Pre-Slimming World, if somebody had suggested that I pour half my drink into my dinner I would have thought they were completely mental. Until I tried this Syn Free Chinese Style Pepsi Max Chicken.
Now, I spend half of my life trying to get people to put fizzy pop in their food.
The orginal recipe from Slimming World circles suggests using a can of Diet Coke in this dish. However, after being caught short with only a can Pepsi Max in the fridge, I discovered that not only does it taste better, it thickens better too.
One of the most common complaints I see on Instagram is that Diet Coke Chicken turns out too runny and refuses to thicken.
I have never had this experience with my Syn Free Chinese Style Pepsi Max Chicken. Hopefully you guys wont either!
However, this might be down to the fact that I don’t add the 200ml of chicken stock required in the original Slimming World Recipe. I still add a chicken stock cube, but let it dissolve in the Pepsi Max once in the pan.
Another great thing about this syn-free dish is that you can pack it with all of your favourite speed. Throw in whatever you want for a really nutritious and delicious dish!
What about trying this dish with king prawns or make it veggie with Quorn chicken-style pieces?
