hi finally got to try this interesting recipe today! i used little drumlets & winglets. at first i only used half can of coke 'cos i'm only using approx 500g of chicken and some of your ladies are saying that the liquid doesn't dry up...but half way cooking (i use high fire on uncovered wok), i noticed the sauce drying up real fast so i poured the remaining can of coke into the wok. well..somehow the liquid still dried up almost completely..but the chicken tasted really great! definitely a must-keep recipe..and the fact that it uses coke as a cooking ingredient makes it an interesting topic of discussion over a meal. oh, i added quite some sesame oil while cooking 'cos i like the taste/smell...think that works too.

This is my version of Cola Chicken, the easy way out grin



8 skinless chicken drumsticks & thighs
pepper
salt
1 can of coke
at least 3-4 tbl tomato ketchup
minced garlic
corn starch

Fry garlic in oil in a wok till fragrant. Add chicken pieces, salt and pepper for seasoning and stir fry for a few minutes. Pour a can of coke into the half cooked chicken and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for about 45 mins, covered. Add ketchup to the chicken after the 45 mins. Increase heat to dry the sauce a little (there should still be quite a large amount of sauce after the 45 mins). Add cornstarch to thicken the sauce.

You can also add the tomato ketchup together with the coke and simmer for abt 1 hr. My kids love this dish.

Thanks for sharing the recipe. I had a hard time to think of wat to cook for the chicken. Sick of my own cooking. So happen to see the recipe here. Give it a try and yummy it really taste good.. Hubby also say good!

But hor.. I cant get lemond coke.. so I got coke light w/o lemon and bought some lemon and suqeeze the juice out and mix it in.. the taste is equally good.

i tried this recipe tonight. Used regular coke instead of coke light. However, my chicken was really hard. In order to dry the coke, I cooked the chicken on high heat, boiling all the time. It dried out in about 15 min but the chicken meat became tough. Any idea what went wrong?

Hmm.. I think u shld not use high heat.. Regular coke will it be too sweet later on? Usually the chicken take some times to be cooked so if u use high heat, the water will dry very fast then the chicken will not be cooked and thus it may end up to be tough... tats wat I feel from my experience of cooking the chicken.

Yammies,

Not sure what happened that made the chicken tough. What I do is take out the chicken when it's tender. Continue to boil the gravy until thickened. Then, put the chicken back into the thick gravy.

Hope this helps.
