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.
adapted from Jamie Cooks It Up!
2 C (16 oz) Coke
1/3 C soy sauce
1 T minced garlic
1/2 C brown sugar
1 T balsamic vinegar
1 T 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.
