Cherry Coke Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Mooseybear

No, I'm not kidding, and I'm neither on crack nor cracking up. This is darn tasty chicken, easy enough for a weeknight and pretty enough for company. Just be sure you throw away the tell-tale Coke can so they won't know about your secret ingredient.

A delicious way to prepare chicken breasts. The sauce thickens as it simmers, making a wonderful glaze. I used the chicken broth and coke combination. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.
