HEB was giving free a 1 liter bottle of Manzanita Apple Soda with 2# or more of butt pork. I had to figure out a way to use, since I knew we would not drink it. This is what I came up with; it tastes pretty good.

How to Make APPLE OF MY EYE CHICKEN (SALLYE)

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350º

    Line a sided baking sheet with parchment paper

    Place cooking rack on baking sheet over parchment paper

    Set aside
  2. PREPARE BASTING SAUCE:

    Place apple soda, soy sauce, honey, lemon, 1 tablespoon olive oil, chili sauce and spices together. Whisk until it is well blended and forms a smooth sauce.

    Set aside
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in cast iron or heavy skillet over medium high heat.

    Place chicken in skillet and cook 3 minutes per side until slightly brown.

    Remove from heat
  4. With basting mop or brush generously rub chicken with basting sauce and place each piece on cooking rack on baking sheet

    Place small oven safe bowl of water under cooking rack to keep smoke down

    Place baking sheet in preheated oven and cook for 30 minutes, basting often.

    Turn chicken over after 15 minutes

    Check internal temp of chicken with thermometer, it it is not at 165º at the thickest part, cook for 5 minute increments until that temp is reached.

    If you don't have a meat thermometer, pierce with fork at thickest part. If juices run clear, it is done.
  5. Good served with rice or noodle dishes with a crisp green vegetable such as broccoli, and maybe some candied carrots. See suggested recipes in comment below.
