A delicious low syn Slimming World friendly chicken bake recipe with chicken, sweet potato and spinach.  A delicious recipe that's perfect for calorie counting or low-calorie meals. 

Believe me, I am not exaggerating when I say that this is one of my favourite new meals that I have created! It was just sooooo tasty. 

Scroll down for the full recipe and ingredients, but there is some useful info before!

I wasn't even expecting to make it into a proper recipe, but it just tasted so nice that I knew you lot would appreciate it too!!

Packed with onions, mushrooms and sweet potato this dish is super filling, yet pretty low on carb too. 

If you wanted to make this dish vegetarian friendly, you could double the amount of sweet potato in the dish, and cut out the chicken.

It was ready in just 45 minutes too, meaning it is great for a weeknight meal. 

I used one of my favourite enamel baking trays to cook this dish, but you could use any baking tin or tray. 

I cooked off the chicken and veggies in a pan first to help reduce cooking time when everything is in the oven.

You could serve this on it's own or with a side salad.

You will need:

2 large skinless chicken breasts, diced. (Or diced chicken)
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
10 mushrooms, sliced
1 red onion, diced
1 chicken oxo cube (separate from the stock)
2 garlic cloves, minced
Large handful baby spinach
100ml chicken stock (can be made up from stock)
1/2 pack Low fat cream cheese (or use quark to save calories/syns)
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp smoked paprika
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 180 degrees. 

In a bowl, mix the garlic powder, onion powder and paprika, the chicken stick cube, crumbled up, then a large pinch of salt and pepper.

Sprinkle this mix over the diced chicken.

Spray a frying pan with low calorie cooking spray, and brown the chicken for 2-3 mins each side. Once done, remove the chicken and add it to your baking dish.

Add the sweet potatoes to the pan you used to cook the chicken, and fry for 3 minutes. 

Add the onion, mushrooms, and garlic to the sweet potatoes and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Turn off the heat, then add the stock and the cream cheese, and mix until the cheese has melted. Add more stock if it looks too thick, or more cream cheese if it looks too thin.

Pour this mix over the chicken, then top with the spinach. 

Place in the oven and bake for 18 to 20 minutes.
