4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 (16 ounce) jar salsa (your choice of heat)
1 (12 ounce) can Diet Coke (DO NOT SUBSTITUTE ON THIS ITEM)
1 lime, juice of, fresh squeezed


1 In 12 inch skillet, cook chicken over medium high heat in UNSEASONED pan (do NOT spray with PAM or add any oil or butter).
2 Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper to taste.
3 Chicken will stick a bit to skillet when turning but that is ok.
4 Cook till just brown- you want a bit of color.
5 Add the entire jar of Salsa and the can of Diet Coke.
6 Reduce heat to medium low- and simmer for approximately 15-20 minutes, covered.
7 Remove lid, turn chicken and continue to simmer until sauce has thickened to desired consistency.
8 When ready to serve, squeeze juice from 1 fresh lime over the chicken.
9 I serve this over yellow rice (I just add turmeric to my rice when cooking- adds nice bright yellow color!).
10 Do not use regular Coke as this will turn out too sweet.
11 I promise--you cannot taste the Diet Coke.
