Barbeque Cola Chicken

6 Chicken drumsticks or boneless chicken
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cup barbeque sauce (more or less as desired)
1/2 can of coca cola
1) In a pot, boil chicken in water until it's almost cooked.
2) Drain the water out of the pot then add the minced garlic in the pot of chicken.
3) Add barbeque sauce in the pot (I used Tony Roma's)
4) Add the 1/2 can of cola and bring to a boil.
5) Reduce heat to medium and cook for about 30 minutes or until the sauce starts to thicken while drinking the leftover can of coke.
Pictured is chicken meat shredded off from the drumsticks. It's so soft that they usually just fall out of the bones. But in my case, Mr. P and lil P were just spoiled. They wanted me to take out the bones...

1/4 cup juice from lemon
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 pork tenderloin (total 2 lbs)
2 tbsp light brown sugar

Marinate the tenderloin in olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic in a ziplog bag, refrigerate for 30 min, turn over half way. Heat some olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place tenderloins in, reserved the marinade for later. Cook pork for 10 to 12 min until cooked to medium, turn to brown the other side. Remove and keep warm. Place the reserved marinade, the brown sugar, and salt in the skillet and bring to boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 5 min. Slice the pork and serve topped with the sauce. YUM!
