Growing up in South Africa, this was one of my family's favorite chicken recipes. I haven't searched for it here, so I don't know if it has already been posted.

I live in the American South and we have made "Co'Cola" Chicken for a long time. This is an excellent version. We never tried the soy sauce, but it was great. It cuts the sweetness. For a sweeter version, leave the soy sauce out.

My wife is from South Africa and she puts potatoes, carrots and onions on the bottom of a roaster then puts the chicken parts, usually legs or what ever you have on hand on top, Then she adds almost a full liter of coca cola. Then sprinkles Knorr vegtable soup mix on top then covers and roasts until the meat is SOOOOOO tender. Really great!!!!
