"The proverbial statement "You know you are a Weight Watcher when..." could easily be completed with you have heard of or tried chicken simmered in a sauce made of equal parts ketchup and diet cola. While I love the dish for it's simplicity, I find it too sweet for my tastes. Inspired by Weight Watchers 4pt. Cola Chicken and the addition of onions to add a savory note, I decided to play with the classic and developed this version. Though there are a few more ingredients, it is just as easy to prepare as the original. (WW 4 points per serving and Core)"

"Loved this! The chicken was so tender. I used a reduced sugar ketchup."
"a keeper w dh and I...the kids weren't so hot on it...."
"Very good! My family enjoyed it and I love that it is good for you. Thanks for sharing! Made for Gimme 5 Tag."
"This recipe was included in Book#228608. May 26, 2008 -- This dish was much enjoyed by the family last night. I'd never heard of putting cola in a chicken recipe -- it looked interesting and I had all the ingredients on hand. I'm glad I tried this, and I made it exactly as written, except adding a little salt. The vinegar helped cut the sweetness of the cola, although that was the thing the kids liked most -- having a sauce made with cola. Thanks, Toni! This is a great recipe for kids and adults alike!"
"Normally, I'd give this recipe 4 stars. I bumped it up to 5 because it was so quick and easy to make and you just can't beat the nutrition facts - - the calories and fat content are so low! It's a diet super-star! Thank you for posting, I will be making this again and again! I served with Basmati rice and "recipe #303856" which paired very well with this chicken."
"This was absolutely gorgeous!! I'm so impressed that so few and such simple ingredients can produce something that's full of flavour and low in fat therefore being healthier.I added a bit more hot sauce to mine (I like it zingy) and I had to up the heat to get my sauce to thicken and reduce.The sauce was sweet and spicy without any one flavour being too strong,the chicken was moist and delicious.I should imagine that if you stripped the chicken and mixed it with the sauce it would be great in a sandwich.A real triumph,thank you SO much for posting.An absolute winner!! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders."
"This was a fantastic and easy meal. I am trying to cook healthier for my family, but keep the taste and this def. fit the bill. Thankds so much toni."
