I didn’t know that my sister was now a cook. She has introduced me to the world of New-American Eats. Here we have Jill showing off her Coca-Cola Pulled Chicken Sandwich. She chopped up onions and put them in a slow cooker with a whole chicken and then dumped a can of coca-cola that was mixed in a bottle of ketchup and let it slow cook in a crock pot for 3 hours. After it was done, she pulled the bones out of the chicken and shredded it with a fork and plopped it on some bread.
It was tender and a tad sweet. The coke flavor was minimal, but I did get a whiff. I would have to say it was pretty darn good after adding a few veggies (see my take on the sandwich below with a bit of cucumber, sliced radish, and served on wheat bread).
My sister did a good job with it- I think I’ll have it for breakfast tomorrow.
Here’s the recipe:
1 chicken, cut up
1 1/2 lg. onions, sliced
10 to 12 oz. Coca Cola
10 to 12 oz. catsup
Lay chicken in baking dish. Mix Coca Cola and catsup. Pour over chicken. Cook in a crock pot first on high and then reduce to medium and cook for 3-6 hours. Pull the chicken out and shred it with a fork and pull out the bones. If the chicken gets dry, add some more ketchup or bbq sauce.
