Slimming world sweet and sour chicken

Hello Dear Reader,

This isn’t from the Slimming World website but it follows their healthy eating plan. We’re both following this as our clothes are tight and we need to stick to a lighter plateful. 

Here’s my sweet and sour.

I used a kilo bag of stir fry veggies from Farm Foods. 2 defrosted chicken breasts, also from Farmfoods and stir fried them with minced garlic, chili and ginger and I use the lazy in a jar as there’s no waste and I’ve always got them in the cupboard.

I cooked some brown rice and made my sweet and sour sauce

20g of corn flour, 3 heaped tbsp of tomato purée, tbsp wine vinegar, 3 tbsp of powdered sweetener, 80ml of water, 1 tbsp of soy sauce (gf in my case) blend in a mug or jug.

When the chicken and vegetables are cooked, add the garlic, chili and ginger and cook for one minute.

Add the sweet and sour sauce, whilst it’s cooking taste and add a splash more vinegar, or sweetener or soy sauce to your taste. If the sauce is thicker than you like, a a dash more water. 

Serve with rice. Cheap, cheerful and sugar free. Does anyone else have a slimming world recipe you’ve adapted on the cheap,

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs x

  1. S/World falafels are good. A chopped onion, a grated carrot, 2 x 400g chickpeas, a bit of root ginger & whatever chopped fresh herbs & spices you like (or you could use their recipe if unsure). Whoosh it up in the food processor for a fairly chunky mix, then add a lightly whisked egg to bind. Shape into ping pong sized balls & let them chill in the fridge for several hours. Then spray a baking tray with Frylight, pop ’em in the oven for about 15 to 20 mins at 180 degrees fan. You can serve with a hummus or yoghurt dip, and eat them hot or cold.
    With a tin of chickpeas about 50p, that’s not an expensive recipe, and baking not frying means lower calories. I’m sure a substitute for that egg could be found to make the recipe Vegan if needed.
    Best wishes Valerie


  2. Have you ever made the sweet and sour sauce without the soy sauce? We have a food allergy in the family to soy. Is there a substitute, that, of course, does not contain soy in any of its forms?
