What do I need to make this Syn Free Garlic, Lemon and Parsley Chicken Goujons?

Making breadcrumbs is so easy with one of these Mini Electric Choppers which you can get on Amazon.

They’re a really useful gadget for whizzing up herbs and spices, as well as making breadcrumbs. You can even use it to make hummus!

This Mini Electric Chopper is a real space saver when compared to a full size food processor, so it’s great if you’re pushed for space…or have a cupboard full of gadgets (totally guilty of that one!)

 

Whenever 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! We used the Olive Oil one for this Syn Free Garlic, Lemon and Parsley Chicken Goujons recipe, and it was fab!

    1. Hi Donna
      Glad you (and the kids) like it! It’s always great when you find a Slimming World friendly recipe that the kids like too!

    1. Hi Debbie
      You could, but SW class it as a tweak. If you choose to Syn tweaks, they should be Synned at the same Syn value as whatever it is replacing, so in this case you would Syn the cous cous as breadcrumbs. Some people do Syn tweaks and some don’t so it would be up to the individual

    1. Hi Claire
      We don’t recommend freezing these. One you’ve prepped the raw chicken into goujons, they should be cooked straight away. Hope this helps.

  1. I made these with gluten free breadcrumbs and they were gorgeous! the whole family enjoyed them, thank you x

  2. It looks delicious!! I want to make it today. Can you tell me if you toasted the bread? Sorry for my ignorance. Thanks for the recipe and inspiration!!

    1. Hi Lia
      No, you do not need to toast the bread. One tip for breadcrumbs is to use slightly older slices of bread as they tend to crumb a bit more more easily

  3. Have just made these for dinner in a bit and they look and smell delicious so really hoping they are even more so when they are cooked! Thank you so much for all your hard work and wonderful recipes that we all use everyday….. you’re SUPERSTARS x

  4. These were a huge hit tonight and will be making again soon.

    Big thank you for your website. I have never been able to stick to Slimming World before as I haven’t liked any of the recipes until I stumbled across PON. My fussy 3 year old has eaten every meal and even licked the plate when I made the korma and pakoras! My husband likes to think of himself as a bit of a food critic and has given every meal at least a 9/10 too.

  5. Hi

    Really like the look of this recipe but I’m on weight watchers would I use weight watchers bread for my crumbs and use my points to balance this??
    Many thanks

    1. Hi Carly,
      If you look at the recipe card, we include WW points too. This recipe works out at 2 smart points (Flex/Freestyle) per portion. Hope that helps! 🙂

  6. Making these for dinner tonight. I go to W.W but need inspiration with other recipes. Will post what the family thought about them. By the way I’ve joined this group as most of the recipes I would cook as I always cook from scratch.

    1. Hi Susan
      As you’ll see on the recipe cards, we add WW points information to each recipe too! Hope that helps! 🙂

    1. Hi Tina
      The recipe uses 4 chicken breasts, cut into strips, for 4 portions. You should get at least 3 or 4 strips per chicken breast, maybe more! Hope that helps!

  7. Can I replace the lemon with chilli to make garlic and chilli Goujons or would that make the mix too dry?? Also do you freeze once cooked or raw after coating. Thinking of making for a get together with friends so would be good to pre make and put in the oven later to eat hot
