Hey yall!!!  I don’t know about you but I love to snack, especially on the weekends in front of a good movie.  Some times when the credits roll I look down at the remains of my snacking and I don’t feel too good.  I wanted to make some delicious snacks without the guilt so my movie snacking would have a happy ending as well.  Enter 7UP TEN.  It has all the amazing flavor of 7UP without the guilt.

I decided it would be perfect for crafting some amazing movie snacks.  So while I was at Kroger doing a little grocery shopping I made sure to pick up some for the weekend movie fest we had planned.

Now normally we love to munch on chips dunked in a jarred cheese sauce or a cream cheese based dip.  I wanted to lighten up our usual nacho snack by making these Citrus Grilled Chicken Nachos.   I love marinating meat in soda, it provides such a great flavor and really tenderizes the meat.

 The lemon lime flavor of the 7UP TEN paired perfectly with a little taco seasoning and garlic to make some killer tender grilled chicken for my nachos.  I switched out my chips for some baked ones, my cheese sauce for a little sharp cheddar, a veggie heavy salsa and a drizzle of lite sour cream rounded out this tasty movie staple.  This chicken is also great for salads, tacos, burritos or even by itself!

Now if I am craving a little sweet snack I make a super simple 7UP TEN float.  I just fill a frosty mason jar up with the 7UP TEN and then add a large scoop of fat free lime sherbet.  It is refreshing and tastes amazing!  It also is a fabulous way to have a little ice cream treat without worrying about all the calories!

    Looks amazing. I love marinating meat in soda too – it gives it a lot of flavor and keeps it tender too. Thanks for linking up to Show Me Saturday. Hope to see you there again this week!
