This is a great recipe that all the family will enjoy, the recipe comes from the new Slimming World Fakeaways Recipe Book 😀

  • Serves 4
  • 1.5 Syns On Extra Easy
  • 1.5 Syns On Original

You Will Need :

  • 150g Tomato Puree
  • 2 tsp Cayenne pepper

  • 1 tbsp Mixed Herbs
  • Freashly Ground Black pepper
  • 1 Egg White
  • 60g Wholemeal Roll
  • 12 Skinless & Boneless Chciken Thighs ( used Chicken Breast)
  • Low Calorie Cooking Spray

What To Do :

Preheat oven to 220c/Fan 200c/Gas 7 and line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.

Mix the tomato puree, cayenne pepper, garlic salt and mixed herbs in a large bowl and season with black pepper. Whisk the egg white in a clean bowl until it forms stiff peaks, then fold in the tomato puree mixture.

Whizz the roll into crumbs and then transfer onto a plate.

Dip the chicken in the egg mixture and then roll in the breadcrumbs, coating evenly. Place chicken onto the baking tray. Once all the chicken is coated spray with the low calorie cooking spray and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes.

I served mine with Slimming World wedges and salad.

Winning The Weekend

Well it’s Monday morning again !!! But I am pleased to say that I did really well over the weekend, yes I did have a few syns and even a couple of biscuits but I stayed focused and even tried some new recipes from the new Slimming World Fakeways Recipe Book and they went down really well with the whole family 😀

So it’s weigh in tomorrow night and if I was being honest I would love to lose 4.5lbs so that would mean that I would lose 1st in 2 weeks but I know that, that would be a big ask and almost to much to lose in just 2 weeks so I am aiming to lose 2lbs and I would be happy 😀

Meat Sauce

This is a really lovely meat sauce that is FREE on Slimming World, great for the whole family.

You Will Need

  • 500g Pack Extra Lean Mince Beef
  • 1 x Onion, Finely Chopped
  • 2 x Garlic Cloves, Crushed
  • 1 x Tin Chopped Tomatoes
  • 1 x Tin Of Baked Beans
  • Sprinkle Of Mixed Herbs
  • Vegatable Oxo Cube, Make Up To 1 Pint


  • Spray some Frylight into a pan and heat, add the onions & the garlic and fry for a minute or so.
  • Add the beef and stir, cook until all beef is brown
  • Add the tomatoes, baked beans and mixed herbs and stir.
  • Add the stock and then stir
  • Now leave to cook on a low heat until the sauce thickens, make sure that you stir regularly other wise it will burn at the bottom.

This meat sauce is great for all sorts of dishes and if you like it a bit spicy then just add some finely chopped chillies.

The sauce will keep in the fridge for a couple of days or it can be frozen.

(If you do not use the Extra Lean Mince Beef then it will not be free and you would need to work out the syn value)

You Learn Something Everyday :D

So as I was asked by some friends if they could see my food diary for my first week I added it to my blog last night, well it just goes to show you one of my lovely friends on Facebook (Claire) had a read and then pointed out to me that the Sugar Free Jellies are NOT syn FREE !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought they were and I don’t know why the only reason I can think of is that I did follow Weight Watchers for a while and they are 0 Pro Points but on Slimming World the sugar free jelly crystals are 1.5 syns per packet.

When I make the jelly up I do divide it in to 4 portions so this would be just under 1/2 a syn a portion but I think to be on the safe side I will in the future count it as the 1/2 syn 😀

So I have learnt that even the little things you need to check yes it may only be 1/2 a syn but if I had jelly everyday then that would be 3.5syns over the week…..

Weigh In…. :D

Well what can I say I had weigh in tonight after following my first week on Slimming World Extra Easy Plan and to be honest I am totally gobsmacked…

I lost 9.5lbs !!!!!! How bloody amazing is that !

The best thing was my daughter came to class with me and when the leader said how much I had lost she jumped up off the floor and just pounced on me giving me the biggest cuddle ever saying ” well done Mummy, well done” Now that’s got to be better than a sticker 😀

My First Award 😀 😀 😀



Here’s to another GREAT week 😀
