Chicken Catch a Cola


"The idea of using a Cola beverage came to me after fixing 'Red eye gravy' that uses coffee for flavor. Here you get the cola flavor with a little sweetness. You will be very pleasantly surprised by the great flavor of this dish. Yum Yum."

  1. Combine the bread crumbs, paprika, salt, and pepper in a plastic bag. Place chicken breasts in the bag, and shake to coat.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken breasts, and cook for 4 minutes on each side, or until brown. Remove chicken to a plate, and keep warm. Pour the cola into the skillet, and stir to remove any browned chicken bits from the pan. Add ham, mushrooms, sherry, and balsamic vinegar. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, uncovered, until the liquid has reduced by 1/2.
  3. Stir sour cream into the skillet, and return chicken breasts to the pan. Cover, and simmer for 5 more minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink, or the internal temperature is 170 degrees F (75 degrees C). Remove chicken to serving plates, and spoon sauce over.

Sauce was good up to the point of adding the sour cream. I didn't like the flavor the sour cream made. Family loved it though.

My husband and I loved this recipe! He said it was the best chicken he had ever had. I thought it was really simple to make since I am not the best cook. The only thing I would suggest is to dou...

This really turned out great! I did add some chopped onions to the chicken for an extra kick. And I think that next time I will add some corn starch to the sauce to thicken. It was wnderful serv...

Served this on top of mashed potatoes! My husband said this is something I could make "regularly".
