    Was going to have this for my tea as been out all day and couldnt be bothered to cook but did a quick reky on the 20 to 1 sum and made it about 35syns so changed my mind.

    Could someone please work out the syns for me as chicken & pasta are possibly free making it a lot lower and possibly able for me to eat

    The 20 calorie to 1 syn rule only works with foods which don't contain free foods. On extra easy your pasta and chicken would be part of a free food allowance.

    I used syns calculator online and got this - its an approximation though.

    2½ Syns per package/portion on Extra Easy 4½ Syns per package/portion on Green 2½ Syns per package/portion on Original

    Thanks Pickle87 that sounds a lot better, thought it would be lower than what I made it but wasnt sure with the free foods taken out. Will buy it again because it is lovely and well worth the £1.00 it costs from Iceland

    Dont know what I am doing wrong but when I put these calcuations into the online calculator I come up with the following.

    19½ Syns per package/portion on Extra Easy 19½ Syns per package/portion on Green 22 Syns per package/portion on Original

    Can someone check I am doing it correctly please, have used the chicken and the pasta as free food.
