    This looks like something I need to cook... except I have to admit that we have had four cans of lemon-lime soda in the fridge for ages because the first two of the six-pack were vile tasting to both of us. So my question is how much of the flavor of the soda brand is prominent in the overall flavor of the chicken? Is it like root beer in a pot roast, which you can't really tell is there? Or would this seem as vile as the soda was?
