7 Syn Chinese Fakeaway | Slimming World

We drove past a Chinese takeaway the other day and both drooled at the thought!  I promised myself that I would try and make a Slimming World friendly Fakeaway with all of my favourites- Sweet and sour chicken, crispy shredded beef, beef chow mein and egg fried rice!

I was surprised to find out that 5 prawn crackers from a Chinese takeaway is only 1.5 syns, so we had these too!
