Grilled Chicken Cola Marinade

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

One of my good blogging friends, Jamie over at Jamie Cooks It Up, recently posted a grilled chicken cola marinade recipe.  I have one that is similar. It uses Sprite or 7 Up in the marinade and is called Manti Turkey (or Chicken).  We love that recipe.  It also looks like I have never shared that recipe with you before, so the Manti Turkey recipe will soon be coming.  

Jamie’s recipe had a few different ingredients in her recipe including Coke or Pepsi, balsamic vinegar, and lime juice.  After seeing it I knew I had to try it.  I love the flavor that the cola added.  This grilled chicken cola marinade is yummy and easy.  Added it to my tried and true grilling recipes.  Thanks Jamie!

  1. So you can use soda as a marinade, awesome. I’m not a big soda drinker and I had some Dr. Pepper left over that I wanted to get out of my fridge, so I dumped it in a bag with two leg quarters, guava, molasses, hot sauce, a drizzle of sesame oil, shook it up and left it in the fridge for 30 mins. Tried baking it, but it smelled so maddeningly good that I finished it on the Foreman grill.

  2. I LOVE this recipe. I make it all the time and it never fails to please! I usually use cherry Dr. Pepper instead of Coke, because that is my dad’s favorite. It is delicious! Also, as a college kid without a grill, I tried broiling it in a pan…don’t do it. Even though I have non-stick pans and used lots of Pam, the marinade turned to syrup and I had a hard time keeping the chicken from becoming glued to the pan, not to mention a LOT of scrubbing after. Still tasted good though.
