  • Serves: 4
  • Cooking Time: 40 mins
  • Course: Main Course
  • Cuisine: American


  • 8 boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 x 330ml can cola
  • 60ml soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp five spice powder
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • Salt and pepper


Serves four. Preheat an oven to 200 degrees/gas 6. Put the chicken into a gratin dish. Mix all the other ingredients together and pour over the chicken. Bake for about 30-40 minutes.

The chicken should be nice and crispy and the sauce reduced a little. If you feel it’s drying up too much, then cover it with tin foil or add a couple of tablespoons of water during cooking.

I was apprehensive that this was going to make the pan so sticky that I lined the gratin dish with parchment paper. This meant things didn’t reduce and get as sticky as possible, but it did save on the washing up. This is devilishly moreish.
