Coca Cola Quail is made with Coca Cola. I use left over bottles after visitors because it makes THE best sweet and sour. Give it a go.
Coca Cola Quail. Coca Cola Sweet and Sour
Quails , they are rather delicious. Seems people avoid them a bit because they have lots of bones and I suppose some people may not have cooked them before. Butterflied with only the leg bones remaining , they are no harder to cook than chicken. They are very quick cooking and have a delicate gamey taste. Game Farm have a range of prepared boned quails and quail breasts. Support your local butcher and ask them to order them in for you. The recipe for these Coca Cola quail was inspired by “ Have you Eaten” by Billy Law. I was quite surprised to see a recipe using Coca Cola , but after a quick search of the Internet I learned that the use of Coca Cola, lemonade and even Fanta are quite common, so I have re-created this unusual and surprisingly tasty recipe. I have used Quails for an elegant and quite fat free result but you can use drumsticks, chicken fillet, or even Spatchcock they will all taste delicious
