Coca Cola Chicken Wings

My favorite coca cola chicken wings !
coca cola, one of my favorite drinks, I do not remember whey coca cola becomes a sauce of cooking meat in China but the fact is that Coca Cola is quite popular in China nowadays. And since coca cola chicken wings become popular, we get more dished cooked with this sweet drinks such as coca cola ribs etc. The slight sweet taste bought by the drink can spare other condiments and seasoning, which makes this as one of the simplest recipe. This is no failure as long as some small details are concerned. In addition to chicken wings, you can use coca cola to braise ribs too.

However in order to make an evenly flavored and well cooked coca cola chicken wings, there are several important tips.

Cook’s Note

  1. You can choose to pan-fry the chicken wings until slightly browned or blanch the chicken wings in boiling water for around 30 seconds. The first treatment brings some extra flavors and make the chicken wings more chewy. The second treatment gives the skin a smooth and soft texture.
  2. Use ginger and scallion to help remove any raw odd taste from the chicken wings, since they are bones contained.
  3. Control the simmering time well, so the chicken wings will not be over cooked. I usually boil the cola previously. On one hand, this can shorten the thickening time. On the other hand, pouring hot cola to the pan-fried chicken (already hot) can keep the chicken meat tender.
