    Wow! Innovative idea of getting that perfectly-brown-all-over roasted chicken! Thanks for sharing!

    • Haha I won’t take credit for the technique. This one has been around for a while. :)

        Hi Ms. Connie, I was really thrilled and inspired to improve my cooking prowess. I only started cooking not long ago, but I believe that cooking is a passion in progress. Definitely, I won’t stop and rather improve my skills… I am still single but I need to learn more from you, from cookbooks and online recipe guides… Kudos to your blog and recipes! I am an AVID FAN ;) ?

    So, pwede siyang free range and still the owner can feed them with “commercial feeds”? Kasi ang nabibili ko sa Whole Foods naka-label – “Organic Free Range” and airt tight packed siya.

    • Yep, can be free range but not organic.

      Free range and organic would be top of the line (most expensive) but according to the lab tests I mentioned in the free range chicken post, there really isn’t much added value to free range AND organic. It’s the ability to roam freely that gives chicken the capacity to produce that-thing-I-can’t-remember-the-term which makes it nutritious.

    Hi, Ms. Connie!
    Wow, something new to me…Did you use the convection oven or the gas range? Thanks and more power :)

    Mam, in your opinion, is it better to cook this in a traditional wood stove?

    It’s similar to cooking those Beer can chicken recipe. Looks yummy. Surely the coconut cream added more taste to the chicken.

    HI Connie, I was showing this article to a friend and she asked me If the high oven temps did not alter the printing substance on the can. Any idea? I am making this any how when our beer bottles run out and we get some cans this time, though. :P

    Dear Connie,

    Its good to know this technique to your newsletter, can this roast chicken in soda be cooked also in turbo? Also, instead of water being filled in the soda can, maybe I’ll pour some marinade (half with water, perhaps) in it as you said the liquid pour inside the soda can will steam inside the cavity of the chicken to retain it’s moisture. I think I’ll try this tomorrow. Thanks a lot for sharing us always your knowledge and concern and happiness about the joy of cooking and discovering new things. I learned a lot in your blog as if, I had traveled, even thought am just viewing your blog thru internet.

    • The heat source of the turbo broiler is on top. The top side of the chicken, while positioned in the can, might be too near the heat source. This can result in the top overbrowning and burning before the rest of the chicken is done.
