Diet friendly white wine sauce

I’m digging out a few of my favourite Slimming World style recipes that I concocted in a bid to inspire me into cooking more healthy meals that don’t lack in taste. This recipe went down particularly well when I made it. I served it over chicken wrapped in bacon stuffed with a HEX of mozzarella. The sauce works out at 2 syns per serving when split between 4 people using dry white wine.


1 glass white wine (250ml)
100g mushrooms chopped
tsp flour
1 chicken stock cube/chicken bovril
water (as much as required)
Fat free fromage frais (to taste)
1/2 tsp thyme


1. Fry the mushrooms in frylite until cooked
2. Add the flour and cook for 1 – 2 minutes
3. Add the wine gradually, stirring constantly
4. Add the stock cube or chicken bovril and enough water to create a thin sauce
5. Bring to the boil which will reduce and thicken the sauce
6. Add the thyme and stir
7. Remove from the heat and add as much fat free fromage frais as you require to make a creamy white wine sauce that suits your taste
8. Enjoy!

      It’s a pain isn’t it, I bet you don’t get double cream there either eh! Creme Fraiche (low/fat free) would work too if you can get your hands on it, or cream with a lower fat content
