How do I make this Syn Free Diet Coke – Pepsi Max Chicken?
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post.
Spray a frying pan with Frylight and heat gently. We used Avocado Frylight as in our opinion it’s the best one.
Add the chicken, sprinkle with the 5 Spice and season. Stir and cook until the chicken has started to brown.
Remove the chicken from the pan, add a few more sprays of Frylight then fry off the onions, ginger, garlic and mushrooms.
Cook until they start to soften.
Add peppers, baby corn, tomato puree, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar and Coke/Pepsi. Stir and bring to the boil.
Stir in the half a stock cube and the stock pot and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
When the sauce has started to thicken and go a bit syrupy, return the chicken to the pan and stir in the spring onions.
Simmer for another 10 minutes. Check the consistency and if it’s not quite thick enough simmer for a bit longer, until the required consistency is reached.
Can I freeze this Syn Free Diet Coke – Pepsi Max Chicken?
Yes you can! Just make sure you freeze it as soon as it’s cooled, and it’s piping hot all the way through after reheating.
