Chicken wings have never been easier or tastier than these coca-cola chicken wings. It might sound strange but the soda actually adds a lovely sweetness to the chicken. Add some Asian flavors like soy sauce and rice wine to balance out the flavors and you have one delicious meal. These wings are also baked and not fried, for an easier cleanup and healthier option. Just brown them on the stovetop and finish them in the oven until the juices run clear and toss them in the coca-cola wing sauce. Go ahead and give these wings a try, you won’t regret it!

  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 lb chicken wings, wings and drummettes separated
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Chinese rice wine
  • 3/4 cup Coca-cola

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Heat oil in a hot skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken wings until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Reduce heat to medium-low and add soy sauce, rice wine, and the coca-cola. Bring to a simmer and add the chicken back to the pan. Let cook for 5 minutes. Remove the chicken and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Continue to bake in the oven for another 10 minutes or until the wings are done.
Meanwhile, continue to simmer the sauce on the stove top until reduced by half. Brush the remaining sauce on the chicken wings if desired and serve.
