Introduction: Coca-Cola Chicken

A simple chicken recipe flavored with Coca-Cola.

Step 1: Gather Ingredients and Utensils

Ingredients
- chicken
- 2 liters of Coca-Cola
- soy sauce (preferably light)
- salt
- water

Do not use Diet Coke as it does not contain sugar.

Utensils
- pot or pan to simmer chicken with
- stirring utensil

Step 2: Cooking

1. Boil the chicken in water until it is fully cooked.

2. Dump the water and replace it with Coca-Cola.

3. - Begin simmering the chicken in Coca-Cola for about 30 minutes or until flavor fully sets in. Cover the pot to keep the flavor in.
-Add about 1 tablespoon of salt for every liter of Coca-Cola to balance the sweet and salty flavors a bit.
- Add about 3 tablespoons of soy sauce for every liter of Coca-Cola if light soy sauce is used. Otherwise you may want to leave it at 2 tablespoons or it will be too salty. Adjust flavorings to personal taste and remember to stir occasionally.

4. After 30 minutes, the remaining Coca-Cola should have a thick, syrupy consistency.

Step 3: Enjoy

Consume the chicken.

my husbands sister use to make it ketchup and coke. I've never made this before but I'll try anything once. Can you put it in a crock pot?

Don't see why it wouldn't work. Although it might be harder to get the liquid down to a sauce like thickness.

Wonder if it matters whether the Coca-Cola is caffeinated or caffeine-free.

author
tpeters8 made it!(author)2016-04-06

doubtful, unless your one of those types that can tell the difference (i cant even tell the difference and ive been hooked on it for something like 13 years lol) in my experience caffeine is bitter on its own so you might end up with a slightly sweeter version if you use caffeine free, but dont take my word on it.

Probably not good to concentrate such a large quantity of artificial sweetener. Best to stick with the natural stuff.

I followed this recipe exactly until the sauce and the chicken simmered in the pan for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes the sauce wasn't close to being a clear and sticky sauce as pictured. I removed the chicken and continued the sauce with the exception of adding about 1/3 cup of an orange marmalade mixed with a fig and muscot variety. I reduced the sauce until clear, thick and sticky, about two hours later as someone posted earlier. I turned off the sauce and mixed the chicken pieces back in and re-warmed it in the oven the next evening. Yum! Sorry no pictures and I can't click, I Made it! without providing a photo. We devoured it but it looked very much like the original post. Confession: I used a real cola product made with sparkling water, cane sugar and cola nuts (CalebsKola.com)

you should post this with instructions as its own recipe, it sounds amazing, but you changed virtually everything except the chicken

It is quite simmilar to a quasi traditional chinese recipe. It is not really traditional, but it is quite common in china and they also serve it in restaurants. Small differences (as far as i remember them): chicken is not boiled but fried. Add spring onions at end of frying time. Also add ginger. Then the coke and soy sauce and no extra salt rather more soy sauce. The rest as described here.

Doesn't the recipe work, because the sugar in the coke is caramelized when it is cooked? Doesn't diet/sugar free soda defeat the purpose of the whole thing?

hi!! we use a sachet of french onion soup mix at the beginning with just a bit of coke, and add coke a little at a time as its cooking so it evaporates faster and gets thicker. and we do ours on the stovetop, and it goes nice with potato bake. yum.

My mother always made chicken coke for me as a child. I now make it for kids and they absolutely love it. The only thing different that we do is that instead of boiling the chicken in water, we boil the chicken in equal parts coke and bar-b-que sauce. It will be thin at first. You know it's done when the sauce thickens up. Usually takes about 2 hours.

One thing I've seen done before is salmon marinating in a mix of dill sauce and sprite for a day. It's actually pretty good!

we have used a similar recipe but using catsup and coke sort of a mild bbq flavor. Easy and a family favorite. Try it as a sauce for cocktail meatballs, very good.

This is so cool...any way to just add the raw chicken and coke to a slow-cooker, let go for 6 - 8 hours and get the same results?

author
crestind made it!(author)2008-12-04

Yeah probably. Basically you just stew it and wait for all the water to evaporate.

so it's kind of a fizzy terriaki chicken. Is it really that delicious?

author
crestind made it!(author)2008-06-13

The final consistency of the Coke is like a sauce, so it isn't really fizzy lol But yeah, it's pretty good

I have seen a similar recipe with ketchup instead of soy sauce. Basically you mix coke and ketchup and use it in lieu of bbq sauce.

So you don't need to marinate? Would it be better to marinate the chicken in the Coca Cola concoction overnight and then cook it on a grill?

author
crestind made it!(author)2007-11-14

You do need to marinate for the flavor to set in. Also most of the Coke has to evaporate to you have some thick sauce. I haven't grilled it before, so you could try that!

I live in NY City and we have a very large Asian population here. If I go to an Asian market there are about 50 brands of soy sauce. The NY Daily News did a taste test to see which was the best and #2 was Kikkoman (which I had been using) and #1 was Tamari brand. It is naturally brewed, contains a little alcohol and beets Kikkoman , IMHO. When you buy Soy Sauce look at the ingredients; if it says caramel coloring pass it by- its just salty water.

I don't see the need to scare people of the 0.13g of aspartame per can of diet coke that's diluted further in chicken. The UK specifies 22 cans of diet coke's worth of aspartame a day as the recommended upper limit of aspartame intake in an adult. If it's a comparable substitute in terms of taste, I would prefer that over the 39g of corn syrup (that's 300 times the mass of aspartame in diet) per can. Even if it's not sweet enough, I would imagine that adding granular or brown sugar with diet coke would give it a more subtle sweetness and depth of flavor. That aside, it sounds like an interesting recipe. I'll have to try it.
