The prep for this Nuricook recipe does require some skill, but the results are worth the effort. You can switch the Coca-Cola with Root Beer or Vimto.


  • 2 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 red pepper cut into strips
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 250ml bottle of Coca-Cola
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 tbsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black & red pepper
  • 1 cup of BBQ sauce
  • 4 tortillas
  • 1 large diced tomato
  • 1 cup of grated cheese
  • Greek yoghurt
  • 10-12 jalapeños
  • Coriander sprigs


  • 1
    In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients with the Coca-Cola.
  • 2
    Place the chicken, red pepper and onion in the Nutricook pot and pour over the spice mix.
  • 3
    Place the lid on, close the pressure valve, and using the manual setting, set the timer for 8 minutes.
  • 4
    When cooked, release the pressure and the lid.
  • 5
    Remove one cup of broth from the pot and discard; using two forks shred the chicken.
  • 6
    Mix in the BBQ sauce, replace the lid and press the warm button function.
  • 7
    Next, prepare the tacos; preheat the oven to 180 degrees, stack the tortillas on a flat surface.
  • 8
    Using a saucer as a template, with a sharp knife cut two circles in each, discard the remainder.
  • 9
    Run each piece under a slow running tap; you just need to moisten each one slightly, then hang over the oven rack.
  • 10
    Bake for ten minutes, remove from the oven and cool upside down.
  • 11
    Finally, place the tacos on a serving dish, fill each one with chicken, top with yoghurt, tomato, cheese, jalapeños and coriander sprigs, and serve.
