    Hey,
    Does anyone know the syn value for the Nandos sauce which you can buy from shops? I love adding it to my chicken at home but have no idea how bad it is for me. I have looked on the online SW syn values but can't find the sauce by itself?
    Thank you x

    The nandos "rub" is much lower in syns. Its between 3 and 4 syns (depending on which you get) for 25g and that coats about 4 chicken breasts.

    If you go for the chicken and take off the skin it's free. You just need to allow syns for any of the sauce you add to it (2 per level tbsp). Add a portion of spicy rice and the corn on the cob (about 1/2 syn for the sauce they cook it with) and you've got a full meal out following the EE plan from as little as 2 1/2 syns.

    If you still like massive portions then you can even go for the full chicken!

    Is the chicken really free if skin removed? Been for a nando's tonight and looks like may not have been as many syns as I had feared!

    Because it's marinated with the skin on it can't absorb enough of it to make any difference to it's value.
