  • 10-12 chicken pieces wings or drumsticks, skin-on or off (see note)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 8 oz cola 1 cup
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Serving - optional

  • green onions minced
  • rice or mashed potatoes


  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add oil.
  • Add the chicken pieces, making sure not to crowd the pan.
  • Fry 5 minutes, turning every minute or two for even browning.
  • Add soy sauce and cola to the pan and bring to a boil.
  • Cover with a lid, reduce heat to medium and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • The sauce should be thickening, but if not remove the lid and boil for 1-3 minutes more.
  • Remove to a plate and drizzle sauce on top.
  • Garnish with green onion. Serve and enjoy!



  • I recommend using chicken wings or chicken drumsticks for this recipe. For larger servings, you can also use chicken thighs or legs but cooking time will be longer. For chicken breasts, cook to an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) measured with an instant-read thermometer.
