3 Ingredient Soy Sauce & Coca-Cola Chicken Drumsticks [Slow Cooker Meal]

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. 1/2 Soy Sauce
  2. 8oz Coke (Use regular Coke because Diet Coke does not have real sugar in it)
  3. 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!

  5. Court

    There was not much flavor to the sauce. I also couldn’t get the sauce to form a glaze.

      I totally agree. No flavor and sauce didn’t ever form a glaze.

    Excellent! Added some chopped up bell peppers (red, green and orange), but other than that didn’t change a thing. The sauce was a little thin, so next time I with thicken with a little cornstarch like another reviewer recommended.1 person found this helpful. Was it helpful to you?

    Suggest instead of corn starch thickened, try Arrowroot. Also some red pepper flakes for a good zap.

    It takes awhile to reduce the sauce, but it’s simple physics so it just takes time. Oh and an important note…..skim that fat off the top first before you try and reduce the liquid. Less fatty and alot easier to reduce. I like thick sauces so i added a bit of cornstarch or flour +COLD water into a sauce at the end of the reduction process. Just take off the fire briefly, add the slur quickly and stir stir stir! Frankly though the receipe is a bit bland as I found this out after the 2nd hour of cooking so I dumped more sugar, worchester sauce, a 2nd can of coke (because you need to cover over that chicken people!), salt, bay leaf and a touch of cinnamon. Would be good to marinate this for a good few hours before cooking as well (yes even if it’s being slow cooked). FYI, try not to use light soy because you want that deep color and if you’re using low sodium soy, add that salt back in! Garnish with some chopped cilantro before serving. The ken came out awesome…tangy, sweet, moist….and my 3 kids had 3 bowls of rice each. Thanks for the inspiration on this original recipe but mine was more like a 7 ingredient receipe. ;)

    The problem with the sauce is a fallacy in the Coke ingredients. Coke is no longer made with cane sugar, it’s made with high fructose corn syrup witchvfoes not reduce the same, chemically, as sugar.
