    Hi Tracie,
    I've never done this myself but I know people have tried this before - check out the KFC Chicken thread under the recipe forum, a few people on there have tried it as a chicken coating.

    Hmmm, this will open up the whole "food abuse" topic, I can sense it now.
    Personally I wouldn't as you can use a lot of cous cous doing this and it's not being used in it's proper form (ie with water added) so wouldn't be satisfying.
    Up to you though - I know people do this.

    You are using it as part of a meal so I see no food abuse issues and would take it as syn free

    I have made chicken goujons using cous cous, and you make it up as per packet instructions i.e. add the water to it otherwise it would be teeth cracking crunchy IMO.!!!

    A non slimming world friend mentioned using Smash in meatballs, giving a gluten free option. Would this be syn free and could it be used to coat chicken etc? Ive not used it before so don't know its texture.

    Maybe for next time you could use polenta, but this would also need to be syned.

    I've made biscuits & rolled them in dried polenta & baked them yummmmmmmy. The polenta is crunchy & light, if that makes sense.

    What about trying some crushed scan bran to coat the chicken. Haven't tried it, but apparently this works really well on scotch eggs!
