Coca-cola chicken drumettes

Do you like to drink coca cola? I do but not all the time. I like to be creative so I have added coca cola to be marinade. It’s looks crispy great for the first time I tried adding coca cola.

Out there, there are plenty recipes using coca cola. Fizzy drink as marinade does seems like a good idea. I am pleased that it turned out well. Everyone seems to be licking their fingers. Let’s cook!!!!

To Marinade:


22 chicken drumettes
80-100 ml apple cider vinegar
2 Tbs red wine vinegar
1 can coca cola
6 Tbs chili powder
4 Tbs ground black pepper
2 Tbs honey
1 Tbs ground cinnamon
1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
2 Tsp sweet paprika
2 Tsp cumin
a pinch of salt
spray olive oil


Put the drumettes in to double plastic bag with the marinade. Move the drumettes around in the bag until they are well marinade for 4 -8 hrs, during the time; toss drumettes in bag to marinade.

Pre heat oven 200 degrees C. Line a baking sheet, double layer aluminium foil on tray and spray some olive oil. Then place drumettes. Bake for about an hour uncovered, until the drumettes are tender and has a nice char colour. Serve with rice and sweet and sour tau foo with vegetables or as appetiser with sweet chili sauce.

(Note recipes for sweet and sour tau foo with vegetables can be found in rice/mushroom/world menu category and sweet chili sauce can be found in Coca cola BBQ ribs under meat category).
