KFC Slimming World Style 'Kentucky Fried Chicken'

One of the things I missed most when I first started Slimming World was my takeaways, Chinese was reasonably easy to adapt but McDonalds and KFC would something to be reserved for special occasions and 'off plan' days.   Eight years later though, and with a huge increase in information available online there are tons of 'fake away' recipes to choose from.

After the success of my 'Big Mac in a bowl' last year I decided to try the 'KFC style chicken' recipe I'd seen doing the rounds online.

It was a huge hit with the whole family, and although not exactly the same as the very moist and fatty pieces of chicken on the bone that you get in a Bargain bucket, it was very similar to the popcorn chicken and the fillets - certainly fills a 'KFC need'.

Slimming World Style kentucky fried chicken


4 small chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
3 tsp Chicken Bovril
2 eggs
2 slices wholemeal bread
1 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp mild chilli powder
1 tsp Paprika
2 tsp Mixed herbs
1 tsp Cajun spice
1 tsp Jamaican jerk seasoning

1) Preheat oven to 200 deg
2) Mix eggs with bovril and put chicken into the mix to marinate for 20 minutes
3) Make breadcrumbs from toasted bread
4) Add all the herbs to the breadcrumbs and mix well
5) Spray an oven tray with frylight
6) Remove chicken from the mix and roll in breadcrumbs
7) Place chicken on tray and spray with frylight
8) Cook for 20 minutes spraying chicken halfway through with frylight.

Only it's only 6 syns for the whole lot!

The recipe was given to me by a fellow SW member but when I came to make it I realised I didn't have most of the spices needed so I improvised, using BBQ seasoning rather than Jamaican Jerk (not sure if you can even get that here in Cyprus) and leaving out the Cajun spice altogether, it was still yummy though!

This has now made it onto the list of my favourite Slimming World meals!

Link up your recipe of the week


  1. I adore Slimming World chips! I was a target member 18 months ago and been very naughty ever since! Been really good since the 1st Jan and lost 7 lbs. I am a huge fan of the principles of Slimming World and you can definitely make the recipes almost as good as the real thing! I am missing an Indian though and the bottle of wine!!! xx #recipeoftheweek

  2. ooooh thats interesting as my OH loves KFC but as we all know it is very fattening! I bet it tasted better than the real thing too x

The one with the massive flashback

Facebook drives me mad a lot of the time, not mad enough to not live on it constantly of course (It's not that I *want* too, I HAVE to because of my work, well that and I'm far too nosy not to!)  It's full of rubbish a lot of the time, but also lots of little gems, funny things and random links that are a major time suck but so addictive. Every now and again though it throws up a gem, or in this case inspiration for a blog post... Recently I saw a link to an 80's nostalgia website and this particular post was all about the 'Come and Praise' hymn book that surely every 80s kid held in their grubby little hands once upon a time. (I couldn't find the original post, so I'm making my own!) We used this book every morning in assembly throughout my primary school years. They were kept in a box and handed out at the door as we left the classroom to go to the 'Big Hall' for assembly.  There were many very battered copies in the box and a few b

20 Questions - Interview with a 3 year old.

I came across a great idea on Pinterest a while ago where you ask your child a series of questions each year on their birthday staring at age 3 and then you can see how their answers change over the years.  I asked him the questions over a few days as and when he decided to cooperate and answer them - to most of them the answer was first 'I don't know' which is what he responds to everything at the moment even if he knows so I had to try a few times to get an answer out of him! Now he keeps asking me the questions too! 1. What is your favourite colour?   Light blue (this changes each time you ask him!)  2. What is your favourite toy?       Thomas   (the tank engine)  3. What is your favorite fruit?   Grapes 4. What is your favourite tv show?   Thomas  5. What is your favourite thing to eat for lunch?   Ham and salad cream ( sandwiches )  6. What is your favorite outfit?     Boys will be boys (t-shirt, doesn't care which shorts!)  7. Wha

My best Slimming World recipe EVER! - Cheesy Meatball Pasta Bake

Since going back to Slimming World at the start of January I've been making an effort to try some new recipes and keep varying my food every day. Although there is an endless choice when it comes to what you 'can' eat with Slimming World, like anything it's all too easy to fall into a habit of eating the same things day in and day out.  I have many SW cookbooks as well as a folder with lots of recipes that I've collected from the magazine over the years, I've actually made very few though! Last week I decided to try a new one out, and I wish I'd made it sooner! Cheesy Meatball Pasta Bake was a massive hit with the whole family and possibly one of the best main Slimming World meals I've ever made! You need... For the meatballs - 500g extra lean pork mince 6 finely chopped spring onions Dried herbs ( I used about a teaspoon each of basil and oregano) 1tbsp Worcestershire sauce 1 tbsp tomato puree For the sauce - 1 finely chop
