Recipe: Coca Cola Chicken Wings

I came across this dish when it was Donald’s, my trainee at work, turn to cook the day’s staff meal. Donald is a mainland Chinese, from Shenzhen, who loves to man the kitchen and any main dish with chicken wings is his favorite recipe. He said it was the easiest to make. And true enough, as I was observing him prepare the meal, I was amazed at how easy it was, with not much ingredients used, but the result is just perfect, utterly divine. Well, at least for chicken wing lovers like me.

And so I decided to try it on the day my siblings arrived here in SG for a short visit. It was well received. And since then, it has been my signature dish.

Coca Cola Chicken Wings

Due to popular demand - by Miko - I am posting my recipe for you to try at home. 🙂


800 grams of Chicken Wings

Best to get the wingette or mid-joint wing. But a full wing – complete with drumette, mid-joint and wing tip is fine.

1 cup light soya sauce

Honestly, it is only here in Singapore that I knew of a light and dark soy sauce.

1 can Coca Cola – NOT diet/light/zero or the flavored ones

Don’t you think that Coke is way better in can than the bottled ones? That’s the logic here (even if I can’t explain the logic), that it’s better to use Coke in Can than the one from the bottle.

2 tbsp Chinese Rice Wine

For a bit of a kick!

3-4 cloves of garlic and ginger

A dash of salt and pepper to taste


1. Before anything else. Marinade the wings in the soy sauce, mixing in the garlic and ginger, for about 15 to 20 minutes. Marinading it longer, in my experience, will make it even tastier.

2. After marinading. Using a non-stick pan, sear the chicken wings. Turn the chicken wings on until both sides are golden brown (not burnt) – roughly around 5 – 7 minutes.

3. After pan-searing. Pour in the marinade sauce, Coca Cola, and Chinese rice wine and bring it to simmer. You may pour a bit of salt (but with the soy sauce used, it would be salty enough) and pepper, according to taste. Leave for about 25 – 30 minutes until the liquid is reduced to glaze.

If you want a bit of sauce, you may turn off the heat once you are sure the chicken is cooked, about 20 minutes, and serve the chicken with the remainder of the sauce.

4. Serve and pig out! 🙂

It easy to add on to the ingredients according to your preference – maybe a bit of potatoes to increase the serving size, or spring onions for taste and color. It really is up to you and whatever it is that would satisfy your craving.

Happy cooking and enjoy your chicken wings as what we did yesterday. 🙂

    I say… I procrastinate a lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.
