Slimming World-friendly Chicken Katsu Curry

Slimming World-friendly Chicken Katsu Curry – this recipe is an absolute game changer! So tasty and syn-free if you use the breadcrumbs as your healthy extra B 🙂

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic crushed
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp of curry powder
  • 2 tsp of cumin
  • 2 tsp of chilli powder
  • 1 small courgette, chopped
  • 2 small carrots, chopped
  • 2 small potatoes, skin on, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 1 litre of chicken stock
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 wholemeal rolls
  • Basmati rice
  • Low calorie cooking spray

Add low cal cooking spray to a large saucepan and add the onions and garlic. Once they are softened, add the spices to heat through and release the flavours.

Then add the courgette, carrot and potatoes, soy sauce and chicken stock. Let this cook on a medium/high heat for 40 minutes – we want to get all the flavour out but also let the water reduce.

In the meantime, preheat the oven to 180c. Blitz the wholemeal rolls in a food processor to make breadcrumbs. Then take the chicken breast, flatten it out as much as you can (to get the largest surface area you can), dip it in beaten egg then into the breadcrumbs. Lay out on an oven tray lined with tin foil and a liberal spray of cooking spray and cook for 30 minutes.

Put the rice on to boil and turn your attention back to the sauce. Make sure the water has reduced, then blitz the sauce with a hand blender to create a thick katsu sauce.

Serve the boiled rice with the thinly sliced breaded chicken breast, topped with a liberal helping of syn-free katsu sauce! YUM!

Slimming World Mint Yogurt

No Bhajis or kebab would be complete without mint yogurt – I love the stuff! However it can hide tonnes of syns in the innocent looking accompaniment so here’s a tasty syn-free version 👍

Ingredients:

5 tablespoons of fat-free plain yogurt

4 teaspoons of sugar-free mint sauce (Colman’s one I know is free)

Pinch of sweetener

Pinch of salt

Dash of cayenne pepper (controversial but tasty)

Method:

Mix all ingredients together

Thank me later

My tasty – but not photogenic – Slimming World syn free Onion Bhajis

Slimming World syn free Onion Bhajis?

I was dubious about Slimming World syn free Onion Bhajis. How can such a beautiful thing be replicated on Slimming World and still taste good?

Well trust me! They’re gorgeous. I first tried them at a taster session and was so impressed I made them at home and then rustled up a syn-free mint yogurt to go with it.

As well as being awesome, they are made up of speedy onion so it really does help with your weight loss…now to resist moving on to a cheeky takeaway curry after the bhajis – just make your own!

It takes about 10 minutes to prep all the bits and pieces and 20 minutes to cook them so all in all, not too much effort for something DEFINITELY worth it!

Ingredients:

  • Frylight
  • 1 large onion – finely sliced
  • 2 large eggs – beaten
  • 1 sweet potato – grated
  • 1 tablespoon of curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon of tumeric
  • 1 teaspoon of chilli flakes (or a bit more if you like a kick!

Method:

Piece of cake. NOT literally, especially if you’re on Slimming World!

Put all of the ingredients above (except the frylight) into a bowl and mix them together. Get greaseproof paper or tin foil on an oven tray and give it a liberal spray with frylight.

Mould the mixture into balls – I reckon you can get about 12 out of the mixture. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees until golden brown. Serve with a gorgeous syn-free mint sauce.

Winner winner, bhaji dinner x
