Syn Free Chicken Tikka Fakeaway | Slimming World Recipe

I tried the Chicken Tikka recipe on the Slimming world website and honestly it just tasted like a mouthful of grit.. It just didn’t have enough liquid in it. Finally Mr Fatgirlskinny and I have perfected our delicious syn free chicken tikka.. hopefully you will enjoy too.

I haven’t made this for a very long time… I really need to get this back into our weekly menu!



300g skinless chicken (diced with any fat removed)
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 onion finely chopped
10 TBSP Fat free natural yoghurt
3 and 1/2 TBSP of Tikka curry powder
1 Tsp Ginger
1 Tsp Paprika
1/2 Tsp Basil
1 Tsp Cumin
2 Cloves of garlic or 1 tsp of garlic powder
Salt and pepper

White or Brown rice to serve…


I always use a NUTRIBULLET to mix my curry paste but you could mix this together in a bowl.. I always prepare my paste to marinate the chicken at least 2 hours before but it is much better if you can leave overnight.

  • Add 6 TBSP of natural fat free yoghurt, tikka spice, ginger, paprika, cumin, basil, garlic, salt and pepper into a bowl or blender, Mix until a paste is formed.
  • Add uncooked chicken and allow to marinate for as least 2 hours.Heat pan and coat well with frylight as the yogurt can cause it to stick.
  • Heat the chicken until cooked through and add onion.
  • Add the tin of chopped tomatoes and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
  • This is where you need to decide if the curry needs extra creaminess or liquid.. if so add the remaining yogurt to taste.. this is entirely up to you
  • Allow to simmer for a further 5 minutes and then serve with rice or syn free chips..

I have heard a few people mention that they find it hard to buy tikka spice from the supermarket.. we get ours from Tesco no problems here

I really hope you enjoy as much as we do.. Any comments welcomed.
