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 Lo-Low Cheese. We’ve counted this as 1/4 of your HEA.

If you don’t wish to use it as your Healthy Extra A choice 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 HEA 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 your HEA,  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.

    1. Hi Catherine,
      You could try using fat free fromage frais, or any other soft cheese (Philadelphia Light, Ricotta, Mascarpone etc) but you would have to syn it accordingly (or use as part of your HEA in applicable)

    1. Hi Joy
      Yes it should be ok to freeze, but it may be worth adding a little extra stock and quark just so it’s a bit wetter when it’s frozen as it may dry out a little when reheated

    1. Hi Alison
      It’s become one of our favourites too……if you like fish give it a go with some salmon instead of the chicken!

    1. Hi Radka
      Yes you could, but the quark does tend to give it a texture that is more like a cream cheese than yogurt would

    1. Hi Katie
      Quark shouldn’t split if you heat it very gently, or better still remove from the heat and stir it in. Also, it may help if you take the quark out of the fridge for a bit before you use it
