More About This Recipe

  • A few spices, a little Coke, some chicken and your Slow-Cooker Coca-Cola™ BBQ Chicken dinner is done!As everyone knows, the recipe for Coca-Cola™ is a closely guarded secret. Rumor has it that only a few people actually know it, and they aren’t allowed to fly together!But if you crack open a can and smell it alongside some spices, you can pick up hints. Personally, I think Coca-Cola™ smells a bit like coriander, anise, vanilla, and maybe even some savory things like cumin.These flavor profiles also happen to work really good in a BBQ sauce. By starting with a Coca-Cola™ base, you can slowly simmer chicken in your slow cooker and end up with really tender meat – and a sweet and savory BBQ sauce!The sauce will actually get more watery as it cooks because of water in the chicken. The sauce will be way to watery to serve as-is, but that’s easy to fix.When the chicken is done cooking, pour off the liquid in the slow cooker and add it to a medium saucepan. Bring that to a simmer and let it reduce until the sauce is nice and thick. It should take about 10 minutes.Then just slice up the chicken and serve the sauce over the top! I like to add a big sprinkle of fresh chopped scallions to brighten up the flavors a bit.
