Mum-of-four shares family favourite slow cooker recipe for sticky honey cola chicken and it’s so simple

A MUM-of-four has revealed the secret to her family’s favourite sticky honey chicken dish in the slow cooker is to add Coca Cola. 

Jessie Sullivan, from London, shared a mouthwatering photo of the tasty meal – and said her kids request it all the time. 

Writing on a Facebook foodie group, she captioned the post: “Today’s cooking [heart eyes emoji]”.

Speaking to the Daily Star, she said: “My kids love this dish, my daughter requested me to make it for her.

“If you’re making it you can also use chicken breast and sausages or add a tin of beans.”

This alternative recipe is perfect for those who are fussy about eating meat off the bone. 

The Coca Cola sticky chicken dish is easy to follow and perfect if you want to stick it on the night before and eat the next day when you are hungry. 

To make the tasty flavour, you need to season the chicken, before adding tomatoes, mixed herbs and honey – and then pour half a bottle of Cola when you put the mix in the slow cooker. 

If you stick to the ingredients, the meat should be caramelised by the sauce and come out perfectly browned.
