For the chicken:

  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 level tbsp runny honey
  • 2 tbsp passata
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp celery salt
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • 3 tsp barbecue seasoning (we used Schwartz Classic BBQ Herb & Spice Blend)
  • 8 skinless and boneless chicken thighs (not the frozen variety)

For the garnish and fries:

  • 1 level tsp extra-light mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp fat free natural fromage frais
  • 60g wholemeal roll, halved
  • lettuce, sliced tomato and sliced red onion
  • 250g floury potatoes, peeled and cut into thin fries
  • low calorie cooking spray
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper




  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6. Put the vinegar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, honey, passata, garlic, pepper, celery salt, ground coriander, chilli powder and 1 teaspoon of barbecue seasoning in a bowl and mix well. Make a few cuts in each chicken thigh using a sharp knife and toss them in the marinade to coat evenly.
  2. Tip into a non-stick roasting tin and sprinkle over the remaining barbecue seasoning. Cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until cooked through, basting with the juices occasionally.
  3. Allow the rest of the chicken to cool completely then divide into 4 portions. At this point you can freeze for up to 1 month. Defrost thoroughly before reheating.
  4. Cook the fries in a saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for 1-2 minutes then drain and spread out on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Spray with low calorie cooking spray and cook in the the oven at 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6. for 12-15. Season with salt.
  5. Meanwhile, shred the chicken with two forks and, if you cooked ahead, reheat thoroughly in the microwave on high for 1½ minutes.
  6. Mix the mayonnaise and fromage frais, season to taste and spread on to the roll. Fill the roll with the lettuce, tomato, onion and shredded chicken.
