You ladies (and guys!) are in for a treat with this 3 Ingredient Recipe! Now I have to admit, I was a little skeptical at first when I heard you could cook chicken with Coca-Cola & Soy Sauce in a crockpot, but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. There is a ish ton of sugar in Coke which balances out the saltiness of the Soy Sauce!
- 1/2 Soy Sauce
- 8oz Coke (Use regular Coke because Diet Coke does not have real sugar in it)
- About a dozen Chicken Drumsticks
I poured a 1/2 cup of Soy Sauce & an 8oz bottle of Coca Cola with about a dozen chicken drumsticks in the good old trusty Crockpot and set it on low for 6 hours. This is what the mixture looks like when everything is in. (See the frothiness of the Coke? )
This is what the chicken looked like after 6 hours in the crockpot. It was practically falling off the bone, that’s how juicy and delicious it was! From here I turned off the Crockpot and drained all of the liquid from the Crockpot and put it into a sauce pan.
My goal in pouring out all of the liquid into a sauce pan was to reduce the liquid enough so that it would form a nice glaze. You’ll want to reduce it until the liquid is considerably thicker than when you removed it from the crockpot. I then dumped my chicken wings in a bowl and poured the new glaze over the wings and then served with rice & garnished with green onions. The verdict: The kids loved it!
