Diet Coke Chicken

Diet Coke Chicken

4-5 skinless boneless chicken breasts (20oz)
1 Cup Ketchup
1 – 12 oz. Can of Diet Cola

Put chicken in a non-stick skillet. Pour ketchup and diet cola over the chicken.
Turn heat to Medium high and cook chicken for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Cover, reduce heat to simmer and cook another 15-20 minutes. Remove lid, and cook until sauce thickens and sticks to chicken.

Sauce will taste like BBQ and the chicken is very tender.

Note: You can also make shredded BBQ chicken sandwiches with this. Simply use 2 forks and pull the chicken apart about 15 minutes before it's finished cooking. You could also to add some black pepper and diced onions to the cola chicken right when you start to cook it.

add a packet of dry onion soup mix to it.
Add mushrooms, onion, peppers, etc.
Orange soda and some ginger and garlic. Turned into an oriental flavored dish
Diet Dr Pepper instead of diet cola
Barbeque sauce rather than ketchup.
Pork Chops instead of chicken
Sausage instead of chicken
Diet coke with lime (instead of plain diet coke) and salsa (instead of ketchup) – same measurements

I was looking for something different to do with my chicken breast tonight and came to your blog and found this. It was wonderful. I used Diet Dr. Pepper just because that is what I had. Delicious!! Thanks. I love reading your blog!

Thank you Hollie. I haven't tried Diet Dr. Pepper. I'm sure my husband would love that. I'm so glad you liked it!
