This Coca Cola fried chicken recipe by Simply Mama Cooks on YouTube shows how to make a seasoned brine using Coca Cola as the base. The sweetness of the soda would cookout in the process with a subtle flavor. The coloring from the soda makes the crust of the chicken looks perfectly brown, but some may say it’s burnt. I like my fried chicken to be fried hard and extra crispy. I’m so excited to try this fried chicken recipe out because it looks tender yet crispy.



  • 3 to 3 1/2 lbs bone-in chicken
  • 3 cups Mexican Coca-Cola
  • 2 Tbsp spice blend *recipe below
  • 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup Louisiana hot sauce
  • cooking oil for frying

Flour Dredge

  • 2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp spice blend

Wet Mix

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup of flour dredge

Spice Blend Mix

  • 1 Tbsp chicken bouillon powder
  • 1 Tbsp Lawry’s Seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp Salt-Free Poultry Blend Mix
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp lemon pepper


First, add the bone-in chicken to a baking dish and pour the Coca-Cola on top along with the hot sauce and spice blend mix. Mix everything together and let it marinate for about 3-4 hours.

Next, prep the dredge, coat the chicken, and let it sit for about 15 minutes before frying. This allows the breading to stick and adhere better to the chicken before frying. In the meantime, heat up a pot with oil that’s about 360-365F. Fry the chicken in hot oil for about 15-17 minutes.

In conclusion, I love fried chicken and it would be interesting to see what it would taste like with a Coca-Cola brine. I think it would add a nice tenderness to the chicken when it sits in the brine for a couple of hours before dredging and frying.
