Our recipe for Chicken Tartiflette is inspired by the French dish served to skiers after a long day on the slopes.

Traditionally a mix of baked cheese, potatoes, onion and bacon this apres-ski dish is usually high in fat and calories.  But don’t worry,  we have come up with a version that really hits the spot without all the added Points and calories!

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 👍

We find this recipe is perfect for the colder evenings, and it tastes so good you won’t believe it’s slimming friendly! We have taken all the delicious flavours of Tartiflette and created a rounded meal which still tastes incredibly naughty. It’s like a big cheesy hug on a plate!

To make a full meal of it we have added chicken, mushrooms and spinach to the traditional ingredients. We have also used leek as the supermarkets are full of them at the moment, but it works perfectly with onion too!

We have also used gammon steak instead of bacon, but you can use either, just make sure it’s smoked as it is really important to the flavour of the dish.

Chicken Tartiflette | Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly

  • Preheat the oven to 220°C. Cut the potatoes into small cubes and put into a pan of water to boil on the hob. The potatoes will need to cook through but be careful not to over cook them, they still need to hold their shape well.

  • Wash the leek and thinly slice. Include the whole leek, green and white parts. Slice the mushrooms.
  • Trim any visible fat from the gammon or bacon and cut into pieces.  Cut the chicken into small chunks.
  • Add the gammon, chicken, water, stock cube and mustard powder to the frying pan and spray with low calorie cooking spray. Also add 1 tsp of the garlic granules. Gently sauté the meat until it has coloured and then add the leek and mushrooms.

  • Once the leeks and mushrooms have softened add the spinach and stir until it is lightly wilted. Then take the pan off the heat and gently stir in the light mature cheese spread to create the cheese sauce.
  • Make a well in the centre of the mixture and add the Quark. Very gently stir working from the centre out until fully combined. It may sound odd, but this will prevent the Quark from splitting! Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  1. Hi – love your recipes they are so tasty. I can never get quark to work for me it always splits no matter what I do. Do you think fromage frais or something else would work for this dish? Thanks!

  2. Hi, is the spreadable cheese a cream cheese like Philadephia light? The recipe says stir in the mature cheese spread so wondering what they this is.

    1. Yes you can! If you scroll to the recipe card where it shows the servings, you can change the number from 4 to 2 and it will recalculate all the quantities for you. 🙂

  3. Glad you enjoyed it! The water content of the chicken and vegetables will vary, so adjust to what works best for you 🙂

  4. Do you have any ideas on what I could substitute bacon/gammon with, my husband doesn’t eat pork 🤔

    Thank you, I’m gonna attempt it, would love another take

    Awesome as always 💕

    1. Hi Emma,

      You can just leave it out if it’s not to your taste – you might need a little extra seasoning and could replace with some extra chicken 😊
