Now to some of you this might sound horrible but believe me it is delicious, Its another super quick dinner especially if you use leftover cooked chicken (or cheat like I did with frozen cooked chicken strips). The vegetables give it colour and freshness . Once the sauce has reduced it makes a lovely sticky syrupy BBQ tasting sauce but you have to persevere and simmer it right down it doesn’t make a lot of sauce but it coats everything so its tasty. I served it with egg noodles but you can serve with rice if you prefer.
2 large chicken breasts cut into strips (or a bag of cooked chicken or about 8-10oz cooked chicken)
2 peppers (red, green yellow whatever colour you like) bell peppers for my US friends
6oz mushrooms (sliced)
1 large onion (sliced )
1 can diet coke
4 tbsp passata (sieved tomatoes )
dash of worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
spray oil

Place a wok or large deep frying pan over a high heat and spray with oil, Add the onions and peppers and stir fry for a few minutes until the vegetables are soft. Add the mushrooms and stir fry for another couple of minutes. Add the chicken (if using raw then make sure its stir fried until cooked through)if using frozen or leftover just stir fry for a few minutes.
Pour over the can of diet coke, the passata and add the dash of worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce is reduced, thick and syrupy , You really need to have patience because just as you think its not going to happen it will : )
