    Hairy Bikers Somerset Chicken - or pork too

    Now the original Hairy Bikers recipe is LOADED with syns - cream, butter - and if you want to do it you wipe out your whole 15 syns for the day!

    But I've adapted it to be more SW friendly for a red/EE day to be just
    5 syns per serving plus 1 HexA and 1 HexB.

    It's a lovely dinner party menu that you can serve to friends without them realising you are on any sort of diet whatsoever! Fantastic.

    INGREDIENTS (FOR 6)
    6 boneless chicken breasts, skin removed
    Fry Light
    2 onions, sliced
    4 tbsp plain flour
    2 tbsp grain mustard
    110 g button mushrooms, sliced
    250 ml chicken stock (made from syn-free cubes, powder or bouillon)
    300 ml dry cider
    125 ml fat free fromage frais
    2 dessert apples, peeled and sliced into batons
    1 tbsp finely chopped sage leaves
    252 g Low Fat Cheddar cheese, grated (42 g per person as HexA)
    6 baked potatoes (227 g each as HexB)

    METHOD
    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (gas mark 6). Season the chicken breasts with salt and black pepper.
    2. Heat a large saute pan and add some Fry Light.
    3. Fry the chicken breasts in batches for 1-2 mins on each side until golden. Put them into a deep-sided oven tray and roast for 25 mins until the chicken is cooked through.
    4. Add a bit more Fry Light if needed and cook the onions for 4-5 mins until softened but not coloured. Add the flour and mustard to the pan and cook for another 2 mins. Add the apples and button mushrooms and cook for 1 min. Pour in the chicken stock and bring to the boil, then pour in the cider. Bring back to the boil and cook for 5 mins. Add the sage, cook for another 5 mins, then season with salt and black pepper.
    5. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 1-2 mins and then carefully add the fromage frais a tablespoonful at a time - stirring continuously so it doesn't curdle or go lumpy.
    6. Take the chicken out of the oven and pour the sauce into the dish to cover the chicken completely. Preheat the grill to high. Sprinkle the cheese over the chicken and place under the grill for 5 mins until the cheese is melted, golden and bubbling.
    7. Serve with the jacket potatoes and some veg - I love sliced runner beans and carrots with it to add lots of colour.

    ENJOY!

    I've also done this recipe with pork fillet (tenderloin) and it is equally as good!

    You could eliminate 2 syns per person by using English Mustard powder as this is free but I think it would alter the taste and I'm not sure what quantity you would need to use.

    Do try it - it IS amazing.
    I love the Hairy Bikers recipes and this is one of the few I've managed to adapt to make it a lot more SW friendly.

    Recently discovered Quark (not been able to find it here in Spain) so going to try it this week and will report back!

    Oooh - did it with quark on Thursday night and it is gobsmackingly brilliant. Much better than Fromage Frais.

    Used slightly more than FF - about 40 gm per person.

    Glad you enjoyed it. I'm making this for friends next week to see if they work out it's been "dietised" as the last time I did it for them it was with double cream and loads of butter!
