How To Make coke chicken

  • 1
    Put a little oil (olive) in a fry pan and brown chicken (I used drum drumsticks) they dont dry out brown for a few minutes on all sides
  • 2
    Pour in coke and simmer on medium heat for about 40 mins turning occasionally the sauce should reduce down to about a quarter of the original if not remove chicken and boil until reduced
  • 3
    add soy and maple and thicken a bit more with the corn flour return the chicken to pan and coat in sauce
  • 4
    I serve this with home made fried rice or just plain old boiled rice or a really nice salad This makes a great finger food for parties (just use chicken wings instead they wont take as long to cook)
