Homemade is best made, and these Slimming World Chicken Nuggets are just 1½ Syns per portion. Nuggets are a fast-food favourite, but when they’re deep-fried they’re not so healthy. These chicken nuggets are baked, not fried and are so easy to make. The whole family will love them!

Slimming World Chicken Nuggets
Why buy chicken nuggets when you can easily make your own and know exactly what goes into them?
Yes, I know it’s easy to dump something out of a bag and bung it in the oven, but these Slimming World chicken nuggets are so easy to make and taste great too.
Plus compare the Syns per portion below with the 1 Syn per nugget if you were to buy them in. That’s a HUGE difference!
This recipe for breaded chicken nuggets serves 4 and has 1½ Syns per serving.
This recipe has been adapted from an official SW magazine. I usually adapt recipes to suit my family’s personal tastes.
This might be leaving out an ingredient we don’t like (e.g., celery), adding more or fewer ingredients (e.g., chilies or spices), or tweaks to the way the original recipe is prepared (e.g., cooking in the oven instead of under the grill/broiler).
As a family, we are all trying to eat healthier and lose some weight, so you can rest assured that any changes I make are going to be Slimming World friendly.
So for example, I wouldn’t replace 5% beef mince (Free) with 20% beef mince (not Free) or add olive oil to a recipe without including the Syn count.
All of the SW friendly recipes I share on The Purple Pumpkin Blog have been made by me and tried and tested by my family.
I hope you enjoy the recipes I share! I’m posting them to keep me focused, motivated, and on-track to reach my goals. I hope they help you to reach yours too!
