How is this Slimming World Syn Free Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta Syn Free?
The only ingredient that carries a Syn value is the 60g of Kerry Go Go’s Cheese. We’ve counted this as 1/4 of one of your HEAs.
If you don’t wish to use it as part of your Healthy Extra A choices then Syn it.
If you’d like a little bit of naughtiness, why not serve it with a sprinkling of cheese on top?
But, don’t forget to syn it or count it as part of your HEAs depending on the type of cheese that you choose.
Personally, we like to use Pecorino cheese to sprinkle on the top of this Slimming World Syn Free Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta. It’s a little like Parmesan, but it’s so much nicer! You’re allowed 30g as one of your HEAs, but 10g is sufficient.
Especially if you use a Deiss cheese grater.
What do you need to make this Syn Free Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta?
You only need a few things to make this Slimming World Syn Free Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta into such a nice dish that you’ll want it over and over again!
The key ingredients are;
- Tesco Cajun Seasoning – Syn free
- Protein Shop Chicken Breats
- A Deiss grater – simply the best grater we’ve EVER used!
Tesco Cajun Seasoning
The Tesco Cajun seasoning is available from, you guessed it – Tesco. It’s really cheap (90p), and one of the few premade Cajun seasoning that is Syn free!
It’s also not too spicy like some Cajun seasonings are. We like to put it on our Syn Free Slimming World Potato Wedges, just sooo nice.
Quality Chicken Breast
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 also don’t have that horrid vac-pack smell when you open them up, unlike other online butchers!
The Deiss Grater
The Deiss grater is just amazing as it grates cheese much finer than a typical grater would grate. Thus it gives you the illusion that you’ve got so much more cheese, but you haven’t!
It’s the perfect Slimming World essential, a secret weapon that tricks your brain!
Just take a look at this picture – this is 30g of Cheddar grated with a regular box grater. See how much you get?
Now here is the same amount of cheese, but grated with a Deiss grater. Look how much more it looks like you get!!
This makes it just perfect to top your Slimming World Syn Free Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta!
It’s just crazy, isn’t it? You can also use them to grate ginger, garlic, chocolate, vegetables and zests of citrus fruits.
Ok so we’ve heard what you need to make this Syn Free Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta, but how do you make this Syn Free Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta?
How to make Slimming World Syn Free Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta
Pop the pasta on, and cook according to the instructions on the pack. Cook the chicken and onions in a few sprays of Frylight cooking spray over a medium heat until the chicken starts to brown and the onions start to soften.
Mix the Cajun seasoning, Paprika and Season All together, then add half of it to the pan. Stir and cook for a minute or so.
Add the mushrooms, peppers and carrot. Cook for another minute.
Add the cherry tomatoes and the chicken stock. Then add the remaining seasoning. Stir well. Then add the rest of the speedy veg.
In a separate bowl mix the quark, eggs and Go Go’s Cheese together until it is smooth, then add the chicken and veg mix. Stir well.
Add the cooked pasta, then serve with some freshly ground black pepper and some grated cheese, but don’t forget to syn it!
