    My boyfriend is one of those lucky types who manages to be a really picky eater (no fruit/veg etc) and still stay lean. He basically only likes frozen chicken things like dippers and nuggets etc for tea with chips.

    I don't mind making SW chips and mash that we can both eat and i could have loads of veg but does anyone know any low syn frozen chicken products that we could both enjoy because i'd rather not have us eating totally different food/ have to cook 2 different dinners.

    Hiya, the Birds Eye Chicken Chargrills arent bad at 3 1/2 or 4 dependent on flavours and the Birds eye cracked pepper seasoning are 3 1/2 so there not too bad (extra easy values)

    Hi Sarahsparkle, best of luck with the plan.

    I'm afraid the only frozen chicken thing I can think of that's low syn is the barbecue chicken chunks that you can get from Iceland - I think the whole pack is 1.5 syns on Red or Extra Easy. I'm sure someone will be along soon who's more knowledgeable than me!

    I believe there are a lot of Quorn chicken-style products that you could have instead and still cook them in the oven in the same way but I don't eat them myself so can't recommend any in particular I'm afraid.

    the quorn southern style strips are 1.5 syns each(i use 3 or 4 per meal so 4.5 or 6 syns)...they are divine and well worth the syns every now and then!!!

    They aren't frozen but if u look on the marks and spencers syns brands and search chicken breasts there are a few come up free like Cajun and I think in red wine and mushroom sauce is either free r really low :0)

    My husband is a picky eater & I sometimes do two separate meals but if not I just plonk food down in front of him & tell him it's that or nothing but make sure that if he won't eat that then I can freeze it & take it to work!

    I have the same fussy eater...must be a man thing :giggle:

    I just cave and do 3 different meals! i have my SW one, he has a meal he wants and i do our daughter a mixed variety. I think it may be easier buying fresh chicken breasts and getting him to eat that!

    OMG there are more of us out there!!! Thank heavens. Isn't it a pain in the back side!!! I blame the parents myself lol!

    Anyways my lovely bf :p also wont eat anything green or healthy looking. But i have mastered a few dishes that he has sampled and likes. Regular meals include

    chicken stuffed with garlic laughing cows served with sw chips
    Omelettes (putting veggies in just mine)
    Spag bol (he doesnt realise i use tin tomatoes lol)
    Chilli (again doesnt realise that beans are healthy!!)
    Fish and sw chips (without batter)
    gammon, sw chips, egg
    Full breakfast using joes sausages, bacon, egg, beans
    pasta and sauce


    Failing that i keep a frozen pizza in the freezer alongside some other bits and pieces but not much as SW takes priority in this house!!! LOL

    Thank you so much guys all those ideas are great! We should have a competition of who has the pickiest eaters haha. Boyfriend won't eat: Lamb, Pork, Pasta, Potatoes (except chips), any fruit or veg (except bananas), tomatoes or anything in tomato sauce, eggs, cheese, beans, bread... the list goes on!

    i know it's a nightmare i try to be healthy but when i cook his food as well i can't resist pinching a chicken nugget or a couple of chips and it all adds up... Don't get me started on the sugary drinks!

    I cook different meals for OH most of the time. He's very picky and faddy so if he gets a fad on say chicken and rice, he'll eat it every day for weeks on end until his next fad comes along.

    The syn-free KFC recipe in the recipe forum is an excellent way to cook something you can both eat. My husband who LOVES KFC also really loves it when I make this.

    I must admit to cooking different/ separate meals. I don't really have a problem with it as I can't really see what difference it makes if you've got the oven on!
    My other half isn't particularly picky, he eats most things but doesn't really like diet equivalents and seeing as he doesn't have a weight problem, I can't blame him for wanting 'the real thing'!

    maybe so, but to be honest, if I didn't pile on weight just by looking at food, I'd eat whatever I wanted too!
