Welcome to my Slimming World cheesy chicken dippers recipe. Just three simple ingredients and incredibly low Syn it makes a great alternative to the processed freezer alternative that we all grew up with. Serve it with homemade chips for the perfect chicken and chips Slimming World moment.
I am a huge fan of chicken dippers and it was the very first thing I ever cooked in my Philips Airfryer. Though it wasn’t exactly healthy and involved a frozen bag of chicken dippers and they were thrown in frozen and then came out like crispy strips of chicken heaven.
But we loved them and we had a few rounds of them.
And another thing those packs of chicken dippers can be rather pricy, especially if you are serving 4 of you.
Oh and the Syns, it is seriously not good if you are on Slimming World!
But what if you could make your own?
And what if they could be just 3 ingredients?
You could then eat them for dinner, do a round of my Slimming World Chips to go with them and then hey presto you have a great dinner. Plus your kids will think that you are amazing for introducing them to the Slimming World Diet Plan.
The 3 ingredients in this recipe are really simple ones. We have chicken breast, a packet of quavers and some egg to bind it altogether with. That is it. And thanks to the crispy crisps and the strong cheese flavour they give you a delicious crust. And once you have these once….you will want them over and over again.
Even better it doesn’t require a full packet of Quavers crisps so you can eat the rest of the packet while your chicken is cooking!
Just 3 Ingredients:
How Many Syns In Quavers?
There are 5.5 Syns in a packet of Quavers. This is probably why I always had quavers when I was on Slimming World because they were so low Syn. I remember in my teens on Slimming World that I would have a wholemeal tuna sandwich along with a packet of quavers for lunch.
Now those were the days!
But in this Slimming World Recipe because you only need ½ a packet it means that it works out at just 2.25 Syns for everyone! So have the best ever crunchy chicken breast in the Airfryer for just over 1 Syn per person.
Talk about a low Syn treat.
So if you are looking for a worthwhile way to have your Slimming World Quavers then try this out!

- Chop the chicken into strips.
- In a small bowl beat your egg.
- In a third bowl add ½ the packet of quavers and crunch them up with your hands.
- Roll the chicken in the egg and then in the crushed quavers.
- Place the baking mat in the bottom of the Airfryer and place the chicken on top.
- Cook for 15 minutes at 180c. Turn with a pair of tongs and then cook for a further 5 minutes on the other side.
You could change this for a whole range of favourite crisps. I have gone cheesy with quavers. But you could do it with doritos for a spicy flavour instead.
For a dipping sauce, I recommend that you mix a teaspoon of mustard power with a tablespoon of natural yoghurt. It gives a delicious flavour and is perfect for a Syn free alternative to mayonnaise.
My chicken strips were not very fat, if your chicken pieces are thicker you might need to cook them for longer and check to see if your chicken is cooked in the middle before serving.
For Slimming World this recipe comes in at 2.75 Syns. This is because it uses ½ a packet of crips.
