Step by Step Method

Step 1

Put chicken in a non-stick skillet. Pour catsup and diet soda over the chicken. Turn heat to medium-high and cook chicken for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

VARIATIONS: Add packet of dry onion soup mix, mushrooms, onions and pepper/ Add orange soda and some ginger and garlic/ Add Diet Dr. Pepper instead of Diet Coke/ Use BBQ sauce instead of catsup/ Use pork chops instead of chicken/ Use Diet Coke with Lime and salsa for a Mexican flavor.

I scaled back for one serve using boneless skinless chicken thighs which initially was a bad move as within 5 minutes the liquid was boiled dry, so removed chicken and deglazed pan with the rest of the sugar free coke and add some more low sugar and salt BBQ sauce and simmered for twenty minutes with the lid off and then simmered for 10 minutes with the lid slightly askew and the end result was a glossy thick sauce and some tender tasty chicken. Thank you sweetcheeks, made for What's on the Menu tag game at FF&F.

OMG this was so good, it just goes to show that even recipes with few ingredients can be a hit and this one was! thanks very much for posting this recipe here! oops I should mention that I added in some minced garlic and browned the chicken first.

Wow! Who would have thought that ketchup and diet pepsi could make such a tasty sauce for chicken. Thanks for sharing.
