    My daughter has won a meal at Nandos in a competition at school:D

    It is for a meal platter, which consists of a whole roast chicken, either a large or two regular sides and two bottomless drinks.

    We have never been there before, so quite looking forward to it.

    But, my question is, if I only eat the meat of the chicken, and leave the skin, would this be free?

    As when I roast a chicken at home, it is free, I don't know whether Nando's do something to it, that would stop it being free

    You can ask for it with no marinade (I think), saying that - KFC with skin removed is "allegedly" free so I don't see why this shouldn't be.
    If you have corn, ask for no butter in case they put it on.

    I love Nandos, haven't been for ages though. Enjoy it!

    Im afraid even the 'plain' chicken has been marinated. As a nandos addict ive found this very difficult on the sw diet as quarter chicken is 22 syns :-(

    Thanks everyone x

    I had intended to not eat the skin, but it was far too tasty to waste :eek:

    Oh well, you've got to enjoy yourself as well as doing SW ;)
