Spicy chicken thighs (slimming world friendly)

I found this recipe in Bill Grangers book and just adapted it slightly to make it slimming world friendly. I know it sounds odd using thai fish sauce on chicken but it gives it a savoury deep flavour  I have experimented and use less than the original recipe as it can make it quite salty.You can get thai fish sauce in most supermarkets usually found near the soy sauce.

I cooked these on the BBQ but you can easily pan fry them with some low calorie spray oil too. The amount of chili flakes I used make them slightly spicy but if you love your chili feel free to increase it. Its a really quick marinade just 30 minutes so makes a quick after work dinner too.



Spicy chicken thighs


4-6 chicken thighs (skin and fat removed)
2 tbsp thai fish sauce
1/2 tsp chili flakes
2 tbsp sweetener (I use stevia)
1/2 tsp ground pepper
2 cloves crushed garlic


Place everything in a food safe plastic bag and marinate for about 30 minutes.

Cook on BBQ or pan fry.


Syn free on red or extra easy
