    There are a couple of free ones I use, both are a bit spicy but I like them.

    Sweet Chilli - 1/2 syn per serving (was in Jan/Feb magazine)
    4 crushed garlic cloves, 4fl oz (113ml) soy sauce; 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce; 2 tbsp harissa powder (I couldn't find this so use paste instead). Mix everything together and pour over chicken or quorn. I usually marinade for a couple of hours before cooking but you don't really need to. Cook in over at 200 or GM 6.

    The other one is from the new Christmas book - haven't tried it yet but have chicken drumsticks marinading in the fridge at the moment to cook this evening. This is free on EE (probably red as well but not sure! as I don't do Red)

    12 drumsticks, skinless
    3tbs tandoori powder; 1 tsp ground turmeric; 2 tsp paprika; 4 tbsp white wine vinegar; 10 tbsp fat free natural yoghurt, 3 crushed garlic cloves, 1cm (1/2") piece of ginger, grated.

    Mix all the marinade ingredients together, then toss the drumsticks in the marinade. Chill for 6-8 hours (or overnight) covered in the fridge.

    Grill for 20-30 minutes turning frequently until cooked through.
    (I'm actually going to cook mine on a rack in the oven which I'm hoping will work).

    Serve with raita (225g (9oz) fat free natural yoghurt, mixed with chopped mint, tomato, red onion and chopped cucumber.

    there are loads of ideas of my blog if you google SlimmingEats. The yakitora chicken skewers are yummy.

    also if you do a search in the recipe section on here you will find heaps of ideas too.
