Coca-Cola or Orangina Chicken

  • Preparation 15 MIN
    Cooking 1 H
    Marinating 1 H
  • Servings 4



  1. In a bowl, combine the ginger, garlic, orange zest, juice and soft drink. Add the chicken, coat and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 190 °C (375 °F). Drain the chicken and place in a baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake the chicken for about 1 hour. During the last 30 minutes of cooking, baste with the marinade about 4 times. The chicken skin should be crispy. Remove the chicken from the baking dish. Deglaze with a little broth, scraping the bottom, if necessary. Strain the cooking juices through a sieve and serve as a sauce.


If cooking a chicken in beer surprises you, imagine this chicken recipe where it bastes in Coca-Cola. Ribs with coca-cola is an old classic.
