When I announced to my boyfriend a couple of years back that we were having slimming friendly Diet Coke chicken for dinner, he had a look on his face that was somewhere in between disgust and bewilderment.
Let’s be honest, it sounds odd at best. At worst, it sounds like something a group of teenagers might knock up if you left them to their own devices with the contents of your fridge, and tasked them with making dinner.
There’s a reason why this recipe is so popular amongst dieters though, and that’s because it’s absolutely delicious.
The result is a mildly sweet and sticky sauce, packed with veggies and a taste that’s somewhere between barbecue and a Chinese takeaway.
With just 245 calories per portion, it’s likely to quickly become one of your favourites.
Even my boyfriend is a convert now. Here’s what you need to know…

I like to serve this dish with a portion of egg fried rice.
Simply cook rice according to packet instructions, heat a pan and spritz with low calorie cooking spray, and stir fry the rice, an egg, and a few dashes of soy sauce. You can also add some peas, sweetcorn, or finely chopped spring onions.
Alternatively, why not try making some slimming chips?
Once you’re fully initiated into the Diet Coke chicken life, you might feel inclined to spread your wings a little bit.
If that sounds like you, be sure to try my Fanta chicken. A Syn free alternative to sweet and sour, it’s one of my go-to dishes and is super easy to make…
