Slimming World Chicken Kebab. The ultimate guide to making your own Slimming World chicken kebabs at home in the air fryer. One of my favourite fakeaway recipes it is quick to prep and fast to cook.
Slimming World Chicken Kebab
Welcome to my Slimming World Chicken Kebab recipe. I originally published this delicious Slimming World kebab recipe back in the summer of 2017. Today I am back with an update.
I love the movie 28 Days. It sees Sandra Bullock going into rehab for her addictions. What I love is when they are sat in a circle and all commenting about what their addiction is.
Only about 30% of them have the same and it reminds me very much of what we have all gained weight from and what our food or drink addiction is.
My addiction would be the one that eats way too much chocolate and when living in England had way too many takeaways.
Dominic would be similar though his portion sizes have also been an issue. Ask my mum and she would be part of the bread and cheese with everything club that is washed down with plenty of white wine.
But who wants to give up all these favourite foods just because we need to shed a few pounds?
Back in 2011 and in the Slimming World Magazine I saw an advert for a Philips Air Fryer.
It was the new kitchen gadget that I was curious as to how delicious it would make my food. Since then I have made more than 400 different air fryer recipes and the list just keeps growing.
But what I love most is the ability to make fakeaway recipes using the air fryer. Its like the fairy godmother for people on a diet and OMG the food you can create at home is so much better than the takeaway.
There is just so much choice. Even though I am sharing with you today how to make a Slimming World Chicken Kebab, the choice does not end there.
Slimming World Kebab
The idea behind a Slimming World Kebab is having complete control over what ingredients are added and keeping the syns as low as possible.
Yet NOT compromising on the taste and flavour of your kebab. By using the air fryer, you can reduce the Syns right down to a small amount of extra virgin olive oil that is used on the chicken as it cooks.
How Many Syns Is A Chicken Kebab On Slimming World?
Compared to a chip shop chicken kebab recipe, there are hardly any syns at all in these homemade air fryer chicken kebabs.
You have 2tsp of extra virgin olive oil which works out at 4 syns. But add to this that this recipe is enough for four people and you are talking 1 Syn.
But if you add in wholemeal pitta breads as a healthy extra, you can say that you are eating a delicious Slimming World chicken kebab that is JUST one syn.
Or if you would like to make a syn free chicken kebab then swap your olive oil for some fat free Greek yoghurt. It will make it more like a tandoori kebab but it will save you on your syns.
