steaks in no time at all.

Garlic and herb Syn Free BBQ Chicken Steaks | Slimming World garlic and herb

Step 1

Mix together the garlic & herb seasoning, lemon juice and yogurt in a decent sized bowl.

Step 2

Put one of the chicken breasts on a chopping board (thick part furthest away from you). Place one hand on top of the chicken and slice through the middle of the breast, horizontally with a sharp knife. Don’t slice all the way through. If you do you won’t be able to open it out and flatten it slightly. Repeat this with the remaining chicken.

Step 3

Add the chicken breasts to the marinade and coat them well.

Step 4

Take the chicken out of the bowl, put them in an airtight bag and refrigerate for at least an hour (or until your ready to use them)

Step 5

Cook on the BBQ for about 8 minutes, turning halfway through cooking. Check the temperature using a food thermometer (the meat should reach 170°F or 75°C) and make sure it’s not pink inside before serving.

The Chicken

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.
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 Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free BBQ Chicken Steaks recipe.
