3 1/2 pounds
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into chunks
salt and pepper to taste
fresh mushrooms, coarsely chopped
chopped green onion
cola-flavored carbonated beverage
fresh parsley, chopped
chopped fresh rosemary
I've made something very similar but with jalopena peppers added to the cola instead of mushrooms and then simply baked until the meat is tender. The cola's sweetness takes the fire out of the peppers & makes a wonderful sauce.
THE COLA MADE THE MEAL DISGUSTINGLY SWEET, AND THE LITTLE BIT OF ROSEMARY OVERPOWERED THE WHOLE DISH. MY HUSBAND AND I COULDN'T STAND THE AFTER TASTE...YUCK!!!
This recipe was pretty sweet. I added more broth and garlic salt. I also added worchestire sauce and balsamic vinegar. I served over rice. It wound up being very good. My mom loved it, too.
Good flavor, but I agree, sauce is kind of sweet. Either use more chix broth or less cola. Kids loved it, very easy, I used skinless breast's and cooked 15 minutes. Worth another shot if you ask me.
Thanks for the great recipe!
This is an easy, impressive dish for a small dinner get-together. As a bonus, leftovers are scrumptious and since it falls into the tastes-better-the-next-day category, it can be prepared in advance -- save the saute part for just before the guests are to arrive. For extra punch, thicken with a giant can of undiluted chicken soup instead of flour (which also will stretch the leftovers, by the way)
If you're garlic and onion freaks, like my family, double both ingredients (at least). I served the dish with rice pilaf and a very simple mixed-fruit salad, and people called the next day for the recipe.
This recipe was wonderful! I didn't have the recipe in front of me when I made it, so I inadvertently used the whole 14-oz. can of chicken broth, and correspondingly less cola. I served it over white rice, and my husband added soy sauce at the table.
I liked it. My boyfriend thought the sauce was a little "funny".
