To be completely honest with you all I did not make us this recipe and I don’t claim to. However I could not tell you the person whom I got it from many years back…. There was a girl I worked with for only about a month about 8 years ago… This girl, I cannot remember her name or even what she looked like, well she had a brother, I never met him… Said brother then had a girlfriend, I never met her. This girlfriend she was asian (I have no idea where from, as I said, never met her). Well it was her that this recipe was written down by, given to her boyfriend – the brother – and then passed onto this girl who I used to work with who then handed it over to me.
This is such a great recipe. Something just a little different to the usual recipe’s you will find but with a beautiful taste… A little sweet, a little salty, a little spicy and just all round awesome!
Well I’m glad we got all that out of the way and now I can do my duty of sending this recipe out to you so you can enjoy it in the comfort of your own home thinking of people from your past that you don’t remember and the random things that they have done which have caused a ripple in your life 🙂
Coke Chicken Stir-fry
2 chicken thighs, cut into cubes.
1/2 onion, chunky sliced
4 cloves garlic, rough chopped
small thumb of ginger, rough chopped
1/2 fresh chilli, chopped or a good pinch of dried chilli flakes
salt and pepper
1 Tbsp soy sauce. Today I used a dark soy sauce but any type will work fine.
1 cup coke
Vegetables – I have used carrot, mushroom, cabbage and broccoli as that was what was in my fridge today. You can use what you like or just don’t add any extra vegetables – Cut the vegetables chunky so they retain texture while cooking.
Rice to serve
1. Place onion, garlic, chilli and ginger into a large pan with 1 Tbsp of oil.
2. Turn the heat onto high and cook a little until fragrant – when you can start to smell the garlic and ginger. This takes about 1 minute.
3. Add the chicken and stir-fry until the chicken is starting to colour.
4. At this stage I added my carrot and mushroom along with the salt and pepper and cooked about 1 more minute to lightly fry the vegetables.
5. Add the coke and soy sauce, cook over high heat until the sauce starts to reduce and the chicken is fully cooked
6. As the sauce reduced I added the broccoli and cabbage as I only wanted them to cook a little bit.
7. Cook a further 2 minutes and remove from heat.
8. Serve with fresh rice and enjoy!
