As soon as spring hits, you can bet that the grill has been dusted off and ready to go. As a family, we like to be outdoors as much as we possibly can. It’s a great way to stay active, enjoy family time and to keep everyone off electronics – including myself!

The past couple of weekends have been so nice outside that it gives me plenty of time to test out new recipes including this Marinated Diet Coke® Chicken with Lemon and Limes.

I’ve teamed up with Diet Coke® to feature their new packaging for Diet Coke® 2-Liter bottles at Sam’s Club. I’m an avid Diet Coke® fan and if you see me sipping on a soda, you can bet it’s Diet Coke® in the cup.

So let’s get on to this chicken marinade with Diet Coke®. Marinating any type of meat is going to allow it to be more tender, juicy and bursting with flavor. For this marinade, I wanted to keep it simple by adding olive oil, garlic, Diet Coke®, and lemon and lime juice. I like to marinate my meats overnight or anywhere from 12-16 hours.
