I used to make diet coke chicken quite often when I was doing the Weight Watchers diet a few years back. The original recipe requires ketchup, but to make it as low syn as possible. I substituted the ketchup for passata. I think it worked quite well.
Diet Coke Chicken
Slimming Eats Recipe
Extra Easy – syn free per serving
Original – syn free per serving
6 Chicken Drumsticks (skin and visible fat removed)
1 can of diet coke
5 tablespoons of passata
splash of Worcestershire sauce
Salt to season
Frylight or Pam spray
Preheat oven to 200c of 400f
Place the chicken drumsticks in a oven proof dish, sprinkle with some salt and sprayu with some Frylight or Pam spray
Pour the can of diet coke in a frying pan and put on a high heat.
Add the passata and Worcestershire sauce
Keep on high heat and continuously stir.
As the coke begins to reduce it will start to go sticky. This is what makes a great barbecue marinade.
Once it is to it’s sticky form. Remove chicken drumsticks from the oven and pour sauce over the chicken and place then back in the oven until chicken is cooked.
Take out a few times through the cooking process and with a spoon baste the chicken drumsticks with the sauce.
A lovely barbecue chicken recipe with NO SYNS. You can use this sauce on ribs, beef, pork whatever takes your fancy.
The diet coke can be substituted for a non diet brand, but will then add syns to the recipe.
