Sometimes on the weekend, we’d occasionally have a Chicken Kebab, but not anymore. This Syn Free Chicken Souvlaki and Tzatziki is a million times nicer and is Syn free. It’s perfect when following the Slimming World Extra Easy plan.
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 👍
We don’t tend to have a “treat night” anymore, and instead, cook something interesting that feels like a “treat”. Hence our obsession with recreating take away recipes and turning them into Slimming World “fake aways”.
Making things like this Syn Free Chicken Souvlaki and Tzatziki instead of having a take away dramatically increases our weekly losses. Instead of losing 2lb, we’ll loose 4lb etc. Really is worth that extra bit of willpower.

What do I need to cook this Syn Free Chicken Souvlaki and Tzatziki?
There are a few things you need to make this Syn Free Chicken Souvlaki and Tzatziki. Some are necessary and some are ideal – they’ll make your life easier for sure!
- Good quality chicken breasts
- A jar with a tight lid
- Bamboo skewers
- A cast iron griddle pan
For the chicken breasts, I urge you to check out our Protein Food Shop hampers. Packed full of the BEST quality meat we’ve ever come across (which is saying something!!). They’re also incredible value for money, working out FAR cheaper than the supermarket.
They’re also British (not from the EU, unlike some online “butchers”!) and don’t have that horrid vac-pack smell when you open them up.
As for the jar with the light lid – it’s needed to store the rest of the Souvlaki Seasoning Mix in. I use these Kilner herb jars from Amazon, they’re the best you can get!
The bamboo skewers you can probably pick up from any supermarket, they’ll be on offer soon as BBQ season starts!
Lastly the cast iron griddle pan, this has to be the most used pan in our kitchen. It’s the best pan to cook meat in, and it holds the heat SO well. You also get those fantastic griddle marks which make your food taste amazing.
You can get this Kitchen Craft 24 cm Cast Iron Round Ribbed Grill Pan super cheap over on Amazon. It’s the one we have, and does the job very well!
How do I make and cook this Syn Free Chicken Souvlaki and Tzatziki?
This is one of our easier recipes! Literally all you do is cut the chicken up, marinade and cook!
Make the Souvlaki Seasoning Mix by mixing together all of the ingredients in the recipe below. Store them in a jar with a tight lid as you won’t use all of it, so best to keep some for later.
Chop the chicken into chicken nugget sized pieces, and pop in a bowl along with the lemon juice. Add 2 tbsp of the Souvlaki Seasoning Mix (in the recipe below) and mix well! You want to make sure all of the chicken pieces are coated.
Cover the bowl with clingfilm, then leave the chicken to marinade in the fridge for at least an hour.
Thread the chicken onto the skewers and heat your griddle pan. You’ll also want to preheat your oven to 200°C so we can put them in there to cook through.
Whilst the Syn Free Chicken Souvlaki is cooking, you want to prepare some salad and your Syn free Tzatziki. All you do is combine the ingredients indicated in the recipe below.
The Tzatziki will top your chicken like so! Nom, nom, nom.
That’s how you make our Syn Free Chicken Souvlaki and Tzatziki! Pretty simple, right? Just plate it up, and you have a meal fit for any king or queen.
