Right, I made this stange sounding recipe for the first time about a week ago and so have decided to share it with all your sw ladies out there!
This recipe was derived from the Diet Coke Chicken Recipe that I was told about in one of my sw group sessions. Being a big fan of sweet and sour chicken I wanted to adapt the recipe using only a few different ingrediants and of course Orange Fanta. So here goes...
Time: 30 - 40 minutes (incl. prep)
Diced Chicken Breast (enough to feed two people)
Can of chopped tomatos
3 Sliced Bell Peppers (I used red, green and yellow to add lots of colour)
1 Tsp Soy Sauce
Can of Fanta Zero (Orange) *Remember to use Zero to keep it syn free!*
First, spray a large sized pan with fry light and set to a medium to high heat.
Add the chicken to the pan until chicken is just cooked (make sure not to over do the chicken at this stage).
Add a little more fry light to the pan if needed and add the diced onions and sliced peppers. Keep these in the pan until the peppers have softened and the onions have browned slightly.
Then add the pineapple chucks, chopped tomatos and soy sauce into the mix. Make sure to heat this mixture up slightly before adding the last ingrediant, Orange Fanta Zero.
At this point the mixture will look like a gloopy mess but rest assured it will thicken!!
Turn the heat down to a low simmer and leave (covered) for about 20 minutes. Keep checking it as when it does eventually thicken it happens fast!
As soon as the liquid thickens turn off the heat and serve immediately with a side of boiled white rice.
This dish is super simple, cheaply made and tastes delicious! It has a hint of sweet and sour about it and is very filling. Whats more it is completely syn free so if, like me, you like your meals big, then you can have however much of it you like!!
