Like a chicken kebab? You will love this Slimming World Syn Free Chicken Shawarma. It’s ridiculously quick & easy to make – the ultimate fakeaway.
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 👍
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.

How many Syns are in this Slimming World Syn Free Chicken Shawarma?
This Syn Free Chicken Shawarma is only Syn free if you use your HEB on a wrap that counts as a Healthy Extra B choice.
There are quite a few that you can use, we used the Weight Watchers white wraps which come in packs of 6.
Please note, the Syn value of Weight Watchers Wraps has changed, but they are still an HEB option. However, if you do not use them as an HEB you should now Syn them at 6 Syns each.
If you don’t use the wrap as your HEB, then don’t forget to Syn it.

How do I make these Syn Free Chicken Shawarma?
The full recipe is at the bottom of this post, including a full list of ingredients and quantities.
Put the chicken strips in a large bowl, then add all the remaining ingredients (apart from the wraps!)
Spray with Frylight, then mix well so that all the chicken pieces are coated. Cover and place in the fridge.
Preheat the Tefal OptiGrill – Turn the grill on, select the chicken programme then press OK. When the light turns blue the beeps indicate it is ready to cook.
Place the chicken strips on the OptiGrill and close the lid
The indicator light will go through a series of colour changes to show the different degrees of cooking. When the indicator turns red and beeps the chicken is ready.
Remove the chicken from the Tefal OptiGrill using tongs.
To assemble the Syn Free Shawarma, arrange a handful of iceberg lettuce on each wrap and divide the pickled cabbage between the two. Place the chicken on the pickled cabbage, then top with chopped tomatoes and onions
Drizzle some of the yogurt dressing, roll up the wraps, cut each one in half and serve.
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.
