Kfc is many people's (including me) ideal take away meal. There is something about the crispy chicken with a ranch dip, baked beans and a side of spicy fries that makes you think you might have had a taste of heaven. What makes it even better is your order is prepared in seconds, making it an even better cheat meal or stress reliever. I had kfc take away about twice a week.
Everything was all fun and games before i started gaining weight and couldn't fit into my clothes anymore. That's when a friend enlightened me on the number of calories i ingest in the kfc meals i love with my whole heart. It is at that moment that i decided to start watching my calories more keenly hence the discovery of slimming world recipes.
All of the slimming world recipes are weight watchers friendly, taste good, and fit right into your diet. if it is not obvious, my favorite one has to be the slimming world kfc chicken. I'm more comfortable eating and preparing it as i know the ingredients are healthy and won't lead me back to my obese days.

My family gets excited every time i cook the kfc chicken slimming world version as they absolutely love it. I mostly serve with syn free baked fries, coleslaw salad, or buttered corn. This ensures it sticks to my slimming diet while my family indulges in the flavor-filled food.
Ideally, this meal is best served hot if you intend to taste all the flavor. But if some pieces remain or you want to share some with your colleagues from work, let the kfc chicken cool for about two hours. You should then place them in an airtight lid before plopping in the refrigerator.
Try to eat the chicken within three to four days. Any more days and the KFC should be on its way to the dustbin. If you love this fakeaway recipe as much as i do, check out the slimming world chicken nuggets version here. All our recipes will help you lose weight as well as to stan your taste buds.
