What makes this salad recipe different?
Now, this sticky chicken salad isn’t any ordinary salad – I assure you. If I had to describe this salad in 2 words it would be a “mouth-watering masterpiece”.
Although the honey does hold a small syn value this recipe is perfect for anyone on Slimming World with a sweet tooth. The syns in the whole recipe is 7.5 so if you are making that for two I would could 3.5 syns each. Still, this is much better than a shop-bought salad covered in a dressing!
As you know on Slimming World it is important to have a lot of speed foods. More information about that here.
This sticky chicken salad recipe means that you can have a salad that is quick and easy to make whilst also being full of flavour and hot.
Using frozen chicken
Chicken for this or any other chicken recipes should never be cooked from frozen, there are so many issues with this that risk food poisoning. If you have just realised you only have frozen chicken there I have lots of tips to safely defrost chicken check them out in my defrosting chicken guide.

I try to ensure all of the recipes I make are accessible for everyone. This one is so cheap and easy you will wonder why you have not made it before!
I do not use obscure hard to find ingredients. I also believe that recipes should use as few ingredients as possible and avoid expensive ingredients.
We would all much rather spend money on holidays than expensive ingredients wouldn’t we?
Buying herbs and spices in bulk is something I really recommend. It can save a lot of money in the long term but also mean you never run out! I find putting them on Amazon subscribe and save helps too!
Shopping around to see which shops have offers on your usual products can make a big difference to your weekly shopping bill. Additionally don’t forget to check out the yellow sticker reductions and freeze what you can.
Frozen vegetables are nutritionally just as good as fresh usually so do keep an eye for those too to save money. Do you have any particular frozen vegetables you love? Do share them with me it is always nice to hear people’s recommendations.
Why this sticky chicken salad recipe is perfect on Slimming World

How many vegetables should I eat?
Slimming World advise you to have ⅓ of every meal as speed foods. Other than possibly for breakfast this is likely to be vegetables!
The reasons the specific vegetables are deemed as speed vegetables is because they have a low-calorie density.
This means if you eat 100g of spinach for example it is just 23 calories and obviously 100g of anything would fill you up significantly. On the other hand 100g of crisps, which would be just as filling, is around 536 calories!
Why are vegetables so great?
Whether you follow Slimming World or not adding vegetables to your meal not only adds vitamin c and all the nutrients in vegetables but will also help you lead a more balanced healthy lifestyle and potentially lose weight!
Don’t forget too that vegetables are high in fibre and as such you are less likely to get constipation and need my Slimming World constipation tips!
Frozen or canned vegetables?
Frozen or canned vegetables as long as they are not cooked or canned in any oil etc have the same nutritional value as fresh vegetables and are great to save money and time.
Here is a list of all the current Slimming World speed vegetables. Feel free to save it and of course share with your friends.
