Ginger Ale Chicken

This is an absolute must try recipe.  I may be a bit biased since this is another childhood favourite of mine, but it truly is an extremely tasty and super quick, easy recipe.  Enjoy with rice and baby peas.

Ginger Ale Chicken



12 chicken thighs
60g packet white onion soup powder 
500ml ginger ale


  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C.
  2. Place the chicken pieces in a casserole dish.
  3. Mix the soup powder and ginger ale in a large bowl or jug as it bubbles up quite a bit and pour over the chicken.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes stirring twice through the cooking process to ensure the sauce does not go lumpy.

  2. If it’s a childhood favorite that does sound like a must try. Not sure where to find white onion soup powder though. We have a product called Lipton Onion Soup mix. I wonder if that is similar.

    I love ginger ale on occasion. We had a famous department store in Chicago called Marshall Fields that sold “Sprite Cake” that I always wanted to try.

    • Hi Michael, I am sure your Lipton Onion Soup mix will do the trick – I can’t vouch that it will have the same thickening effect gram for gram but I say definitely worth a try. 🙂 Please let me know how it turns out.
      Hmm, Sprite Cake certainly sounds very interesting.

  3. Wouldn’t you know I just took out a package of chicken to thaw for tomorrows dinner…now guess what I am going to make? If it is anywhere near as tasty as your Curry Chicken Recipe, we will be in seventh heaven!

    • Fabulous, I can’t wait to hear how you enjoy it. Your husband is sure to enjoy it as it has lots more sauce than the curried chicken casserole 😀 Here’s hoping you will both be in seventh heaven!
