If you love nothing more than a plateful of dirty fries after a busy day, we’ve got a special recipe just for you. Golden and fluffy chips, covered with tender chicken and a tangy tomato sauce, all topped with cheese – that’s right, we’ve put Slimming World dirty fries on the menu!
Although they sound incredibly indulgent, our dirty fries are completely slimming-friendly. The home-made wedges are oven baked rather than fried, and the topping is made from skinless chicken breast, chopped tomatoes and Worcestershire sauce. So if you’re following the Food Optimising plan, you can fill your plate for just 1 Syn per serving.
What I love about dirty fries is that you can easily get creative with your toppings. My favourite combo is tofu, black beans and tomatoes, finished off with some spicy jalapeños. You can also try covering your fries with beef chilli or barbecue pulled pork – or make it meat free with jackfruit. Just throw on your favourite ingredients and enjoy!
Dirty fries recipe
1 Syn per serving
ready in 1 hour
What you need:
1kg floury potatoes, such as Maris Piper or King Edward, cut into wedges
low-calorie cooking spray
1 onion, finely chopped
400g can chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2 cooked skinless and boneless chicken breasts, shredded
170g fat-free natural Greek yogurt
small pack fresh parsley, roughly chopped, reserving some to serve
1 tbsp Parmesan, coarsely grated
mixed salad leaves, to serve
What you do:
1. Preheat your oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6.
2. Put the wedges in a pan of boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Drain, then spread the wedges out on a non-stick baking tray. Spray with low-calorie cooking spray and season lightly. Cook for 45 minutes or until cooked through and golden, turning halfway.
3. While the wedges are cooking, put the onion, tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce and 2 crushed garlic cloves in a medium-size non-stick saucepan. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook for 20 minutes, stirring often. Stir the chicken into the sauce, season lightly, then simmer until the chicken is piping hot.
4. To make the garlic dip, mix together the yogurt, parsley and remaining garlic, then put to one side. Spoon the chicken mixture over the wedges, then evenly sprinkle over the reserved parsley and Parmesan. Divide between 4 plates and serve with a quarter of the garlic dip per person and some mixed salad leaves.
