    It depends what it was cooked in. Plain grilled chicken is free, chicken roasted in frylight or dry roasted is free, but if its been cooked with a lot of oil then its entirely possible that the chicken has absorbed some as part of the cooking process and thats why it has syns.

    To be safe, if the website says it has syns, count the syns it says. Sorry :(

    What information did you put into the calculator? If it was the nutritional information from the packet, then that would have included the skin and any fat, so that could be why there were so many syns.

    If all you ate was chicken, with no skin and no fat, then that would be free.

    Guys theres a silly rumour that the supermarkets inject thier roasted chickens from the hot counter with fat to make them look more juicy etc.

    Anyways, whilst i doubt they are 100% syn free, because lets face it- supermarkets arn't using frylight, i count them as free aslong as i remove the skin.... i used to buy 2 a week to have with salads ect whilst i was loosing all my weight and its never affected my losses. I really wouldnt worry. xx
