Our take on fried chicken tastes so good thanks to our irresistible spiced coating and breadcrumbs!
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 25–30 minutes
Syns per serving:
½ cup (5oz) tomato paste
2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp garlic salt
1 tbsp dried mixed herbs
freshly ground black pepper
1 egg white
1 (2oz) whole-wheat bun, torn into pieces
12 skinless and boneless chicken thighs, all visible fat removed
low-calorie cooking spray
small handful of finely chopped fresh flat leaf parsley, for garnish
Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with non-stick parchment paper.
Mix the tomato paste, cayenne pepper, garlic salt and mixed herbs in a large bowl, and season with black pepper to taste. Whisk the egg white in a separate clean glass bowl until stiff peaks form, then fold the egg white into the tomato paste mixture.
Process the torn roll in a food processor until you have fine breadcrumbs, then transfer them to a plate.
Dip the chicken thighs in the egg mixture and then roll in the breadcrumbs to coat evenly. Arrange the thighs in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Spray with low-calorie cooking spray and bake for 25–30 minutes or until cooked through.
Sprinkle with parsley and serve hot with Slimming World fries, coleslaw and lemon wedges.
