FabHow Tips

  • You can add a few drops of Worcestershire sauce to the Coca-Cola sauce to turn up the heat.
  • For enhanced flavor, marinate the chicken in some salt, black pepper, and freshly-squeezed lemon juice for a few hours or overnight.
  • You can also use this recipe to make Coca-Cola chicken ribs or wings by using the desired chicken pieces instead of chopped chicken breast and adjusting the cooking time accordingly.
  • In case your sauce becomes too runny, just mix in some cornstarch as it acts as a thickening agent. Just take care not to add it near the end as it will leave you with the taste of raw cornstarch in your mouth.
  • You can also toast the sesame seeds for extra flavor and crispiness before adding it to the chicken.
