Lemon Chilli Chicken Recipe – Syn Free

slimming world lemon chilli chickenWow what a dish ! This is absolutely gorgeous BUT very spicy though and I would recommend using maybe half a chilli if you do not like really spicy food.

I would highly recommend this meal and if you like chilli chicken you are going to love this version.

I find when I make this dish with lots of spices it really makes me cough :-) so I am afraid this is the one the other half with have to cook again :-)

The recipe is totally free on both extra easy and original and goes superbly with some syn free slimming world chips which are easy to make.

To increase your super free element add a large portion on salad on the side.
