Slow Cooker

Cherry Coke Chicken

This recipe started out as a bit of an experiment. I’ve made beef in the slow cooker with pop before, but had never attempted it with chicken. I decided I’d give it a whirl and see what it was like. I added a can of cherries, Coca-Cola, barbecue sauce and chicken. I thought about adding onion soup mix too, but ended up leaving it out.

The result was interesting, but tasty! I didn’t find it overly sweet. John said whatever this is, make it again. I take that as a good sign. He ended up eating more than the rest of us.
