I like to make my bbq pork using root beer, so why not grilled cola bbq chicken?

Today, I have a tasty grilled chicken recipe with a bbq sauce made using cola – I used Coca Cola Classic! The sauce gets some spice from hoisin sauce and red pepper flakes. This had the perfect amount of heat for us, but add a little more if you like  it spicy.

You could it it as is with sauce, but we enjoy it served over hot rice!
