Clean and cut the chicken in pieces.
In a large skillet heat the oil and fry the chicken pieces until brown. Remove from heat and let cool.
In the meantime, using a food processor, blend hot peppers, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper with a spoon or two of diet coke. You should obtain a creamy paste.
Lay the chicken pieces in an oven baking pan and spread them with the paste.
Add the remaining coke on the bottom of the pan.
Cook in the preheated oven at 400F for about 60-90 minutes or until ready.
Serve with mashed or oven baked potatoes.
You can use regular coke or your favorite soda like Pepsi if you like it better.
