What do I need to make this Syn Free Nando’s Peri Peri Chicken ?

Next, if you want to keep this Syn free, you need something called Xanthan Gum. Xanthan Gum is a syn free thickener and works a bit like cornflour. You add it to a liquid, and it thickens but you only need to add a little! Just 1/4 or a teaspoon works the same as 1 tbsp cornflour!
We use Xanthan Gum quite a lot! Why not use it in this Syn Free Fish Pie?
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 Sunflower one for this Syn Free Nando’s Peri Peri Chicken recipe, and it was fab!

How do I make this Syn Free Nando’s Peri Peri Chicken ?
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Remove any fat or skin from the chicken and place in a baking dish.
Chop the onions and peppers into large chunks and place in the baking dish. Spray with Frylight.
Sprinkle over all the spices, Xanthan Gum and tomato puree all over the chicken and vegetables, and add the juice of the lemon. Mix to combine fully.
Place in the oven and cook for 40 minutes until the chicken is browned and cooked through.
You may need to add a couple of tablespoons of water to the dish to make some extra sauce – it really depends on how much liquid comes out of the vegetables and chicken during the cooking process.
Serve with rice and a wedge of lemon!
