There’s a clue in the name, it’s sweet, sour and delicious. Packed full of speed food, this Syn Free Sweet & Sour is a Slimming World dish that’s easy and quick to prepare.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
I’ve made this one with Quorn chicken pieces, but it could easily be made with proper, honest, clucking good chicken.
You’ll notice this recipe contains pineapple, and as we know when cooked this should be synned. You have a few options here.
Either add it during cooking and syn it accordingly at 2 syns per 100g. Add it but choose not to syn it.
You could leave it out altogether, or our favourite option is to add it just before you serve. This way it will not be cooked and will not require synning.
However, the choice is yours, so do whichever is the best for you.
A great dish to serve alongside our Syn Free Sweet & Sour is our Syn Free Salt & Pepper Chips!
These really do taste as good as they look, and go really well with this and any of our Chinese fakeaway dishes!
How to make our Syn Free Sweet & Sour
Start by chopping the onions and peppers. Add to a frying pan laced with Frylight, along with the chicken (or whatever you’re using) and sweetcorn.
Fry until it looks…fried.
Meanwhile, prepare the stock by adding to it the pineapple (optional – syn it if using!), vinegar, sauces, Sukrin and tinned tomatoes.
Mix it up good, and add to the frying pan.
Let the mixture boil down for a good 20 minutes or so, this will give it chance to thicken up a little and taste even better.
That’s about it! Best served with rice, or just as good on it’s own. Enjoy!
What is Sukrin?
Sukrin 1 doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this [xxx].
If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.
That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.
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 Coconut or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Sweet & Sour recipe.
