Cola adds a sweet resonance to barbeque sauce in this marinated chicken for the grill.

Ingredients

1 1/2
cups barbecue sauce
2
tablespoons dried minced onion
1
can (12 oz) cola carbonated beverage
12
boneless skinless chicken breasts

Steps

  • 1 In medium bowl, mix barbecue sauce, minced onion and cola beverage. Divide barbecue sauce mixture evenly into 2 (1-gallon) resealable food-storage plastic bags. Add 6 chicken breasts to each bag; seal bags and turn to coat. Refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight to marinate, turning bags once or twice.
  • 2 When ready to cook chicken, heat gas or charcoal grill. When grill is heated, carefully oil grill rack. Remove chicken from marinade; reserve marinade. Place chicken on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill over medium coals; cover grill. Cook 12 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally, until juice is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut and thermometer inserted in centers reads 170°F.
  • 3 In 1-quart saucepan, heat remaining marinade to boiling. Serve chicken with sauce.
