Chat Host Michelle’s Diet Cola Chicken
Friday again folks and you know what that means? It’s time for our latest 60 Recipes for 60 Years.
This weeks recipe comes to us from Chat Host Michelle who is based in our Sheffield office and can be found chatting away and helping you guys out in our bingo chat rooms.
This particular recipe is one of Michelle’s favourites and is a Slimming World cult classic that has become one of their most popular.
Cooking in zero sugar cola gives the dish a wonderfully mild sweet taste whilst the addition of veggies makes it almost sin free. It’s quick and easy and great for any evening meal.
