Regular visitors to the site you’ll know that before Slimming World we used to enjoy the odd takeaway. Well, I say ‘odd’ takeaway. Whether it was Italian, Indian, Pizza or Chinese we’d have it at least a couple of times a week.
Now, since joining Slimming World we’ve cut out the takeaways altogether, well we did have a Chinese a couple of months ago, but ended up with what I can only describe as a ‘food hangover’ the next day so we’ve not touched another since.
So, after the really disappointing incident with the Chinese (it really wasn’t worth the syns) we decided to bite the bullet and just make, or at least attempt to make what ever takeaway we fancied.
Some attempts haven’t been successful, and they haven’t yet made it to the site, but probably will with a bit more work. The ones that have worked have ended up on the site, and this is the latest – Syn Free Fakeaway Chicken in Black Pepper Sauce.
Now, this Syn Free Fakeaway Chicken in Black Pepper Sauce has a bit of a kick to it, so if you don’t want it too peppery just use 1/2 a teaspoon of ground black pepper rather than the full teaspoon. We love to serve ours on a bed of noodles.
One thing you will notice about all of our Fakeaway recipes is this…..we like to add as much speed to the dish as possible. Lets be honest, who wants to add a third of a plate of speed to a Chinese takeaway? So isn’t it better to throw a load in the dish itself than not bother with any?
For this Syn Free Fakeaway Chicken in Black Pepper Sauce, baby corn, courgette and sugar snap peas are ideal. Along with the spring onions, peppers and mushrooms give you a huge helping of speed. You can of course use what ever veg you want.
