Part of the reason this Syn free Chicken Shawarma is so quick and easy is because of the way we cooked it.

Tefal sent over an OptiGrill so we put our #GrillSkills into action and came up with these tasty alternatives to a takeaway kebab.

We cooked this on our Tefal OptiGrill, which senses how thick the meat is, and cooks it to your liking automatically.

Sounds a little too good to be true… right? That’s what we thought, but oh no – it makes it so much easier to cook meat.

We’ve made a few recipes using the Tefal Optigrill, and I can honestly say it has given perfect results each time.

It’s pretty damn impressive – which is not something we say often about anything!

It’s nice to not have to worry about ruining a really expensive steak, or a whole pack of chicken fillets, by overcooking them.

The Tefal Optigrill is also handy to use when you fancy grilled food, but don’t fancy getting the BBQ out. It’s proved particularly useful in this rather wet and windy June!

The bonus is that the Optigrill is ridiculously easy to clean. The plates come off, and are dishwasher safe.

As ever, 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 Chicken Shawarma recipe.
