    All of the dishes above look so attractive and appetizing, but it’s too hot to cook indoors. However, they have an irresistible flavor that make me enter my hot kitchen to do some. My usually-cooked food is grilled cola chicken. My way of cooking this dish is a little bit of different. I finish it by drizzling some honey over for sweetness. Leave it on the plate for some minutes for each thread of chicken absorbed with honey. Try my way and I am sure you like it!
