Talk about fusion, now I tried to find the history of this dish but I could not find a concrete story on how it was created but the general fact was that this dish was developed during the westernisation of the Asian world. When the western world started to merge and introduce various products into Asia, the 2 very different culinary worlds collided giving birth to various yummy dishes, one being this.
Coca-Cola normally isn't that healthy due to the high amount of sugar present within it, but for cooking some yummy wings this is exactly what we need. Braising chicken wings with Coke allows the sugar to coat, tenderise and flavour the meat whilst the bubbles and gas helps tenderise the meat further.
This is a quick simple and unique recipe, great for parties and shocking individuals with its unique yummy flavour. The perfect blend of sweet, savoury, and just perfectly tender fall a-part wings.
20 Chicken Wings
1 Can of Coke
3tb of Dark Soy Sauce
1tb of Ligth Soy Sauce
1 Thumb Sized Piece of Ginger
If you got the whole wings like I did go ahead and separate the drummet (the little drum stick) from the flat (the chicken wing), this is just so we got more wings (YAY)
Peel and thinly slice 1 thumb sized piece of ginger.
In a wok on HIGH heat add in enough oil to coat the base of your wok/pan.
Gently add in your ginger and give it a quick fry till it is nice and fragrant.
Add in your chicken wings bit by bit and get them to nicely brown and put on some nice colour.
Add in one can of coke, 3tb of dark soy sauce and 1tb of light soy sauce and reduce the heat to medium.
Let it simmer and bubble away for 15-20 minutes.
The sauce should have greatly thickened, now blast up the heat to HIGH and continuously stir and let the sauce thicken and coat your lovely chicken wings.
Season with salt to taste, serve up and garnish with some nice sesame seeds.
Extra: psst you can use pepsi even or any other cola of choice, you don't have to use coke.
