Soda Pop Marinade for Chicken

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Debs Recipes

Does anyone remember the grade school science experiment done by dangling a tooth into cola? Back then the cola broke down the tooth. In this marinade the soft drink and soy sauce work together as tenderizers in much the same way. The end result is very tender and flavorful chicken!

Super good!! I used black cherry soda, marinated it for about 4 hours and grilled it on my indoor grill. It was terrific! The soda and horseradish blended together wonderfully.
