"I was playing around with different marinades and this seemed to go over well. This recipe can be baked in the oven if you don't want to brave the winter chill at the grill."

  1. In a Dutch oven, large enough to hold your chicken, combine the barbeque sauce, 1 liter of cola and grape jelly. Add the chicken and pour in more cola if needed to cover it. Bring to a boil, then simmer over medium-low heat for 1 hour, adding more cola as needed to keep the chicken covered.
  2. Preheat a grill for medium heat. Remove the chicken from the sauce, and place on the grill.
  3. Cook, turning frequently for about 20 minutes, just until the skin is crispy. Heat the leftover sauce over high heat and boil for about 10 minutes to serve alongside the chicken.

I had high hopes when I tried this recipe for something different. It was truly different alright. I followed the recipe exactly....

Sweet and sticky and flavorful. I also tried it by substituting honey for the grape jelly and loved it. Colas are a great BBQ sauce ingredient. I recommend Dr. Pepper too.

Ok... this is not 5 star dining, but it is absolutely 5 star taste. The chicken comes out so tender and flavorful- it even looks delicious (grilling is the only way to go). Guests marvel, my fam...

Loved this recipe. Very easy and the whole family enjoyed dinner.

Great recipe! We ALL love it
