wanted to share this recipe i found,my boyfriend and i made it last night for my parents and it went down a storm, they loved it! i didnt tell them it was a slimming world recipe as i thought they might have a pre-concieved idea that it would be tastless, but after theyd finished i told them and they were amazed
i have only just started learning to cook (i realise that this sounds totally pathetic as i am 22...always relied on ronald mcdonald for my meals ) but i found this really easy to make, hope you like it as much as we did.x

Spray a large, non stick frying pan with fry light and, when hot, add the chicken mixture and cook over a high heat. Stir and cook for 5-6 minutes and then add the dark soy sauce, sweetener, vinegar, paprika, chinese five spice and passata. Stir to mix well and bring the mixture to the boil.
Reduce the heat and cook gently for 3-4 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. check seasoning and serve immediately.
