Fanta Chicken

This recipe is loosely based on The Slimming World Diet Cola chicken recipe. It tastes a little bit like a spicy sweet-and-sour chicken. I like to serve it with boiled rice.

Serves 4

Slimming world Syn value – 0.5


black bean

3-4  chicken breasts or thighs– cut into strips

330mls of fanta zero (or another diet fizzy orange)
