This recipe is from Barbados and the submitter to the Canadian Women's Club of Barbados says it is absolutely delicious. It certainly is easy enough for even non-cooks to prepare.


  1. Mix together the Coca Cola & ketchup in a bowl.
  2. Place the chicken pieces in a buttered baking dish.
  3. Pour the sauce over the chicken, then sprinkle with salt & pepper.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for about an hour uncovered, until the chicken is tender and has a nice glaze.

I made half the recipe using 3 chicken breast halves, and baked for 45 minutes. Great and surprising tasty sauce, Served with Oven-Baked New Potatoes and Green Bean Almondine for a quick and delicious dinner. Thanks for posting Dan! Made for PAC Spring 2010.

Hello Dan-Amer #1 Thank you for posting this recipe. At first, I could not imagine that a mixture of ketchup and coca-cola would cook such a tender and tasty chicken. I used boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into larger pieces and found that 20 minutes was perfect for the cooking time. I removed the chicken and let the sauce thicken slightly, and WOW, was it ever tasty. I will make this recipe again, but will use some chicken thighs, chicken legs, chicken drumettes and some chicken breast. The dark meat will take a bit longer to cook, so would remove the chicken breasts at about 20 minutes cooking time. I will add some crushed red hot peppers or a small amount of Sambal Oelek and also some fresh garlic. This will give the chicken a bit of a spicy flavor. Thank you so much for this very easy and simple, delicious recipe. Regards, "Uncle Bill"
