Slow Cooker Coke Chicken ~#1 On My List Of “Things I like to toss in the crock pot.”
I’m getting ready for Apple Week this weekend, preparing some last minute apple recipe tutorials and getting posts written up and queued for this and my other blog for al.com, so we’re having a bit of a slow weekend. I wanted to post my mother’s tutorial on Buttermilk Cornbread, but she isn’t home right now and I’m missing a few photographs I need.
So, in honor of our Slow Cooker Giveaway (Congrats again, Beverly!), I am going to post this recipe. I hesitate to call this a recipe as it really is so very easy that there doesn’t seem to be any real cooking involved. The outcome though, is wonderful.
This works with pork chops, boneless breasts, ribs, and even roast. I ask that you first try it with a fryer if at all possible, though. There is a magic that takes place when you cook a fryer like this that just doesn’t happen with other cuts of meat, even boneless skinless breasts. The fryer, after slow cooking all day in this amazing blend of flavors, becomes completely permeated with the flavor and literally falls off of the bone. Every shred of chicken, even the inside meat, is tinted the color of your sauce, proving that it has completely saturated the bird.
The flavor is so amazing! I like to serve this with stewed potatoes in butter sauce and a simple dinner roll. The chicken steals the show.
*Yes, you can make this with another carbonated beverage, it just needs to be carbonated and have sugar in it.
Honestly, I’m embarrassed to post this because it is so simple. You’ll need: A whole fryer, Coca Cola, BBQ Sauce, An Onion, And A Lemon. I Like Capitalizing Today!
Peel your onion and cut onion and lemon into quarters. That’s all, just make yourself four wedges and you’re done!
Put chicken little in the crock pot. Raise your hand if you’re happy they finally quit putting the neck and all that mess up inside the bird? ~Raises hand and WAVES it energetically~
Toss that lemon and onion onto Chicken Little.
Pour whole bottle of BBQ Sauce over it.
Pour whole can of Coke over it.
Put the lid on and cook on low all day long or high for 3 to 4 hours. This is great to put on in the morning before you go to work. Your house will smell phenomenal when you come home.
For the record, I spelled phenomenal correctly the first time with no help from spell check! Go me!
Chicken Little! All cooked up and ready for your plates!
