4 medium, uncooked, skinless chicken breast
1 can of Diet Coke (or any other diet cola product)
1 cup of ketchup
(If you only want to cook 2 chicken breasts, just use a half can of Diet Coke and a half cup of ketchup)
Pour the can of Diet Coke into a medium skillet. Mix in 1 cup of ketchup until ketchup is somewhat separated. Place the 4 chicken breasts in the skillet. Preferably they will be mostly covered by the Diet Coke and ketchup mixture. Cover and simmer on medium heat. Once the sauce starts to thicken, you may want to stir occasionally. Cook for approximately 45 minutes. You will know when it is done, as ketchup and Diet Coke will turn into a thick marinara-like sauce.
This recipe creates extremely tender and juicy chicken breasts along with a sweet marinara-like sauce. You definitely do not taste the Diet Coke nor the ketchup, they come together to form a delicious sauce that nobody will ever guess the ingredients you started out with.
