I have various recipes for sticky chicken because on Fridays we eat finger food and for my children finger food would not be the same without Sticky chicken. Many years ago there was a big craze for cooking chicken in all kinds of liquid. Fruit juice and Coke are the ones I remember vividly.
I think I tried the Coke version once, but it was nothing to jump up and down about. When a friend told me a while ago about this crazy recipe to cook chicken in Coke, I was not impressed at all. She did tell me the secret though…….

What You’ll Need

3 -5 pounds bone in chicken with skin (folks usually use legs and/or thighs)
1 cup ketchup
1 cup honey
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup low sodium soy sauce

Fifteen minutes before cooking time is up, flip pieces once more and baste with sauce.
