Syn Free Creamy Chicken Curry | Slimming World

We’ve had quite a few people asking if we know of a nice, creamy Slimming World friendly curry recipe. So we thought we’d share this Syn Free Creamy Chicken Curry one with you.

Syn Free Creamy Chicken Curry

Although it’s not quite as creamy as a korma (and let’s face it we’re never going to be able to replicate that exactly without spending a fair few syns) this Syn Free Creamy Chicken Curry is perfect for those, like me, that like a creamier consistency.

We use chicken in this recipe, but you can use what ever meat you want. Why not try beef, lamb, turkey or even prawns.

As you know we all need to eat as much speed food as we can, so we like to add a load into this curry just before the end of the cooking time, but this isn’t an essential part of this Syn Free Creamy Chicken Curry recipe, just an added bonus to help you along with your weight loss. Or you could just serve it with some extra veg if you prefer, or how about some cauliflower or broccoli rice?

When ever 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 Creamy Chicken Curry recipe. Or why not try the Coconut one!

  1. This looks great! I’m sick of wasting syns on jars of sauce and curry paste. This will be dinner tomorrow. Thanks so much! 🙂

    1. Hi Estelle, We’re exactly the same, we hate wasting syns unnecessarily. It wouldn’t be so bad if the jars of sauce were only 1 or 2 syns but they are soooo high! we were shocked to find out the syn value of some pre made sauces!

    1. A little ramekin or small bowl, pack the rice in, turn upside down on plate and tap the base of the ramekin and it ~should~ look like in the pic.

  2. I’ve made this twice now and each time it’s made, the sauce seems to split and look curdl. What am I doing wrong?

  3. Just wondering. Last time I’ve cooked curry with yoghurt in, the yoghurt always curdled. Does the yoghurt curdle or is it alright or any ideas why it’s curdled for me in the past.

    Thanks PON

    1. Hi Rachel,
      The trick with yogurt (especially the fat free ones) is to heat it up very gently and try not to let it come to the boil. Also try taking the yogurt out of the fridge for a bit before you use it. That way it won’t be quite so cold when it hits the pan
