The recipe I am sharing today is a recipe that I consider breaks the tradition of Chinese cooking. I have heard about this recipe for chicken wings a lot. Every recipe has a slight difference. So here we go, Coca Cola chicken wing.
Coca Cola chicken wings uses Coca Cola as base for the sauce. After the Coca Cola is reduced in volume, the sugar in the soda gives the chicken wings a very nice color. For the taste, it is also kid friendly. I will suggest not to serve this with too much sauce
on top, too much sugar is not good for ANYBODY (not just kids)
A dozen chicken wings
4 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 slices ginger root
2 green onion-white part only
5 Szechuan pepper corn
10 dried chili peppers (you may reduce it to your taste if you do not like it too spicy)
1 can regular/diet Coca Cola
Rinse the chicken well, and dry with a paper towel.
Heat up 2 tablespoon vegetable oil in a frying pan, and put in the chicken wings. Pan fry until both sides of the chicken wings become golden yellow. Transfer to a plate, and set aside.
Transfer the leftover oil to a wok, and add 2 tablespoon vegetable oil. Heat it up. Put in ginger root, pepper corn and dry chili peppers and stir fry for 30 seconds until the flavor comes out. Then put in the chicken wings and pour in the Coca Cola. Put in
the green onion.
Turn the stove to high until it simmers. Then turn the stove to medium to keep it simmering.
Cook until the sauce becomes thickened. Pick up the chicken wings to serve. (If you really want the sauce, I suggest just putting a little bit on the wings because most of the sugar is now in the sauce unfortunately)
