How To Make Sticky Chicken With Coke
Many people are always looking for new ways to cook their chicken in order to have it taste different and also to be exciting. One unique way that you can make your chicken stickier and even more delicious is by using coke. Yes, you heard that right, coke!
For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:
- 1 cup of coke
- 1/2 cup of soy sauce
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon of ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon of black pepper
- 4 chicken thighs or breasts
Follow these simple steps to make this delicious and sticky chicken dish:
Step 1: Mix the Ingredients
In a mixing bowl, combine the coke, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, and black pepper. Mix the ingredients together until everything is well combined.
Step 2: Add the Chicken
Place your chicken in the same mixing bowl with the sauce mixture. Be sure to coat the chicken entirely so that all sides are coated.
Step 3: Marinate in the Fridge
Cover the mixing bowl and put it in the fridge. Let it marinate for at least 2 hours or even overnight. If you have more time, the longer you marinate it, the better the flavor will be.
Step 4: Preheat Your Oven
Preheat your oven to 375°F.
Step 5: Transfer Chicken to Baking Sheet
Once your chicken has been marinated enough, transfer it to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Arrange the chicken so that each piece has enough space around it.
Step 6: Bake the Chicken
Bake the chicken in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes or until it's fully cooked. The coating on the chicken should be sticky and caramelized, and the chicken itself should be juicy and tender.
Tips and Variations
This recipe is simple to modify according to your preferences. Here are some easy modifications to try:
- Instead of chicken, use pork or even beef.
- Add some spice to make it more flavorful, such as cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes or even some hot sauce.
- Use different types of soda, for instance, root beer or Dr. Pepper.
Finally, you can serve your sticky chicken with coke alongside some mashed potatoes, salad, or even rice. Whichever way you choose to serve it, be sure to give it a try and see how it transforms the flavor of your chicken!
