Spray a wide non-stick frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Add the chicken, peppers and onion and stir-fry for 5 minutes or until lightly browned.
Add the diet cola, stock, passata, tomato purée, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and dried mixed herbs and stir well. Bring to the boil, cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 12-15 minutes.
Stir in the sugar snap peas and turn the heat to medium-high. Cook for another 10-15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the veg is tender.
Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in a saucepan of boiling water over a high heat for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain the potatoes well, return them to the pan with the fromage frais, season well and mash until smooth and serve hot.

Top tips for making Slimming World’s diet cola chicken
If you're a vegetarian swap the Slimming World chicken for Quorn or tofu pieces instead - just cook for less time according to packet instructions.
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Reheat thoroughly before serving again and make sure the chicken is piping hot.
Serve with mashed potatoes, rice, or Slimming World chips for a homely weekday evening dinner. If you want an even healthier option serve with freshly made salad.
