Syn Free Chicken and Mushroom Fakeaway | Slimming World

We used to enjoy the ‘odd’ takeaway before Slimming World. Now prefer to make our own Slimming World versions of our favourite takeaway meals. This Syn Free Chicken and Mushroom Fakeaway is the latest addition to our Fakeaway collection.

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 👍

The average Chinese takeaway can cost you anything from 6.5 to 30 syns per 550g serving.

So, why not try making your own syn free or low syn version yourself. It means you can save those syns for something more important, like wine or chocolate rather than on the meal itself!

    1. Hi Kate
      It’s 274cal per portion. We’ve only recently started adding calorie counts to the recipes, and as this was an older one the calories hadn’t been added. I have updated the recipe

  1. Does the 10 mins to prep include chopping and slicing all the ingediants? I can’t be the only one that needs about 45 mins to chop and dice/slice stuff?

    1. My knife skills are nowhere near as good as Kates – and this is how long it usually takes me. Saying that,my workspace is very organised. Just go at your own pace as you don’t want to injure yourself 👍

    1. Hi Debbie
      I use the Knorr Stockpots, as I find they have a good flavour. As they’re jellified, they melt easily into the dish.

  2. I made this tonight and waited for the stock to reduce and it didnt. Ended up with veg cooked more than I want and not a thicker sauce but was still very tasty. Let me know what you think I did wrong 😀

    1. Hi Lorraine
      If this happens, you can remove the chicken/veg briefly (keep warm) and simmer the sauce on a rolling boil for a few minutes until it reduces sufficiently. This will avoid any over cooked veg. 🙂

    1. Hi Kelly
      You can’t taste it in the finished dish, but if you really aren’t keen you can leave it out. It will probably mean that the sauce is slightly runnier, but you can reduce it slighty if you need to. 🙂

    1. Hi Brenda, rice is a Free Food on Slimming World so it wouldn’t add any Syns. The calories for the recipe don’t include rice so it would be more to add some 🙂
