Coconut Brazilian Chicken

This is the second new recipe of my get a grip week and this was delicious but it does have a kick. ­čś░ 

I found this recipe online in allrecipes but I have altered it to make it work for Slimming World and guess what it’s syn free…


1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground coriander 

1 tsp coriander leaves

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp cayenne pepper 

1 tsp tumeric

3 large chicken breasts cut into large chunks

1 large white onion

2 mince garlic gloves

1 tbspn minced ginger

Jalape├▒o’s (I used 1/4 of a jar) chopped up

7 vine tomatoes halved (average size of tomato)

3 fat free coconut yoghurts 

Coconut frylite

Salt to season


In a bowl mix the chicken with the paprika, turmeric, cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper, and coriander leaves. In a frying pan spray quite a bit of the frylite, then you want to cook the chicken. Make sure you turn this and cook through. 


 Then in a pot again spray with frylite and cook the onions for a few minutes and then add the garlic, ginger, jalape├▒o and tomatoes. Cook for 5 mins and then add the coconut yoghurts and pinch of salt. Mix well let cook for a few more minutes. 

I then added my chicken to the mix for 5 mins to let all the flavour mix. It was lovely. 

I served mine with boiled Jersey potatoes and brocoli for extra speed. 

It would also be lovely served with rice and I think it would complement even more if you squeezed some lime juice over the finished product but I had no limes to try this. This recipe does enough for 4 portions.
