I love cooking and I love to make something different, quick and uber tasty. I know a lot of people I talk to get turned off at the idea of coke chicken but I have to say, it’s amazing and I’ve made it so many times! I’ve also made the dish for family members who turned their noses up at the idea but soon loved it!
I think that cooking with unusual ingredients is on the rise at the moment. This diet coke chicken recipe is something different, exciting and tasty. Not only can you use coke in dinners but I’ve also made a diet coke cake recipe which also tastes superb!

If you’re new to slimming world or you’re a veteran on the journey, slimming world dinners can be a little boring after a while, so why not make a coke chicken? Why not switch it up a little bit and have fun!

Why cook with fizzy drinks?
Now I thought about cooking with fizzy drinks previously and thought it would be a crazy idea, but you know what, it seriously works, if we take the slimming world cola chicken, this turns into a BBQ style chicken, you also can try slimming world Fanta chicken, which turns more into sweet and sour, if you fancy a slow-cooked meal, then the slimming world diet coke gammon is mouthwatering and delicious.
Coke is something I’m using in more and more of my recipes and this coke chicken is a showcase of that. I’m also interested in a making a mayo chocolate cake so keep your eyes peeled for that one!
Diet Cola Chicken Cost
Like I have previously mentioned, this diet coke chicken is an absolute favourite in my house and a classic on slimming world. This is a recipe that can go a long way and can also change, you can use up some vegetables that are in the fridge, so nothing goes to waste.
This is a cheap healthy recipe, one that I know the family will absolutely love. This is loved by both meat-eaters and non-meat eaters alike. For a vegetarian option, you can do one of two things, you can use Quorn chicken style pieces, which is beautiful with that or just use vegetables, add whatever you like, just not a vegetable with a lot of water in it, butternut squash, courgettes (zucchini’s), potato or whatever you like.
If you’re cooking low budget meals you can make fantastic meals for 4 people, all you have to do is make a plan, if you don’t know where to start with food planning. Make sure you check out all my recipes for low-cost meals, all recipe costs can be found in the recipe section and you don’t have to spend a fortune for good food!
