So delicious! We diced the chicken really small and let it marinade for 4-5 hours. It was very tender. We served it on hoagie rolls with melted cheddar cheese on top. So very good!

My BF raved about this barbecue cola chicken. I used it on a sandwich which I added a nice serving of Wholly Guacamole to (Wholly Guacamole). I also added a slice of bacon and onion to the sandwich too. Delicious. My BF especially noticed the delicious barbecue sauce. I will definitely be using this recipe again.

Yummy! I made these on my indoor grill and they turned out great. The sauce was wonderful. It smelled divine! I only used 5 chicken breasts, a half a bottle of barbeque sauce, a sprinkle on onion and a half can of cola and it was delicious and very tender.
