Quick And Easy Budget Friendly Meal – Sticky Chicken
Any veteran slimmingworld member will have been cooking variations of this sticky chicken recipe for years. This isn’t just for dieters though, it’s a firm family favourite of ours, it’s so quick and easy to make plus there’s only 4 ingredients so it’s budget friendly too. Both my children absolutely love this. Just remember though if you are doing baby led weaning, babies under 1 year old can not have honey.
Ingredients to make Sticky Chicken
- Chicken – cut into chunks,strips, whatever takes your fancy. I used 3 chicken breasts chopped up to feed 2 adults, 1 child and 1 toddler.
- 3 tablespoons of honey, balsamic vinegar and soy sauce.
Method to make Sticky Chicken
- Mix honey,soy and balsamic together in a bowl and add chicken. Marinate in the fridge for a few hours if you have time (I often forget)
- Add chicken and marinade to a frying pan/wok and cook until the chicken is cooked and the sauce is thick, glossy and coating the chicken. That’s it, job done!
I usually serve it with savoury rice and salad, but it’s so versatile you could serve it with anything and add any extra bits you wanted. Next time I make it I’m going to add it to a stir fry, maybe even coat the chicken with some sesame seeds.
If you are following slimmingworld, the only syns you need to count are for your honey, I used to count 2 syns, double check that though.
