My family’s favorite Coca-Cola chicken wings! The chicken wings are pan-fried and then simmered with Coca-Cola. It has a sweet, salty, and caramel-like taste.

Since Coca-Cola chicken wings have become popular, we have more dishes cooked with these sweet drinks, such as Coca-Cola ribs. The slightly sweet taste of the drink can spare other condiments and seasoning, making this one of the most straightforward recipes. This is no failure as long as some minor details are concerned. In addition to chicken wings, you can use Coca-Cola to braise ribs, too.

Cook’s Note

  1. You can pan-fry the chicken wings until slightly browned or blanch them in boiling water for about 30 seconds. The first treatment adds extra flavors and makes the chicken wings chewier. The second treatment gives the skin a smooth and soft texture.
  2. The chicken wings are made from bones, ginger, and scallion to help remove any raw odd taste.

Ingredients

  • 500g chicken wings, around 12 to 14 middle wings
  • 1 tbsp. cooking wine
  • 600ml coca cola
  • One large piece of ginger, sliced
  • 4 scallions divided
  • 1/2 tbsp. cooking oil
  • a small pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp. light soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. oyster sauce,(optional )

Steps

Make some small cuts on the back of the chicken wings, making the flavors better absorbing.

Add the chicken wings to cold water, and add cooking wine. Cook for about 1 minute after boiling. This is optional, but it helps to remove the odd taste further.

Add about 1/2 tablespoon of cooking oil to a pan and fry the chicken wings until slightly browned. This step is a must. Browned and crispy surface brings lots of flavors.

Add coca-cola, a tiny pinch of salt, light soy sauce, and oyster sauce with two scallions and several slices of ginger.

If you prefer a sweeter but not savory taste, you can skip light soy sauce and oyster sauce.

  1. Such a cool recipe. I am fascinated by most of the recipes on you blog anyway, and am started to try something out here and there: new food world for me, but exciting.

    I do have a question for you though: how would you serve this dish, in the sense of: what else would you eat with it? What is a usual family way of eating Sichuan style food? Would you serve a meat or tofu dish with a rice or noodle dish next to it? Some vegetable dish? Some chili oil as extra? Or pickles even?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Saba,
      This is a complete dish without any dips like chili oil. It can be considered as a main dish, you can match it with healthier and lighter vegetables.

  2. All your recipes are amazing. I’m total beginner in Asian cooking and I found it so easy to follow and they tasted so yummy
    Thank you from UK

  3. I have recently started a web site, the info you offer on this site has helped me greatly. Thank you for all of your time & work.

  4. Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  5. You must participate in a contest for the most effective blogs on the web. I’ll advocate this site!
