Recipe: Crockpot Coca-Cola Chicken

If you're tired of reading my long, soapboxing posts, I've got good news for you. March is likely to be a lean month here at My Convertible Life.

Yesterday I started a new, part-time job in an office (marketing, communications and new media for an education non-profit) and I still have the old, part-time job at home (research and writing for a different education non-profit) -- and of course there's the whole wife-mom-friend-daughter job, too. I'll still try to get some posts in here and there, but didn't want you to worry about me (because I just know you're waiting every day for a new post) if there's not much to read this month.

So in keeping with a busier lifestyle, here's a recipe that I stole from another friend's blog that is hands-down one of the easiest ways to cook chicken in the crockpot. Just start it up in the morning, then add some broccoli and ready-made mashed potatoes (I recommend Country Crock or Bob Evans) to the plates at dinnertime and voila -- well-balanced, healthy meal with minimal effort (and minimal touching of raw chicken) that the whole family will eat.

Crockpot Coca-Cola Chicken

Ingredients:
  • 1 whole chicken, about 3 pounds (I used 4 boneless chicken breasts, but my friend used a 6 pack of chicken drumsticks)
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cola, Coke, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, etc. (we used Coke Zero)
Preparation:
  1. Wash and pat chicken dry. 
  2. Salt and pepper to taste. 
  3. Put chicken in crock pot with the onions on top. 
  4. Add cola and ketchup and cook on LOW 6 to 8 hours (less time if it's boneless breasts, maybe more time if it's something else).
