Coke Chicken

After 1 week of cooking, it's hightime for me to churn out somefin that my kids had not tried before. After looking at my freezer and finding a chicken in there, I decided to create a chicken dish. I heard that coke chicken is a very common dish in China. Practically every family knows how to cook this dish. However, for me, I've not the slightiest idea how to go about creating this dish. So I googled for a recipe and came up with this. Verdict : Somehow my kids dun like the taste of this dish. They din like the sauce. DS said the sauce is too sweet (but I din find it so, in fact it tasted rather sour to me). DD said she dun like the lemon . As for DH, he found the dish rather interesting. I guess he likes it. :P
What you need
  • Half a chicken (chopped to pieces)
  • Some julienned ginger
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups cocoa cola
  • 1 1/2 tsp cornflour
  • some cooking oil
  • 2 tbsp dark soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
