Skillet Barbecue Chicken

When you look at the ingredients you are going to say, "How can a dish cooked with diet coke and ketchup taste good?" Well, it does, and you wouldn't believe how many recipes, both savory and sweet, can be made using diet soda. This dish really does taste like a real pulled chicken recipe. And it's so easy. All you need to do is make some brown rice (or white rice, if you prefer) and you're done. I make it on Sundays and then eat it during the week. If you're looking to add a vegetable to this dish, I have added some frozen roasted corn from Trader Joe's on occasion during the last 10 minutes of the cooking time. Hope you all enjoy!


Barbecue Chicken
Serves 4

Ingredients:
1 cup Heinz Tomato Ketchup
1 can (12 ounces) Diet Coke
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
12 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

In a small bowl, combine ketchup, diet coke, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder. Mix well. Place chicken breasts in a skillet. Pour sauce over chicken. Cover skillet and simmer over low heat for 40 minutes.

Remove chicken from skillet to a cutting board. Using 2 forks, shred chicken. Return chicken to skillet and heat over medium heat, uncovered, until sauce has reduced and thickened, about 20 minutes. Makes four 3/4 cup servings (if you're following WW, each serving of chicken is 4 pt pls).
