Diet Coke Chicken – Slimming World (GF)

IMG_20160709_162551.jpg

OK, I finally opened the can and made Diet Coke chicken.  It was really Pepsi Max chicken but you get the idea.

Once you get over the initial horror of putting a fizzy drink into a meal you’ll realise it’s really great.  It actually tastes fantastic!  A lovely, slightly sweet and rich sauce.  As I was eating it I couldn’t believe it was synfree!  This will definitely be one of my regular meals now.

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts cut into pieces
  • Frylight
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 2 peppers chopped into chunks
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2tsp Henderson’s Relish (or Worcestershire sauce if you can have gluten)
  • 1tbsp of Kikkoman gluten free soy sauce (or regular soy sauce if you can have gluten)
  • 4 tsp tomato puree
  • 8 tbsp passata
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs
  • 1 330ml can of Diet Coke
  • 200ml chicken stock (I used Knorr stock cubes)

Method:

  1. Fry the chicken, onion and peppers in Frylight for 4-5 minutes.
  2. Add the diet coke, stock, passata, tomato purée, garlic, Henderson’s Relish, Kikkoman gluten free soy sauce and mixed herbs and stir.
  3. Bring to the boil, cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.

Serve with: mash, new potatoes, rice…

This recipe is perfect for Slimming World as all the ingredients are synfree.  I was really surprised that the Amoy noodles were as they are part cooked – but I checked online and they are.  The whole dish is gluten-free if you use gluten-free soy sauce.  I used Kikkoman Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce but there are others on the market.

Ingredients:

  • 200g diced chicken (cooked)
  • Amoy straight to wok ribbon rice noodles 150g pouch
  • Pak Choi chopped
  • Handful of mangetout
  • Yellow and red peppers diced
  • 1 onion
  • Frylight
  • Ginger paste
  • Soy Sauce (Gluten free variety)

Method:

  1. In Frylight lightly fry the onion and peppers.
  2. Add the cooked chicken pieces and ginger paste and stir well.
  3. After 2 minutes add the pak choi and mangetout and a splash of soy sauce.
  4. After 1 minute add the noodles with a few more splashes of soy sauce.
  5. Stir for 1-2 minutes to cook through.
