Smoky paprika chicken (slimming world friendly)

I know those seasoning packets seem like a good idea but you can easily recreate the flavours at home without spending so much money or using any syns. So if you buy those seasoning packets then please give this a try there is all the flavour but no e numbers or additives. It also means you can adjust the spices to how you like them.

I used chicken thighs as I prefer the flavour but you could easily use chicken breasts or even lean pork chops would be good.


Paprika Chicken


8 chicken thighs or 4 chicken breasts (skin and excess fat removed)
2 red peppers (sliced)
1 large onion (sliced)
1 tsp garlic powder (or use fresh if you prefer)
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp tomato puree
salt and pepper
low calorie spray oil



Place the onion and peppers in an ovenproof dish or small roasting tin and place the chicken on top. Make 3 cuts across the chicken, this helps to allow the flavours to go into the chicken.

Spread  the tomato puree evenly onto the chicken and then sprinkle on the garlic powder and paprika, Season well with salt and pepper and spray lightly with the spray oil.

Bake at Gas 6 /200/ 400 for 30-40 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.


Syn free on extra easy.
