Cocoa Cola Chicken Wings

Cocoa Cola Chicken Wings

Wings Wings and More Wings.  That was my son’s answer when I asked what I should make for the “W” day in the A to Z challenge.  “So obvious mom!” he said with a silly grin.  What wasn’t obvious was what type of wings I should make.  I have already blogged about 5 other types of wings I have made (see bottom of this post) and didn’t want to repeat.  Wow… that’s about 5% of my posts so far! Well, we settled on Cocoa Cola Wings.  Yes I know…. It sounds strange, but they are pretty sticky good. (lots of napkins needed)

After viewing a few recipes online I decided to try Manuela’s from  ManusMenus version of coco cola wings which she adapted from Veronica’s MyCatholicKitchen.


  • 2 lbs. chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp dry sherry or rice wine
  •  1 cup Coca-Cola
  • Chopped chives for garnish


  1. Put chicken wings in a ziplock bag with half of the soy sauce
  2. Massage bag to insure the wings are all covered
  3. Marinate for 15 to 30 minutes
  4. Heat large pan or wok with vegetable oil
  5. Place wings in pan and cook wings until golden brown on both sides (about 4 minutes per side)
  6. Mix rest of soy sauce with sherry or rice wine and 1 cup Coca-Cola
  7. Pour over chicken
  8. Bring to a simmer and cook 20 minutes until liquid cooks down to a glaze
  9. Remove chicken, plate and garnish with chives
