KFC Chicken

This is one of my favourite fakeaways! Now just to make you aware the smash is classed as a “Tweak”, a tweak is something that isn’t being used as its intended purpose. So for example, bananas are meant to be eaten and not mashed or puréed, so smash is designed to make mash not coat chicken. It can also take away its filling power and add unnecessary calories into your food. I’ve used this recipe over and over again in my weight loss journey and it has never effected my losses, however it is your decision whether you want to class it as a tweak or syn it appropriately, either way your saving yourself over 10 syns so you really cant complain.

Serves 2

Syn free if classing as a tweak or if not syn at 3 syns per serving.
