Cola Chicken is not only easy to prepare dinner, it’s a delicious twist on everyday chicken! This is the perfect recipe for chicken thighs or wings!
The cola in the sauce not only adds great flavor, it also helps tenderize the chicken making this dish extra tasty. Once thickened, this sauce is awesome served over rice with a side of steamed veggies!
Items you’ll need for this recipe
* Chicken * Coca Cola * Skillet *
- 1 can 12oz cola (regular or diet)
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/2 small onion chopped
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
- pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 8 skinless bone-in chicken thighs and/or drumsticks
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook just until browned on each side (about 5 minutes).
Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over chicken and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and cover. Simmer 15 minutes.
Remove lid, and simmer an additional 30-35 minutes turning chicken occasionally until chicken is cooked through and has reached 180 degrees.
Serve with rice and steamed veggies.
Note: If you’d like a thicker sauce, once the chicken is cooked, remove from the pan and set aside. Make a slurry of 1/3 cup water and 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Bring sauce to a boil and while whisking, pour in a bit of the slurry at a time to reach desired consistency (you may not need all of it). Allow to boil 1 minute and toss with chicken.
