    This was delicious! I had some chicken in the freezer and was in the mood for something different. I came here to find a quick easy recipe and decided on Pepsi Chicken. Im glad I did because it was a sucess. Very good flavor! I will hang on to this recipe for sure! AMAZING! This chicken was soooo easy and had the best Bar-B-Q flavor. Little time,little effort to make and the ingredients were on hand! My husband loved it and couldnt believe that it was made with pepsi,butter and ketchup. I will be useing this recipe over and over. Thank You!

    Tried this the first time, and it turned out very well... but not without some modification. It does not take long for the chicken to cook through (I used thighs); it was done in about 30 minutes. This left a lot of watery liquid, which is not how the dish should look. I took the chicken out & moved the liquid to a frying pan to reduce the liquid to a gravy/sauce-like consistency. This took an additional 30-40 minutes. (That's a LOT of energy just to reduce the sauce!) In all, there was a little less than 1 cup of sauce. I applied the resultant sauce separately, which turned out ok.

    The diet version of this recipe calls for diet coke or diet pepsi and 1 cup of catsup. No margarine. Remove lid the last 10 minutes of cooking to allow to thicken. I Also add vegetables: onion, zuchinni, green pepper etc. Very good served over rice.
