Grilled Coca-Cola Chicken

Grilled Coca-Cola Chicken

I got on a 7UP kick earlier this year.  I made chicken, biscuits and a pound cake!  I didn't want Coke to feel left out, so I found this recipe for Coca-Cola Chicken over on Jamie Cooks It Up and gave it a try.  It was yummy!    

The marinade was super simple to throw together.  I almost always marinate my chicken overnight.  I just find it is easier to mix it up and throw it in the fridge before I go to bed so I don't have to worry about prepping dinner in the morning.  I cut the recipe below in half since we were only cooking two chicken breasts.  I have plans for a BBQ sauce and cake with Coke in the future.

(Printable Recipe)
  • 2 cups (16 oz) Coke
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 6 chicken breasts

Combine all ingredients but the chicken in a medium sized bowl. Stir to incorporate well.  Place chicken in a large gallon sized Ziploc bag. Pour marinade over the chicken. Seal tightly and store in the fridge for 4-24 hours.  Discard marinade and grill until cooked through.

Pin It!

  1. Sounds like a wonderful recipe. I'll be sure to try this one. I have discovered (probably been there all the time) boneless, skinless chicken thighs. They are so easy to cook. Did some last night, just pounded them out flat like a breast, double battered with egg and flour and fried. Was delicious. Love your blog. Try to read it everyday. Hope you have a blessed day.

  2. I've read about this recipe before but used it on shrimps, anyway this is awesome too. If you wont mind I'd love to guide Foodista readers to your post. Just add the foodista widget to the end of this post so it will appear in the Foodista pages and it's all set, Thanks!

  3. Yum! Lovely color on the chicken.

  4. I love cooking with cold drinks too - just a little different flavor. Sure looks delish!

  5. What a handsome piece of chicken. I may have to make that for dinner!

    That marinade looked familiar, then I realized I have a similar recipe that calls for Sprite or Seven Up. It's made in the Crockpot so the chicken slow cookes in the sweet sauce. It's good, but yours looks better.

  6. Do you guys actually ever DRINK soda? ha ha

    I've done coca cola chicken before but the recipe isn't the same. I'll try yours.

  7. Hey, Steph if you liked this try the coca cola ribs. Oh, holy cow is that GOOD! If you want I can get you the recipe.

    I'm gonna pick up a can of coke and give it a try!

  8. Hmmmm ... I wonder if this would work with Dr. Pepper, too? Looks great, Steph!

  9. I make something very similar with 7 up! It's a Filipino marinade. Good to know it works with Coke too!

  10. I just put this in the crockpot. Hope it turns out good.

  11. I just put this in the crockpot hope it turns out well.
