Coca-Cola Chicken Wings


  • 2 pounds chicken wings, wings and drummettes separated
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry or Chinese rice wine
  • 3/4 cup Coca-Cola (not diet or anything flavored!)
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • A few pinches of freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Put the chicken wings in a large bowl and pour half of the soy sauce on top. Turn the wings so they are well-coated and allow them to marinate for 10 to 15 minutes at room temperature.
  2. Heat a wok or large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken wings until they are golden brown on each side but not cooked through, about 3 minutes each side. Pour in the other half of the soy sauce, the sherry, and the Coke and bring the liquid to a simmer. Simmer the wings uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes, until the liquid is reduced to a glaze.
  3. Season the chicken with black pepper. Transfer the chicken to a plate, garnish with scallions, and serve.
