Cola Chicken (mea3)
I've made this a bunch of times for my family and they love it. It's called Cola Chicken and this is what you need/do:
4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
1 cup catsup
12 oz can of diet cola
Put chicken in non-stick skillet. Pour catsup and diet cola over the top (I usually mix these together before I pour it over the chicken). Bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat and cook for 45 minutes. Uncover, turn up the heat and continue to cook until the sauce becomes thick and adheres to the chicken.
It turns into the most incredible BBQ sauce. Yummmmm!
**(tyedye) variation: ive made something similar to this using a beef roast and cooking it all day in the crock pot. the recipe i used added a pack of dry onion soup mix. i used mushroom/onion and its very tasty. i will try your version with chicken. sounds yummy!
**(tonya) variation: There is also another version of this for the grill or oven. You need a whole roasting chicken. Clean out the cavity and take a can of diet soda ( open the top with a can opener ) mix more herbs with the pop and set the chicken on the can. The can will fill up the whole cavity and steam from within the chicken. Bake or grill till done.
