Many years ago there was a big craze of cooking chicken in all kinds of sweet liquids. Here’s an interesting one using cola, from Cookbook of the weeks author, Nina Timm’s (see her website, www.my-easy-cooking.com). A very simple recipe, with only three ingredients.
8 pieces of chicken – thighs and drumsticks
2 tins of cola
1/2 cup soy sauce
- Place the chicken pieces in a heavy based pot. Pour the cola and soy over the top, cover with a lid and cook for 30-40 minutes.
- Remove the lid and lower the heat. Cook the chicken slowly, turning the pieces every now and then. The sauce will reduce down to a stick consistency. Serve with Mashed potatoes and some greens.
- The soy provides enough salt to this dish.
