Camp cooking with a difference

Thursday, February 4, 2010
Uhu - I so clearly remember the night. We had this whole term program based on food - supposedly healthy food and one night, we challenged the youth to cook a coca-cola chicken!
yes - you read that right - cook with coca-cola. Well they were really looking forward to that.
So we had four groups of youth and they got the EXACT copy of the recipe each and yes we had the exact measured ingredients for each group- yet SOMEHOW we ended up having 4 very different meals. Still it tasted all right, and the kids had a ball. funny really watching them cut an onion, then wiping the eyes cause they cry - and in the process putting more onion stuff into eyes . . . . . .

anywoo - below is the workings - enjoy


2 1/2 lbs chicken breasts, cut into 1 1/2in strips
celery tops
3 tbs margarine
1 tart apple, peeled and diced
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 tbs curry powder
1/3 cups raisins
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cups Coca-Cola
3 1/2 tbs flour
1 cup evaporated milk
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
8 servings rice cooked to package directions

Cook chicken and a few celery tops in a large pot of boiling salted water. Cover, reduce heat to simmer and cook 45 minutes. In a large skillet, melt the margarine and add apple, onion, and curry powder. Sauté for 5 minutes. Stir in raisins, chicken broth, and Coke. In a medium pot, mix flour with cream. Stir until smooth. Add salt, pepper, and apple/onion mixture. Cook over low heat until thick and creamy. Add drained cooked chicken. Cool and pour into gallon double zip-lock. Store in cooler overnight. Reheat slowly and serve over cooked rice.

Thanks to Coke.
