CRISPY COATED CHICKEN STRIPS | HEALTHY SLIMMING RECIPE
Delicious potato chip crisps create the perfect crunchy salty coating for chicken strips. Loved by all the family and really easy to create. This unofficial recipe is perfect for any one following Slimming World, Weight Watchers or a calorie controlled diet.
I am constantly on the look out for new ways to coat my chicken without breaking the calorie barrier. I saw a similar recipe to this on a cooking programme last week so I thought I would try to create something Unofficially 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 🙂

IS THIS RECIPE SUITABLE FOR FREEZING?
