This is an awesome recipe. It tastes like BBQ sauce. Ketchup is a high in sugar, but I've never had a bad reaction to it.

Diet Coke Chicken

4 servings, 4 points

Ingredients:

4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
1 green or red pepper (optional)
1/2 medium onion (optional)
1 cup ketchup
12 oz can diet cola

Saute peppers and onions and then brown chicken in non-stick skillet. Pour ketchup and diet cola over the top. Bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat and cook for 45 minutes. Uncover, turn up the heat and continue to cook until the sauce becomes thick and adheres to the chicken.

I serve plain or over rice or cous cous. It also makes good sandwiches.

These are awesome. So nice to meet you Ocho and Slightly. Thanks for making this a sticky. We are having some real luck with diet and weight loss on the mom's board...as a group we lost over 65 lbs last month. We are hoping for similar results this month. If you ever want to pop over there for support, feel free.

I also really really liked SDooley's recipe for Mexican Lasagna. In fact, it was my favorite based only on flavor, but sort of a complex process to make. If it takes more than 3 pots or pans to make it, it's complex in my world.

Mexican Lasagna

PAM Cooking Spray
2 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast(s)
2 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1 small onion(s)
14 oz canned tomatoes with green chilies
1 cup Old El Paso Medium Taco Sauce
15 oz canned black beans
8 pieces Whole Wheat Lasagna Noodles
16 slices of Weight Watcher cheese

Instructions

Cook chicken breasts; cool then fine chop or shred (I use a food processor). Mix with all other ingredients listed before noodles.

Cook noodles according to package. Pam a 13 x 9 pan; place a small amount of mixture on bottom of pan (or more taco sauce). Then lay 4 noodles across, slightly overlapping. Put 1/2 of mix on top of noodles, then 8 slices of cheese to form a layer.

Repeat with 4 more noodles, rest of mixture and last 8 slices of cheese.

Cook 30 to 45 minutes, 350 degrees, until hot in center, and cheese has melted on top.

Serve with Fat Free sour cream, jalapenos, chopped tomatoes and more salsa if desired.

Yields 8 servings
6 points per serving


(Here's my 2 cents on this one. I would chop the onions very very finely because they were still crunchy when I made it. Also I used half as much chili powder and mild taco sauce. If you like things spicy you can leave the recipe as is. Next time I make it I am going to scratch the cumin and chili powder and just use a taco seasoning packet).
