Cola Chicken Wings 可乐鸡翅

I have bookmarked this recipe long time ago, just tried it yesterday since I have some chicken wings left in the fridge but run out of idea what to cook.

Coca-cola Chicken Wings


Coca-cola Chicken Wings



This recipe very similar to braised soy sauce pork ingredients but instead of adding water but this time replace it with Coca-cola drink, the taste is a bit sweet, something like honey glaze chicken wings. I feel this Cola chicken wing is not suitable to eat with steamed rice but having it with a glass of beer, I think it will more suitable. Ya, I also add in 3 hard-boiled eggs, the taste was quite good.


Recipe was adapted from Nancymummy

Cola Chicken Wings 可乐鸡翅

2. Add in garlic, ginger, five star and cloves, sprinkle wine at the side of the wok.

I cooked this once with chicken chunk 2 years ago. The chicken meat was very tender, I think it's due to the soda in the soft drink. It is a bit to the sweet side I remembered.

I shall try your recipe one of these days.

Wow! Never tried it with cola but yours looks perfectly coated. Good one!! You should sent your recipe to Coca Cola. :)

I know this is delicious...ham with coca cola glaze is popular here. My mom makes chicken with Dr. Pepper, not sure if you can get that soda there or if it's just a USA thing.
