We are all familiar with Coca-Cola (Coke) as a drink but do you know it can be used in cooking too? C0ca-Cola Chicken Wings (可乐鸡翅), is a classic Chinese recipe where Coke is used as the base of the simmering sauce, which not only tenderises but also cameralises the chicken wings. The result is delicious, finger-licking good chicken wings with a sweet & sticky glaze.

This is a super easy recipe with only a few ingredients and steps. I used to drink 1 can of Coke a day in my teens but nowadays I hardly touch any sweet drinks now as I became conscious about sugar intake. Sneaking in Coke into home cooking somehow feels less guilty than drinking it (even if it’s not true)!

    Mid-joint (plus the wing tip) is my favorite part of the chicken wing, to be specific. So I definitely love this. I remember trying BBQ wings marinated with Coke and five-spice powder when I was much younger and it was finger-licking good. Never tried cooking that at home though. This recipe looks easy. Shall try it when I get the big cooking mojo back.

    Mmmmmm….these wings look so glossy, juicy and delicious! I have yet to use Coke in cooking, but these look too good to pass up on, so I will bookmark this recipe for SOON! :)

    Interesting. This sounds good and I like that it uses Cola. My mom sometimes adds Sprite when making marinated soy sauce chicken, but we’ve never tried coke.

    Would it change the recipe drastically if I only used one type of soy sauce (dark)?

      sorry for the late reply. Yes can use one type if that’s all you have, add salt to taste if needed.

    I tried it but after cooking for more than 15mins I still don’t get he desire results. My gravy is still watery and doesn’t turn sticky. Anything went wrong?

      Hi did you measure the coca-cola? it’s 200ml, not the whole can. and water also 200ml. simmer between 15-20 minutes, or until reduced.
