CHICKEN COLA BAKE
Penny-Pinching Main Dishes p.123
You might think I let the kids take over the kitchen when I was creating this slightly strange but savory sauced chicken dish! I promise you, it sounds odd but the blend of diet cola, cream soup, and spices is simply marvelous! In fact, most people you serve it to will never believe there's cola in the gravy.... Serves 4
16 ounces skinned and boned uncooked chicken breasts, cut into 4 pieces
1 (12-ounce) can Diet Pepsi or Coke
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom Soup
2 tablespoons dried onion flakes
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken pieces in an 8-by-8-inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine Diet cola, mushroom soup, onion flakes, and parsley flakes using a wire whisk. Pour soup mixture over chicken pieces. Cover and bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until chicken is tender. HINT: This "gravy" (the soup mixture without the chicken) is also delicious over rice or mashed potatoes.
