Coca-Cola BBQ Chicken Casserole Recipe Ingredients:
3 pounds chicken breasts
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup onion, finely diced
1/2 cup green bell pepper, finely diced
1 cup ketchup
1 cup Coca-Cola, room temperature
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon salt
1/2 tsp hickory smoked salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/8 tsp black pepper
How to Make Coca-Cola BBQ Chicken Casserole:
Rinse chicken breasts; pat dry.
Combine flour and salt.
Coat chicken with flour and salt mixture. I find it easiest to add to a quart-sized Ziploc bag and put the chicken in one piece at a time, seal, and shake. Then repeat.
Brown pieces on all sides in hot oil, then place pieces in a 3-quart casserole.
Combine remaining ingredients, mixing well.
Spoon sauce over chicken, covering all pieces.
Cover the casserole, and bake at 350 degrees F for about 1-1/4 hours, or until chicken is fork tender and at a temperature of at least 165 degrees.
Do I have to Use Coca Cola?
If you prefer to use Diet Coke, it works. Any cola soda will work–though it will alter the flavor slightly.
IN THE FRIDGE: Refrigerate the barbecue chicken for up to 4 days stored in an airtight container.
IN THE FREEZER: Freeze this slow cooker cola chicken for up to three months in an airtight container or plastic freezer bag.
