This was one of our favourite meals from the Chinese Takeaway. Crispy chicken (usually wings) seasoned with a spicy coating. Now, since starting on Slimming World Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings are off the menu, so we needed an alternative.
We decided to use chicken thighs, but you could use drumsticks if you want.
You’ll notice that the spice mix for this Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chicken recipe uses a tablespoon of sweetener.
As you will probably know Slimming World have brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. Slimming World have confirmed what this change means.
Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend members count 0.5 Syn per tbsp. If using smaller amounts, like a pinch or teaspoon, there’s no need to worry about Syns at all.
As the recipe for the spice mix makes quite a lot you’ll be using a lot less than 1 tablespoon of sweetener per portion, so there’s no need to add any extra syns on for the sweetener itself.
The quantities for the spice mix will make more than enough for the Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chicken recipe, so you can just keep any extra spice mix in an airtight container or sealed food bag until you’re ready to use it again. We always have a bag in our cupboard! Or you could even try our Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chips or our Syn Free Salt and Pepper Pork recipe with what you have left over.

You’ll notice that the Salt and Pepper Spice Mix recipe calls for MSG or Monosodium glutamate.
Monosodium Glutamate or MSG is a flavour enhancer commonly added to most Chinese food from the takeaway. There have been many debates about the use of MSG, so if you prefer not use it you can just leave it out. However, if you do want to use it you can buy it here on Amazon.
We use Frylight whenever we need to replace oil to sauté things. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Sunflower or the Olive Oil Flavour are perfect for Syn Free Salt and Pepper Chicken.
