Coca Cola Wings – these coca cola wings are sticky, sweet, a bit spicy, juicy and most of all yummy.
This picture doesn’t do these wings justice.
They were sticky, they were sweet, they were a bit spicy, they were fantastic. And yes, I am talking just about chicken wings. But these aren’t just any chicken wings. There are coca cola wings. Who says coke is just for drinking?
Now you can have your coke and eat it too. OK, that’s lame, I admit it. But these wings truly are delicious.
Why do I dare try such weird combinations? Because I love wings, and you know what’s even better about these wings. They are BAKED. I always bake my wings. Honestly, I think they turn out much better because they’re so much juicier, not to mention less calories. So I love to try my chicken wings many different ways, and I won’t stop posting chicken wings recipes, until I’ve had enough. Don’t think that’s going to happen any time soon.
And now I know you’re just dying for the recipe, so here it is.
Oh I almost forgot. Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends. Have a happy happy turkey day. We canucks already had our turkey day back in October, so enjoy it my friends. Eat lots of turkey.
- 2 lbs chicken wings
- ¾ cup coca cola
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup good red wine
- 2 tbsp honey
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tbsp basil, chopped
- 1 tsp chili powder
- In a bowl whisk all the ingredients together, and then add the chicken wings. You should have enough marinade so that it covers the chicken, if not, just add more coke. Cover with plastic wrap and marinade for 2 hours to 6 hours. I marinated mine over night.
- Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper, or a silpat.
- Place wings on baking sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Take remaining marinade and cook it in a small sauce pan over medium heat. It will start to reduce and thicken in about 5 to 10 minutes. Once it has thickened into a thick sauce remove from heat. Once wings are done, brush wings with sauce and garnish with chives or green onions if preferred.
