I love a good KFC Fakeaway, and it was all over Facebook recently, that the KFC Double Down burger was finally coming to the UK! 

This is my Slimming World friendly version of the KFC Double Down Recipe 

Instead of your usual burger, the bread bun is replaced with 2 bits of chicken, so you have bacon BBQ sauce and cheese sandwiched between the chicken, heaven, and full of syns!

I made it my mission to create a syn free version (if using both the healthy extras!) Some KFC fakeaways use smash or cornflakes as a coating. 

Fancy some more recipes?

Thinking of trying out this recipe? If you do, I would love to see a picture of your creation! @SugarPinkFood on Twitter, @sugarpinkfood_sw on instagram or Sugar Pink Food: Slimming World Recipes on Facebook! 

Here are some of your creations:

The BBQ sauce is homemade, but if you don't wish to make it, syn some sauce from a bottle. I like to make up a batch of BBQ sauce and keep it in the fridge.  

The trick to being able to eat this without a knife and fork, is to wrap tin foil around the bottom half of it, like a wrapper! Keeps it all together and your hands clean.
