Sugar Free Skinny Chicken Tandoori, with Yogurt & Mint Dip

From my 5 Day Sugar Free Shift Plan, try this Skinny Chicken Tandoori. I am not a ‘diet’ kinda woman, I don’t even like the ‘d’word. I am a Wellness Warrior (I love that phrase!). Wellness comes through the balance of physical and emotional health, however food is obviously a HUGE part of wellness and the very best change we can make to promote our optimum wellness is to remover SUGAR from our diets – including alcohol sugars.

I find that people are daunted by the thought though, they feel, as with alcohol that they will be missing out on something. I promise you, the way you will look and feel will remove any doubts.

A sugar free life really is so simple and is easily achieved just a few tweaks. The focus is on whole foods, simply prepared, minus all the processed crap. By removing simple carbs (which break down quickly into sugars in your body), and upping your healthy fats – no low fat rubbish here, you will feel fuller longer and your waist will literally shrink!

Just 5 days on my Sugar Free Shift Plan and the physical cravings you didn’t even know you had will be gone. I promise you.

Now, I need to say here that the physical craving is easily dealt with, but if you find yourself returning to high sugar foods when your mood is lower, you need to check out my End Emotional Eating page and my Break Free From Emotional Food Habits page. I don’t want to be a quick fix and both the emotional and physical cravings need to be addressed for long term health, wellness and that shrunk waist.

So to whet your appetite, and to show you how super easy my 5 Day Sugar Free Shift Plan is, here’s  sugar free family curried chicken which is absolutely delicious – can you imagine any takeaway being as healthy? Or any shop bought sauce being sugar free? – hell no!

I serve this either with cauli rice, mixed with chopped avocado & chilli mixed in, or a huge salad or just left over steamed veg, and of course with my cooling Yogurt & Mint dip. Happy eating xx

Ingredients

  • juice 1 lemon
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 red onions, finely chopped

For the marinade

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/2 tbsp ground coriander

Method

Mix the lemon juice with the paprika and red onions in a large shallow dish. Slash each chicken thigh three times, then turn them in the juice and set aside for 10 mins.

Mix all of the marinade ingredients together and place in a large plastic sandwich bag, add the chicken and massage together lightly.  Chill for at least 1 hr or overnight as this can be done up to a day in advance.

Either wrap in foil and bake in a pre-heated over 200 / 180 for 25 mins, or heat the grill. Lift the chicken pieces onto a rack over a baking tray. Brush over a little oil and grill for 8 mins on each side or until lightly charred and completely cooked through.
