coca-cola chicken

IMG_8044Its holiday season and we all have that friend and family members who just can’t live with out coca-cola. What do we do with the bottles that they don’t finish? I don’t know about you but I cook it. Yep, I use coca-cola in my cooking. And it taste awesome! Something you just never thought of to try.

Today I made coca-cola chicken! Easy and simple!

Ingredients:

1 can or bottle of coca-cola (whatever you have)

soy sauce

chicken (I used chicken thigh.)

Directions: 

  1. in a pot, pour a bottle or can of coca-cola that you have
  2. when its boiled drop in about 1-1 1/2 lb of chicken thigh.
  3. Pour about 1/2 cup of soy sauce
  4. Boil for about an hr or longer at low heat. The longer you cook it, the tender it is If you make chicken wings or chicken thigh, the chicken will be very easy to pull off from the bone.
    Note: Make sure the liquid covers the chicken in the pot.

Because coca-cola contains high amount of sugar and among other secrete ingredients like herbs, it makes the chicken taste sweet and flavored. The soy sauce will also help balance the sugar in the coca-cola.

I like to serve my cocoa -cola chicken with rice :p
