Apparently, this recipe is popular in China - Coco Cola Chicken Wings. There are indeed recipes where sodas are part of the ingredients, like 7-Up poured in mussels instead of wine and there are hams braised with Coke. Soda makes a good marinade, making the meat colorful and juicier.
- chicken wings - 2 pounds (separate the wings from the drummettes/drumsticks)
- soy sauce - 1/4 cup
- canola oil - 2 tbsp
- dry sherry - 2 tbsp (or Chinese rice wine)
- Coca Cola - 3/4 cup, original flavor
- scallions - 2, chopped
- pepper - to taste
- Put the chicken wings in a large bowl and pour half of the soy sauce on top.
- Make sure that the wings are well-coated and set aside, marinate for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat.
- Sear the chicken wings until they are golden brown on each side but not cooked through, about 5 to 8 minutes.
- Pour in the other half of the soy sauce, the sherry, and the Coke and bring the liquid to a simmer.
- Simmer the wings for 15 to 20 minutes, until the liquid is reduced to a glaze.
- Either sprinkle the scallions into the wok and stir them with the chicken wings and sauce, or save them for garnish.
- Season the chicken with black pepper.
- Transfer the chicken to a plate, garnish with scallions if you did not used them already, and serve.
