The Syns Breakdown

Before diving into the kitchen, it’s important to consider the Slimming World Syns in this recipe. While we estimate it to be around 4 Syns per portion based on the ingredients used, keep in mind that Syns can vary between brands. To ensure accurate tracking, take a moment to double-check the Syn values of the specific ingredients you choose.

The Syns primarily come from the honey and chilli dipping sauce, integral for flavor and that desirable sticky texture. Additionally, a touch of flour adds a crispy element to the chicken, and cornflour serves to thicken up the sauce. These components work together harmoniously, creating a mouthwatering dish that doesn’t compromise on taste.
