Pollo con cola

I never came across this dish when in Peru. However when I saw this in a Peruvian cookbook I got for my birthday I knew I needed to try it. Fitting really because exactly 8 years ago I just finished the Inka trail!
½ made dinner tonight (mostly), it was the excitement of consuming coca cola (which she isn't allowed and therefore very curious about).

Got a chicken from the butcher who quartered it for me. I chopped a large onion and 4 garlic cloves.
½ measured out 250ml coca cola, 60ml soya-sauce, 2tbsp Chinese five spice and 1tsp cumin. She mixed all the ingredients together and poured it over the chicken, who was waiting in the slow cooker (I did that bit). Sorted!

I did do more... After 4.5 hrs it was cooked and falling off the bone however I wanted it to crisp up so I put into my lovely enamel roaster  (£1.99 charity shop bargain) and I a hot over for 15mins.
My verdict... Yes very very tasty and not coca cola tasting at all. I did the Novella gammon in cola before and remember that didn't taste like coca cola either. It is quite rich which means there are even more left overs than usual. And very easy to make... Even a 5 year old can do it.
