Coca Cola Chicken Wings 可乐鸡翅

Coca Cola Chicken Wings

I love watching cooking videos on YouTube. One can most certainly find something old, something new, something complicated and something easy.

For $12, I can get 4 kilos of chicken wings in QVM so yes we eat a lot of wings. I have deep-fried, pan-fried, braised, stewed, curried and steamed them for the last 10 weeks – I’m running out of ideas!

I consulted YouTube, came to a Moroccan cooking channel that showcased a beautiful Chicken Tajine with Preserved Lemon dish but I didn’t have that lovely Tajine so I started switching to other videos. With one video leading to another, I finally came to this – Coca Cola Chicken Wings. Hmmm… I’m not a fan of carbonated drinks or soda except when it’s in my whisky 🙂

Finally saw this promising dish that uses 2 pounds of chicken wings and a cup of Coca Cola. Hey, I have 1 kilo of wings defrosted in my fridge and presto! Coca Cola Chicken Wings for our next dinner. That was yesterday. Ray just got home from work and I wanted someone to back me up on this decision so I showed him the video. He okay-ed that and this afternoon after lunch at Gekkazan, we went to Big W and got some Cola. So here I present to you my experimentation with this recipe from EasyChineseFood on You Tube.

The chicken wings tasted great as promised in the video. It has somewhat a smokey flavour just like barbecued wings. This recipe is definitely for keeps.
