My sister tried this and said it was tasty, but a bit soupy too. Did anyone else make this and have it turn out thicker?

I got this recipe years ago when doing Weight Watchers. I have made a few tweaks to the recipe and doctored the sauce up a bit over the years. I also bake it in the oven. Before low carbing I would add 2 tablespoons cornstarch to the sauce before cooking, now I would use a suitable low carb substitute.

Here is my version of Cola Chicken...

ERIN’S COLA CHICKEN

1 cup low carb ketchup
1 cup diet coke
1 tablespoon dehydrated minced onion
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons cornstarch (substitute a low carb equivalent)

4 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts (1 pound)

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix first 6 ingredients together to make a sauce.
Place chicken breasts in a baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam.
Pour sauce over chicken.
Bake for 30 -35 minutes.
Serve.

This is another good chicken recipe that was originally from Weight Watchers. It also lent itself well to a low carb conversion.

Erin---


TEMPLE CHICKEN

1/2 cup Smucker's Sugar-free Apricot Preserves

1/2 cup Carb Options Sweet & Spicy French Salad Dressing

1/2 packet Lipton Onion Soup Mix

1-2 tablespoons cornstarch (use a low carb equivalent)

1 pound boneless, skinless, chicken breasts (4)

Mix the preserves, dressing, soup mix and thickener together to make a sauce.
Lay chicken out in a single layer in a glass baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam.
Pour sauce over chicken.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
Serve.

I use Expert Foods ThickenThin not/Starch thickener as a substitute for cornstarch. I order it from netrition. You could also use guar or xanthan although I am not certain as to the amounts because I haven't tried them myself.

If you let it cook for awhile, it will cook down and thicken up a little. If I'm in a hurry, I take the chicken out and add a little xanthan gum and mix with a hand blender.

My sister and I made this tonight and it was excellent! We made the sauce on top of the stove and cooked the chicken in the oven. When the chicken was about halfway done, we basted it with the sauce. We did wind up adding the extra ingredients posted in eko42's recipe (worstershire sauce, onion flakes and mustard). This made a big difference in the taste. We will definately make this again!

I'm glad I saw this recipe today. I've got it reducing on the stove now! YUM...it's tasty!
I was unable to find the low carb heinz...but found some carb options ketchup. It tastes good. This is the first time I've tasted ketchup in a year!

I made this Sunday for lunch. I had my doubts, but it turned out really well.

I browned the chicken in olive oil and then skimmed off the fat. Then added the ketchup and diet Riet cola. Simmered until the sauce was thick and rich. Delicious!

Thanks, Cheri, for posting this!

Just made this using the individually frozen breasts, and didn't even have to thaw them.

What can I say, came out as advertised...awesome!!!

I added the mustard and worcester sauce from Erin's post and I think it really helped. Don't know if it would have been the same coming from a bottle but I don't think so. The chicken was SO tender and juicy and the sauce was just SO yummy!

This one just became a new staple at my house I think ;-) If anyone has similar recipes that are equally easy/simple, please post! I love the individual breasts best when I don't have to thaw/prepare them :-)

Try Bruce's Adobe:

3 pounds Chicken thighs
1/2 cup soy sauce, Kikkoman
2/3 cup white vinegar
1 Bay leaf
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1 onion, sliced

Combine all ingredients in non-aluminum pan. Bring to boil. Cover, lower heat and simmer until tender.


Servings 8: Per Serving: 303 Calories; 21g Fat (61.7% calories from fat); 24g Protein; 4g Carbohydrate; trace Dietary Fiber.

You can use chicken, pork or beef or any combination of the three. It's also a good crockpot recipe.


__________________

It was also delicious! I added chunky sf peanut butter, crushed red chilis and raw green onion (cilantro would also be good) and cut the meat in small pieces and made lettuce wraps with it. It was delicious! My dh and kids ate it without any embellishments and LOVED it.

So, from what I can see reviewing the reviews on this thread, the crock pot results are too soupy? Anyone else back to post their crock pot results on this recipe? Thanks in advance.

I made this recipe in a crock pot with boneless ribs (and onions) and it was sooo good! It did not turn out like bbq sauce -- much soupier, but had an awesone taste. I'll absolutely do it again.

I've also had it on chicken as a bbq sauce, and it is excellent this way, too.

How funny. My mother has been making coke and ketsup chicken my entire life. SHe got the recipe from Johnny Cash's sister in the 50s or 60s. When I started Atkins about 3 years ago, I started making this with diet dr pepper (makes it a bit more spicy) and sugar free ketsup. Yum, just as good now as it was fully sugared.

There are a couple of things I do:
1. I only use cut up chicken (bone in with the skin) as opposed to boneless skinless chicken.

2. After mine comes to a boil, I cook it on a low simmer for about 45 mins to an hour. You really want the sauce to get thick and come together.

3. Never cover it. You want the sauce to reduce and thicken.

I made this with boneless pork chops yesterday. It's as good as the chicken. I just browned the pork chops and added the cola and catsup.

I'm usually too impatient to wait for the sauce to thicken too much.

OK, so here's a new take on this....DH loves "beer can chicken" so I used 1/2 can of cola and 1/2 LC ketchup and cooked it down until it thickened. The other half of cola was left in the can and I added the other half of the ketchup to the can along with some garlic and hot pepper flakes. Seasoned the chicken inside and out with S&P, put it over the can and threw it on the grill on indirect heat for 1 hour. Basted it every 15 mins with the cooked down sauce.......YUM

I tried this last night - very good and so easy!

I am going to try this with whole chicken breasts, chicken wings and also pork - especially country ribs. Also, bbq meatballs!

I used LC catsup and diet Coke and since I think LC catsup is a little too sweet anyway, it was just right. I used 1 cup DC to 1 cup catsup for 6 chicken breats. The LC catsup was mostly the Atkins brand but since I ran out I added some CarbOptions brand to make 1 cup. I also added some dried onion flakes (ala Erin) but also added a chopped fresh onion. I added no thickening agent but the sauce was plenty thick enough.

Next time, I may trying a couple drops of liquid smoke to bring in some hickory flavor.

I made this in the crock pot for the family. I had 1 can of DR left. I used babyback pork ribs, a little onion, liquid smoke,& some spices
put it on low for 8 hours ( in an old crockpot).

It was very soupy like everbody said so the last 2 hour I put on high and took the lid off. And it thicken up on its own. I tasted the sauce just a little and it was delish.

I/m allergic to splenda so my taste tester, hubby loved it.

This is very good. I tried it over the weekend.
I used a mix of Cheri and eko42's receipes.
I cooked the chicken till almost done, added everything for the sauce, brought it up to a boil and then let it simmer for about 30mins.

Excellent

I took some for lunch today and let a co-worker sample. She really liked it "Oh I could go overboard on that one". She asked for a copy of the receipe.

Thanks everyone.

I'll have to try a few drops of liquid smoke next time I make this, sounds like a good addition to the sauce. I love to hear of the different tweaks people make to a recipe, such good ideas.
