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)!

    Thank you for this wonderfully easy yet yummy recipe! Tried it last week and we finished 8 chicken wings within mins! Like to check if we can add rice wine to the recipe? Thanks!

      yup, you can add rice wine if you like to. Glad you like it!

        Tried adding rice wine but I don’t think it is that nice.. it adds a bitter aftertaste which spoils the sweetness. :P

    At first I thought I put too much cola and water, but once the water evaporates with the boiling of the sauce, it starts to be thicken. Hah, for ppl like myself, who took the coke directly from the fridge, it will take a lot longer… since I have to wait for the sauce to boil. So lucky I found this site. It will be my saving grace when I move to Aussie without my parents’ home cooking =P

      thanks, glad it’s a success. yes it does seem a lot of sauce at first, but it will nicely cameralised and thicken as the sauce simmers.

    May I know if it’s possible to use chicken fillets instead of the wings / drumsticks?

    Thank you!

      Hi, it is highly recommended to cook this with skin/bone on type of cut, but you can substitute with chicken fillet if you like.

    Can we bake the chicken wings?


    • wiffy replied: — September 13th, 2012 @ 10:10 am

      I’ve not tried, but yes you can bake them.

    Hi Wiffy,
    I put 100ml water and more dark soya sauce as it tasted bland and looked light even after simmering for 15 min. The longer it simmers, say at least 30min, the better it tastes.


    • wiffy replied: — October 10th, 2012 @ 12:30 pm

      Hi Pauline, did you use the cooking/baking measurement spoons for tsp/tbsp not the silver spoons we use as cutlery? Yes, feel free to adjust the ingredients/simmering time to suit your preference.


  7. Pauline — October 10, 2012 @ 2:22 pm

    Yes, I used measuring spoon. My improvised method worked. It was yummy! Thanks!

    Did i need to put salt and garlic on it,,,?


    • wiffy replied: — December 26th, 2012 @ 3:38 pm

      no need salt as the soy sauces are salty. Garlic is up to you, you can add it if you like.

    Hi wiffy! Did you simmer with lid or without?


    • wiffy replied: — December 26th, 2012 @ 3:35 pm

      Hi Lily, I simmer with lid on.
