Coca cola chicken wings

Sometimes the Facebook status updates can give interesting ideas. I read about coca cola chicken for the first time when she updated about how she was enjoying those. A quick search on the internet revealed it to be chicken marinated in coca cola and other Chinese sauces and then pan-fired, while the coca cola is reduced to a glaze. It sounded like an interesting idea and I decided to try it. I got some chicken wings. And even though the skin adds to the ‘unhealthy-ness’ of the dish, it adds to the taste. I kept it simple. Coca cola, soy sauces, rice wine, that was all for the marinade. The coca cola when reduced caramelized into this nice sweetish glaze for the succulent chicken wings. It was one of those foods when I love to not only use my fingers to eat but also actually get messy while doing so!
