Greek One Pot Rice Recipe | Slimming World




greek chicken rice slimming world friendly recipe gyros

Scroll down for full recipe & instructions 

I really love Greek food, and one of my favourite slow cooker recipes is my Greek Chicken recipe. It has all the flavour of a succulent gyros. I usually serve it with salad and in a pitta bread or wrap. I sometimes have some left over, so wanted to come up with a tasty new dish to use up the leftovers.

I love a one pot dish, so this Greek rice dish is the creation I came up with. Some tasty veg, stodgy rice and lots of yummy Greek flavours. I added some olives, which are usually 1.5 syns for 8. I used small slices and this dish serves for, so the syns are almost too small to mention. If you're eating all to yourself, then maybe add some syns!!

Shredded Cajun Chicken Recipe | Slimming World



I love my slow cooker so, so much. Not only does it produce awesome casseroles, soups and stews, it also makes the most melt in the mouth meat you can ever make in the home. I find it super helpful for batch making food, and it also creates the most succulent meat.

I often cook up some chicken breasts and add different flavours, like BBQ, Greek seasoning, or in this case Cajun spices.

I often make up a batch of chicken and keep it in the fridge for lunches, and it is always fun to find new flavours. I tried out this Cajun flavour combination and it has rapidly become one of my favourites!

Sweet Potato Dirty Fries | Slimming World



Full Recipe & Instructions At Bottom Of Post!

sweet potato dirty fries slimming world recipe onions bacon cheese

sweet potato dirty fries slimming world syn free low syn recipe



I first heard about dirty fries from watching American reality TV shows. I have this weird obsession with googling any restaurant that may pop up in a reality TV show, having a look at the menu and picking out what I would order if I was there. It's super fun- if you're a foodie like me I highly recommend it. You get to discover all sorts of new foods, especially if the restaurants are in America! Dirty fries are similar to loaded fries, in that you have some tasty fries topped with veg or meat, with cheese and loads of flavour. The good thing about them is that there really is not limit to the toppings that you can include, which means you can really get your creative juices flowing!

I topped mine with bacon, onions, mixed peppers and cheese, with a garlic yogurt topping. I've seen versions of these with gravy, sausage meat and loads and loads of different sauces. We've recently gotten into sweet potato fries in our house, so I wanted to give some dirty sweet potato fries a go.

I have found that the way to get perfect SP fries is to just bake them in the oven without any par boiling first.

Sweet Potato Dirty Fries Recipe

You will need:

4 medium Sweet Potatoes
Olive Oil Frylight
Salt & pepper
Pinch smoked paprika
1 onion
2 peppers
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp mustard powder
4 Bacon medallions (all fat removed)
160g Extra Light Cheese

Optional: Mix a couple of tablespoons of fat free yogurt with some minced garlic to make a sauce topping. 

Method:

Preheat oven to 190 degrees.


Cut into small rectangle fries shapes

Lay the chips out onto a baking tray spray with fry light so that they all have an even covering.

Sprinkle with the salt, pepper and smoked paprika.


Bake for 25 minutes, but make sure you check them regularly as they can burn in places, so may need to be turned half way through cooking. 

Meanwhile, prepare the topping. 

Finely dice the onions and peppers, and chop the bacon into small pieces. 

Fry off until the veg and bacon is cooked through. Add a splash of Worcestershire sauce, the mustard powder and add a pinch of salt & pepper.

Once the fries are cooked, put them on an oven proof plate or dish, load them up with the bacon and veg mix, then grate over the cheese, pop back in the oven until the cheese has melted, and serve!

My Top Foodie Money Saving Tips

It's September, which means that Christmas is really only just around the corner. It can be one of the most expensive times of the year, and also one of the best times. I like to try and save money wherever I can throughout the year, but September to November is where I really step things up, so I can have the Christmas treats I like. Here I am going to share my top foodie money saving tips, in the hope that it can help you too!

1. Make the most of your freezer

It's no secret that I am a fan of batch cooking. It saves so much time, and also money. Spending a few hours at the weekend prepping up food for for the rest of that week or month can be a super cost effective way of cooking and eating.

