Syn Free Chicken Fried Rice Fakeaway | Slimming World Recipe




I love putting together a Fakeaway meal because not only does it save money over a usual takeaway but it massively cuts calories.. it’s also delicious. Before Slimming World we would probably have a Chinese takeaway each week. No wonder I was so overweight.

I love this chicken fried rice recipe and it’s totally Syn free.. enjoy.

Ingredients:

(This makes 4 portions and its perfect for freezing and reheating)

110g White rice (uncooked weight)
2 Small chicken breasts finely sliced (you could also use beef, pork or just leave it plain)
1 Onion finely chopped (or frozen onion)
1 Clove garlic (or garlic granules)
4 Mushrooms finely chopped (or frozen mushroom)
50g Frozen peas (or tinned)
50g Frozen Sweetcorn (or tinned)
1 Red pepper finely chopped
1 Yellow pepper finely chopped
3 Tbsp Dark soy sauce (or light would do the job)
1 Tbsp Oyster sauce
2 Eggs beaten
Salt and pepper.
Frylight

Method:

  • Boil water in a pan and add your rice. Half way through cooking.. remove from heat and drain through a colander. Wash the rice again with hot water. Place back into a pan of boiling water and continue cooking. Repeat this process when it is fully cooked. This prevents the rice from sticking together.
  • Allow the rice to cool completely.
  • Add Frylight to a frying pan and cook the onions, peppers, peas and sweetcorn until softened.
  • Add chicken and mushrooms. Cook on a low heat until chicken is cooked through.
  • Add your beaten eggs and scrambled this in the mixture. Keep it moving to stop from sticking.
  • Stir in soy sauce, oyster sauce and garlic.
  • Reduce the heat and add your rice. Stir continuously and add some extra soy sauce if needed. Season with salt and pepper.

Don’t forget your chopsticks!

If you are anything like me.. you will LOVE Chinese food 😀 I certainly do. We tried this amazing recipe tonight and it was fantastic. A new favorite in our house that is for sure.

Portions: 2
Syns: 0.5 per serving.
Warmth: Spicy (reduce chillis for less heat)

Ingredients:

For the marinade

Sauce:

– Add the boiling water and a stock cube into a jug to dissolve.

– Add the rest of the sauce ingredients and mix. Set this to one side until later.

The rest:

– Spray your pan with fry light and brown your beef.

– Once browned remove from pan and put to one side

– Chop your spring onion, onion, chillis and pepper and add to the pan with ginger and garlic.

– Fry until softened.
