  • 8 chicken legs or thighs
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 cup Coca-Cola
  • 1 ΒΌ cups chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. In a large sauce pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil. Working in batches, brown the chicken on all sides, 5 to 8 minutes total, adding more oil to the pan as needed.
  • Transfer to a plate. Set aside.
  • Reduce the heat to medium, add the onions and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the Coca-Cola, tomato paste, sugar and stock and bring to a boil, stirring to scrape up the browned bits from the pan bottom.
  • Return the chicken to the pan and spoon some of the sauce over the chicken. Cover the pan, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced with a knife, about 45 minutes.Sprinkle fresh parsley and serve warm with rice on the side.
