"Killer" chicken???

I would like your opinions on the following:

The former Dean of our College submitted this recipe:

4 boneless chicken breasts
1 c. ketchup
1 can DIET coke

Place chicken in 10" pan
Pour cup of ketchup over chicken
Pour can of DIET coke over ketchup
Bring to a boil
Cover and simmer for 45 minutes

He also suggested you may wants to line your pan with onions and maybe toss in a couple of bay leaves. He said this is ABSOLUTLEY delicious!

Now, we have a health fanatic that had this reaction(all of this went out college wide):
"That recipe may indeed be delicious, but Diet Coke contains Aspartame(Nutrasweet)which breaks down into really nasty chemicals when it's heated, like wood alcohol, for example. That's the poisonous kind. NEVER use Aspartme in foods that are heated. Better yet, never use Aspartame."

Whatcha think?

    I have heard of cooking chicken like that with regular Coke, but not DIET Coke!

    But, isn't Nutrasweet Aspartame? People use it in coffee all of the time. ????

    Aspartame is nasty, nasty stuff. Strong correlations are being made now between the rise in incidence of neuromuscular disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Myasthenia Gravis, Fibromylagia,and Lou Gehrig's Disease with the onset of use of aspartame. Try Google-ing Aspartame and note the studies AND the chemical make-up of Aspartame. Splenda, although I've never used it, does not have nearly the cautionary tales about it as aspartame did from the very beginning. Aspartame has been banned for any use in the Medical Center I worked at since the late 80's.(other than vending machines)

    Eliminate the Ketchup and Diet Coke, and the recipe sounds pretty good...

    When I see a recipe calling for skinless, boneless chicken breast, I turn the page to something else.

    OK, so I'm a set-in-my-ways old curmudgeon.

    I actually cook this on a regular basis. It makes the chicken really tender. I shred up the chicken and use it for chicken tacos and enchiladas.

    I actually got the recipe using diet coke from a friend who is diabetic. I use regular coke and it tastes the same.......

    Just adding my 2 cents.........

    My "killer chicken" is very simple. Cover chicken breasts with peanut butter and marinate them in soy sauce in the refrigerator for one hour. Grill on the Weber and enjoy.

    "KILLER" Chicken sounds like a good description, although I am tempted to try it with regular Coke after seeing the comment from suz1998. I also like chicagostyledog's version of marinating in peanut butter and soy sauce. Think I'll try that when it gets warm enough to grill again. Sounds like a Thai based recipe and I love Thai food. I wonder how that would work with a little red chile/coconut milk marinade?

    Hawkeyejohn mentions beer can chicken. I picked up a recipe book (tall and narrow paperback, but I forget the name) which gives several variations on the basic recipe including substituting a can of coke or ginger ale for the beer. So many recipe's, so little time.

    We actually use a modified version of this recipe in our Dutch Oven cooking with Scouts. We use either Coke or Dr. Pepper (of course the non diet versions). The kids love it for it's simplicity. It's easy to prepare for, very easy to cook and even easier to clean up after. In fact universally the boys have taken to cooking this meal at home for their families by adapting it from a Dutch Oven to a Lasagna Pan and they come out looking good cooking a meal that they learned and one that everyone loves.

    It does make the meat moist and it just falls right off of the bone and the coke and ketchup combo turns into a BBQ sauce that comes out tasting great.

    Quite well. I've made up something similar before, marinated overnight, then slapped it on the grill. Just blend up all your ingredients. It seemed that the final flavor was much milder than I expected, but very tasty.

    Try adding coconut milk and chili paste to your eggs the next time you make an omelette. Saute some chicken and vegetables, wrap that up and you get a Thai melete

    Wait a minute...

    Coke, ketchup, chicken breast, isn't that an old recipe for removing rust from chrome bumpers or something?

    Whatever it's supposed to be, I'm sure you're not supposed to eat it.

    Of course, that would be a delicate and precise blend of 50/50 ketchup for our discerning tastebuds.

    Did he come up with this at KFC when he slipped on the floor and dropped his tray, but ate his food anyway?

    Coca cola can remove rust from bumpers, and it does a lot of other things...and people continue to drink it :-P
