One of my all time sandwich filler and jacket potato filling is Coronation Chicken.  The mild curry taste just has its own place on a sandwich or as a jacket potato filler.

Being a Slimming World member, I would have to syn any pre-made Coronation Chicken fillings.  This can range from 2 syns per tablespoon to 27 syns for a pot.  When you only have so many syns to use per day you start to look to create low-syn alternatives.

I thought about Coronation Chicken and it’s basically curried powder and yogurt right?  That’s all it seems to me, so I set off to experiment.  In the end, I add Curry Powder, Cinnamon, and Turmeric to yogurt and lighter than light mayonnaise to create the mixture.

Light, tasty and low syn – win win win!

The following makes one portion of Coronation Chicken


  • Chicken Breast Sliced (1)
  • Fat Free Natural Yogurt (100g)
  • Lighter than Light Mayonnaise (2 tbsp) – 1 Syn*
  • Raisins (14g) – 2 Syns*
  • Mild Curry Powder (1 tsp)
  • Ground Cinnamon (1/2 tsp)
  • Turmeric (1/2 tsp)


  1. Bring a pan of water to boil then add the chicken and simmer
  2. While the chicken is simmering away mix all the other ingredients in a bowl
  3. Once the chicken is cooked through, remove it from the water and cut into small chunks
  4. Add the chicken to the Coronation mixture
  5. Serve on either bread for a sandwich or on a jacket potato if using a filling
