Slimming World Diet Coke Chicken Recipe

Whilst I'm not strictly following any sort of plan at the moment like Slimming World/Weight Watchers etc, I am trying to eat a bit better and trying to get back to making all of ours meals from scratch. Diet Coke Chicken is a Slimming World favourite and it's one I made quite a few times when we lived in Leicester but not much since then so I gave it a go recently and I am so glad I did. It was so much better than I remember. There are quite a few versions of this online but this is just how I like to make it now, let me know if you give it a try!
Slimming World Diet Coke Chicken
Ingredients: for 2 people
250g chicken breast fillets
1 pepper finely diced, or a few handfuls of frozen
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
200ml chicken stock
1 can of diet coke
1 tbsp of tomato puree
a dash of soy sauce and a dash of Hendersons relish if you have it
salt, pepper, garlic salt and mixed herbs

1. Chop the chicken breast fillets into chunks and fry in frylight
2. When the chicken is nearly cooked, add in the diced pepper and cook until soft
3. Pour in the chopped tomatoes, chicken stock and can of diet coke
4. Next add in the tomato puree along with a dash of soy sauce and relish, stir well then add in your seasoning. I used salt, pepper, garlic salt and mixed herbs
5. Leave to simmer for around 40 minutes, it will be quite saucy to start but thickens quite quickly in the last ten minutes or so, so just keep an eye on it and keep stirring
6. When the sauce has been simmering and has reduced down, serve with rice. I usually use 1 boil in the bag rice for two of us 

This actually tastes very much like sweet and sour sauce but it's far better for you I imagine! You can pack it full of more vegetables if you'd prefer, I just used what we had and you can also switch to passata if you'd prefer a smoother sauce over chopped tomatoes. I think it's one of those recipes you can experiment with a little which I like, you also don't just have to stick to diet coke, I've seen people use Dr Pepper before and there is even a fanta chicken version which I have a recipe for also!

This sounds really good! I've never heard of using soda to cook chicken, but I'm definitely interested in trying this! :)
