How To Make Coke Zero Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken:
Place your chicken in a gallon Ziploc bag, then add the bottle of soy sauce and a squirt of lemon juice.
Allow the chicken pieces to marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight.
Spray your slow cooker with a non-stick spray. If you don’t want to use a nonstick spray you can use a slow cooker liner.
Use tongs to remove your chicken pieces from the bag to place in the crockpot.
Pour in a can of Coke Zero and cover in bbq sauce.
Allow to cook on low in your crockpot for 6 hours, be sure to watch them to not overcook, and stir often.

I don’t think I’ve ever had wings made in a slow cooker. I think I would miss the crispy breading/skin. I guess I could toss them in the broiler real quick to crisp them up.

These look perfect for game day! I love Vanilla Coke and Cherry Coke while Hubs is a Coke Zero fan!
My huband loves wings! Last time I made them I set off the smoke detector, so I think your recipe in the slow cooker looks ideal.
Leona astoria says
could you please give the coke zero cooker bbq chicken with the amounts of the ingrediants. I would like to try this recipe but not sure how much soya sauce, etc to use. Thanks
I just updated the post. I used a small bottle of soy sauce in the bag with my wings. You could use more depending on how you like them to taste but I don’t like the strong soy taste. You mainly want enough to coat all the wings and for them to chill in while they soak in the fridge.
