If you’re seeking culinary inspiration, join me on a flavorful journey tonight with a unique creation – the Syn-Free Chicken Fajita Pasta. This inventive dish takes everything you adore about fajitas, discards the traditional tortilla wraps, and substitutes them with delectable pasta, all while preserving that authentic Mexican taste. Tailored for those following Slimming World, Weight Watchers, or a calorie-controlled diet, this unofficial recipe is a game-changer.

What makes this Chicken Fajita Pasta a standout?




Quick and easy


Perfect for batch cooking


Batch Cooking Bliss

Yes, this dish is a batch cooking marvel, maintaining its allure in the fridge for 2-3 days and in the freezer for a month. A quick microwave reheating ensures a satisfying meal, just guarantee the chicken is thoroughly cooked.

Ditch the Kits and Dive into Flavor

Commercial fajita kits can cost you up to 10 Syns per fajita on Slimming World. But fear not! I’ve concocted an alternative that not only aligns with your dietary goals but tantalizes your taste buds. This Syn-Free Chicken Fajita Pasta boasts a mere 471 calories per portion and seamlessly fits into my midweek meal plans. Trust me; you’ll savor every bite.

The Quest for Creaminess

Perfecting this recipe took a few trials, but the winning combination involves the right mix of spices, vegetables, and pasta. Creaminess is non-negotiable, and in the spirit of staying waistline-friendly, a compromise or two is necessary. While double cream would be divine, quark plays its part and keeps you on track.

Give Quark a Chance

Lime wedges, guacamole, and a dollop of quark (replacing sour cream) elevate this dish. If you customize with extras, ensure you factor in the Syns or calories according to your diet plan.

Serving Up Mexican Magic

With pasta, chicken, and veggies in the mix, this dish is a complete meal. Amp up the Speed Foods with a generous side of leafy green salad.
