    I have used this recipe for years but the instructions specifically state NOT to use DIET COKE!!! Heating up Nutrasweet or other artificial sweeteners is not recommended. Except for Splenda. - 1/16/09

    This reciped was great. I was worried about heating NutraSweet, so I used Diet Rite Cola (Splenda), and it worked fine. I did add garlic and a bit of mustard powder to the sauce for a little more kick. I will surely make this again. - 1/24/09

    Tastes great! I threw everything into my slow cooker and it turned out great with zero fuss! I added about 1/2 packet of dry onion soup mix for a little extra flavor. Very yummy! - 7/17/07

    For anyone worried about the sodium count, simply use Diet Rite - it's sodium free. As for the sugar levels in ketchup, how about using Heinz Low Carb ketchup. Then add some of your own favorite seasonings. Also, why worry about the lack of's a chicken recipe. Have it with crunchy veggies - 12/8/07

    We were all pleasantly surprised by this dish at my house! Nice sweet sauce. Used Dr. Pepper, so it had an interesting little zing in the sauce. I didn't have high hopes, and my husband was very skeptical. An A+ surprise!! - 2/16/09
