When I first discovered the recipe for Diet Coke Chicken I imagined it to be a really sweet and sticky dish and couldn’t get my head around putting a diet fizzy drink in a food recipe. But, I gave it a go and it really does works. It’s such a delicious dish, it’s a firm favourite in our house and both Little Mr and hubby both enjoy it too.
