Gluten Free Diet Cola Chicken
"Like Sweet and Sour chicken without the calories"Serves 4 | Prep Time 15 minutes | Cook Time 45 minutes
Why I Love This Recipe
This is based on a slimming world recipe, so is super healthy as well as delicious. It has quickly become a favourite recipe.
It needs a bit of adaptation to become gluten free as soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and some cola's contain gluten. However you can buy all of these items in the free from section of larger supermarkets. At the time of writing, Diet Pepsi, Pepsi Max and Diet Cola-Cola were gluten free, however you need to check the labels to be safe as ingredients change and may differ in other countries.
In my opinion it is worth the effort to adapt to gluten free
