Everyone is familiar with the Beer Butt Chicken?

If not you use a beer pop it open and put it in the body cavity of the chicken before roasting.

I have done the same thing, except with Sunkist Orange Soda.

I also marinated it over night in a coupe of cans of soda.

Aside from the health implications (That's a lot of sugar) it was impressively good.

It did die the chicken bright orange so people not knowing what to expect will be shocked. I had one friend that just shook his head till he ate it.

It pairs well with anything and it akin to the orange chicken found in Asian restaurants.

Sounds great! Would fruit juice be a healthier alternative? One of our favorite recipes for fresh caught striped bass involves baking with three different juices mixed together. It must be mixed with a half cup of each. If you need more than 1 1/2 cups you must do two batches, not just more amounts of each. Something to do with the chemistry & the juice interacts when mixed. My wife sometimes bakes chicken parts layered in a pan with fruit slices.

It might be, I'll try juice at some point and report back.

I wanted it to taste like orange soda. I think OJ would be good, but different.
