Coca-Cola may be best known for its refreshing taste, but it also contains an effective cleaning ingredient. This soda can easily remove grease stains in kitchens and garages as well as tough rust buildup on tools.
Coke also helps to reduce the pH level of soil, which can be beneficial for plants like azaleas and bergenia.
Ke Le Ji Chi or Coca-Cola chicken wings have become a classic of Chinese cuisine and have become an irresistible treat. Made with braised chicken wings braised in a sauce made of Coca-Cola, soy sauce, aromatics and spices – then reduced to form an irresistibly sweet-sour glaze that has an enjoyable balance of flavors.
Coke-Cola Hot Wings recipe is an incredibly straightforward one to prepare, requiring minimal prep and little fuss. They’re ideal for parties, family dinners and sports watching events with their sweet and sticky flavor sure to please both kids and adults alike, while the tart glaze provides a satisfying appetizer that’ll satisfy any hunger pangs.
This recipe makes 32 chicken wings, enough for 4 entree-sized or 8 appetizer-sized servings. They make great meal prep items since leftovers will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
Begin by prepping the chicken. Remove any wing tips and pat the meat dry. Place on a baking sheet lined with foil, season with salt and pepper, and bake for 45 minutes to an hour, or until crisp and golden brown.
As the chicken bakes, make the sauce: mix Coca-Cola, sugar, tomato paste, garlic cloves and hot sauce until well combined and smooth. You may wish to garnish with smoked Spanish paprika or red chili flakes if desired.
Once the sauce is ready, add the chicken wings to the pan and toss to coat evenly. Simmer until wings are cooked through and well coated, about 5-7 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate and garnish with scallions if desired.
This sauce is so simple to make and sure to please everyone at your next party! Serve immediately or make ahead and store in the fridge for up to one day. As the flavors mellow and the cola thickens during cooking, you’ll have an irresistible sauce that everyone will love!
Though many of us know and love the classic soft drink, there are other ways to enjoy it that don’t involve downing a can. Some creative ideas include making a Coke-Cola cake, slow cooking a ham or flavoring chicken wings with soda.
Coca-Cola can be an invaluable addition to the kitchen, turning dry chicken into a sticky sweet treat that will have your mouth watering. Plus, the soda provides you with valuable sources of vitamin C – essential for strengthening your immune system and overall wellbeing.
This recipe is ideal for the calorie conscious, as it uses less than 1/4 glass of sugary soda. The key to success lies in the glaze: an even mixture of ingredients is key to getting maximum flavor and texture.
It’s simple to make this sauce and store it in the fridge for later! Just remember to thaw it out slightly before using on wings; this sauce will do its magic when baste them with it. At first glance, the sauce may seem runny; however, as they bake they thicken. Perfect for impressing dinner guests without deep-frying! You can even prepare this ahead of time by mixing everything together the day before; simply store in refrigerator until use with wings! You’ll have a sweet, sticky, slightly smoky treat ready to share with friends and family!
Coca-Cola is a high-sugar soft drink with an irresistible balance of sweetness and acidity that makes it ideal for flavorful dishes – particularly grilled meats where the soda’s acid helps maintain structure while softening its rich sugary taste.
Coca-Cola Hot Wings are one of my go-to dishes when having a Coke. These Cantonese braised chicken wings, known as “lu” (Lu Shui), have an irresistibly sweet glaze that holds them together and enhances other spices such as garlic, ginger and scallions.
To prepare the wings, you will need a large pot or wok. Wash until all chicken wings are clean and wipe away any extra blood from their tips.
Heat oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add ginger, garlic, and scallions; stir-fry until aromatic (about 2 minutes).
Add Coca-Cola and stir to combine. Let simmer until reduced to a thick, sticky glaze – about 5 to 10 minutes.
Make this sauce in advance and store in the fridge until serving. Just remember to add an extra splash of water to the pan before serving.
Another great idea is to stir-fry some scallion and ginger slices into the glaze as you stir-fry it. This will help diffuse the spicy, sweet, and sour flavors of the glaze while providing some crunch as well.

The sweetness of the potato will pair perfectly with the sweet and savory flavors of the wings. You can also serve them with a simple side salad to balance out the heat of the wings.
As for drinks, a cold beer or a glass of Coca-Cola is the perfect choice. The fizzy and refreshing taste of a cold soda will help to cool down your taste buds after indulging in the spicy wings.
Yes, you can use any type of Coca-Cola you prefer. Keep in mind that using a diet or zero calorie option may affect the flavor slightly.
