Crispy Coated Chicken Strips | Slimming World Recipe

Delicious potato chip crisps create the perfect crunchy salty low syn coating for chicken strips. Loved by all the family and really easy to create.

I am constantly on the look out for new ways to coat my chicken without breaking the Syn allowance. I saw a similar recipe to this on a cooking programme last week so I thought I would try to create something Slimming World friendly and I think I have come up with the perfect recipe with a bit of crunch. 

The best thing about this recipe is that the chicken stays nice and juicy inside whilst the crisps create a delicious salty crispy coating. We used just 1 bag of Walkers baked crisps which are 5.5 Syns making this recipe officially 2.75 Syns per serving but lets call it 2.5!!

I have used chicken breast for this recipe but it would also work with chicken thighs. You may just need to adjust the cooking time by a few minutes less. Also I have used the Ready salted Walkers crisps but fill ya boots and change it up.. I think this would be very interesting with Salt and Vinegar too πŸ™‚

If this doesn’t sound like your kind of thing, try one of our other coated chicken recipes.

  1. Thank you for this. Another variation to this is using Dorito crisps. Which work out approx 3-3.5s per portion. It’s delish πŸ‘πŸ»

    1. There are plenty of bread crumb recipes out there but this is an epic recipe using crisps πŸ™‚ at only 2.5 syns per serving i don’t think it’s going to ruin your diet lol xx

  2. This is a great recipe I can use because my husband has to have gluten free products. I guess it could be used on fish too.

  3. I found that 25g of crisps only covered half the strips. I am supposed to fully coat the chicken strips, not just one side?

    1. All of the chicken needs a thin coating of crisps, it should cover just fine. Maybe you are using too much chicken? Are they small breasts?
