Baked plaice with tomato & basil | Recipe (Slimming World friendly)

Since I’ve seen all of the types of fish I can eat on Slimming World without counting the calories, I’ve decided to become a little more experimental with it! In our house we have ‘Fish Friday’ and it usually consists of scampi, cod/haddock, or mackerel. I’ve always loved the reduced shelf in the supermarket and now I’ve started raiding the fish section every week to see what I can find for the following week. One of my recent finds was plaice fillets, to which I added just a couple of simple ingredients which brought the flavour out just a little bit more. And it’s completely Slimming World friendly too!

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 2 fillets of plaice (de-boned)
  • lemon juice
  • sea salt
  • 3 baby tomatoes, halved
  • basil leaves
Method
  • Preheat oven to gas 5/375F/190C.
  • Place the fillets onto a baking tray.
  • Squeeze a little lemon juice and sprinkle a little salt onto each fillet.
  • Place 4 tomato halves onto each fillet.
  • Carefully tear the basil leaves and arrange on the fillets.
  • Cover the tray loosely with foil, then bake for around 20 minutes.
  • Serve immediately with other vegetables, and enjoy!

 

Pizza topped chicken | Recipe (Slimming World friendly)

Since I joined Slimming World last week I’ve been trying out a few new recipes and I hope it means I won’t get stuck in a food rut like I usually do when trying to lose weight! This recipe is a great alternative to a dough based pizza, and it’s all free on SW (30g cheese is a Healthy Extra)! It’s also great for the kids though and is fairly quick to prepare. It’s a nice change and really does taste yummy with lovely golden cheese.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 250g passata
  • 120g cheddar cheese
  • basil (I used dried but you can use fresh if desired)
Method
  • Preheat oven to gas 5/375F/190C.
  • Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of cling film and bash with a rolling pin to flatten them.
  • Place on a baking tray and divide the passata between them, coating the whole top of the breasts.
  • Sprinkle basil on then top with cheese.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, until cheese is golden & bubbling.
  • Enjoy!