Check out some of my meal prepping posts for more ideas.


Another great tip is to freeze things like fresh meat so that it can last longer. The amount of times I have bought fresh meat, only to realise that it was super short dated.

I've started freezing herbs in ice cube trays as well, it makes perfect little bite sized flavourings! Have a read of ways to freeze herbs in this post.

2. Plan your meals before you shop

Instead of writing up a list of things I need, I write out a list of the meals I want to eat that week. I then only list the ingredients that I need for each meal. It means I send much less, and prevent myself from picking up all those cool 'special buys' that push the total price of the shop up!


3. Shop around 

Although having the comfort of the same supermarket and layout is nice, it could be costing you more money. Switching up the shop can save you lots of money, as can shopping in 2 different shops.

I have 1 main supermarket that I go to for meat and vegetables, and then get the rest of my bits from one of the bigger brands,

4. Buy own brand supermarket products

There can be a certain snobbery when it comes to supermarket own brands. Personally, I have been using them for years- especially when it comes to ingredients for cooking.

For example, own bran Tomato Passata comes in at 20p a carton, in comparison to £1.50 for branded. I use websites such as mySupermarket to compare the prices of normal household items, to ensure I get everything at the best price!

This is also great for things like herbs and spices. Why pay more for the same thing?

5. Make the most of your leftovers

I have a really bad habit of cooking way more than my boyfriend and I can eat in one meal, so I have to make the most of my leftovers. Things like pasta are delicious as leftovers for a take to work lunch.



I love to cook a roast at the weekend, then feed us off the leftovers for days! Like this leftover beef that I turned into potato pancakes!

Sometimes though life can thrown the unexpected at us, unexpected car repair bills, broken appliances- anything can happen. For times like this, CashLady offer short-term loans and pride themselves on caring for their customers, want to ensure they have an easy journey and know all information about committing to a short-term loan. This way, you Christmas savings can be kept untouched all year, until the time comes to start decking the halls!

Great Food & Drink Show  passes

This year an exciting foodie event was held at Westpoint Exeter, The Great Food and Drink Show. With an incredible line up of top chefs,  and a range of hand-picked local food and drink producers and retailers.

me and tom kerridge

The Saturday headliner was Tom Kerridge, the Westcounrty born Michelin starred chef with an amazing stage presence and infectious laugh. I have been a massive fan of his for a long time, so was super excited to get the opportunity to watch a cooking demo from him.

Alongside Tom on the line up was the inspirational Polly Guy, TV chef, food blogger and winner of Come Dine With Me Champion of Champions!

Holding the show together was friend of Sugar Pink Food, Jim from Exeter Cookery School!

First up we watched the amazing Polly Guy show us how to make an incredible lemon dessert, made with her own lemon curd. I was lucky enough to get to try a spoonful, and it was delicious! She also sells preserves so I will definitely be buying ALL of the available lemon curd!

Polly was accompanied by Jim from Exeter Cookery School.

Next up was the main man himself, who taught me a potentially life changing tip that I will by trying out and writing about in a separate post soon! He cooked a mackerel starter where he cooked the fish with a blow torch! A chilli con carne and a blueberry pudding with bacon. The smells were absolutely amazon, and sadly I didn't get to taste any. I did, however, get to meet the man himself- which really made this the perfect day!

Another personal highlight was finding a stall that listed the syn value of their tasty chocolate kisses! We got a couple to try, a prosecco and a white chocolate.

The treats that we took home for the day were some Slimming World friendly chocolate kisses, some vodka and gin spritz and salted caramel cream liqueur!

Great Food & Drink Show

We also picked up some drinks from Silver Swift, some tasty vodka spritz! One is 'Tipsy Ice Tea' and the other 2 are 'Basil Blush', they are super tasty.

One of the absolute treats we brought home was this salted caramel liqueur from Cusan Liqueurs! 

We had a great day out, but just wish there had been a few more retailers for us to look around.
