Ingredients

Serves: 4

Metric Cups
  • 500 millilitres coca-cola
  • 125 millilitres soy sauce

Method

Coca-Cola Chicken is a community recipe submitted by Community and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Place chicken pieces in frying pan. Add cola drink and soya sauce. Cook on medium heat, turning pieces often. It will look rather gross when if first starts cooking. Eventually, the liquid will evaporate, and will form a glaze on the chicken.
  • Cook until most of the liquid is gone. Be very careful to keep a close eye on the chicken, as towards the end the liquid evaporates quickly and it can burn very easily. It takes approximately 30 minutes to cook.

  • Additional Information

    It sounds very odd, but is one of my favourites. It's great served over rice and veggies. Additional spices may be added. Diet Colas will not work for this recipe. It probably won't taste good, because artificial sugars leave a weird aftertaste, and boiled aspartame probably isn't healthy.
