Servings: 6


  • 2 lbs chicken wings
  • 2 tbsp vegetable or canola oil 
  • 2 tbsp shaoxing cooking wine or dry sherry
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 12 oz coca cola
  • 0.50 oz fresh ginger peel and thinly sliced
  • ½ tsp dark soy sauce optional


  • chopped thai peppers
  • chopped green onions
  • white sesame seeds


  • Clean and pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels.
  • Heat a pan up to medium-high. Add oil and wait for 30-45 seconds.
  • Fry them in 2 batches and careful not to overcrowd as they may stick to each other. Cook for 2-3 minutes (per-side) or until slighly golden per batch. Set aside on a plate/bowl and continue with the rest of the chicken wings.
  • Return the first batch of chicken wings to the pan.
  • Add thinly sliced ginger, shaoxing cooking wine, soy sauce, salt & coca cola. If you prefer the wings to be slightly dark brown, add ½ tsp dark soy sauce to the pan. Mix the sauce.
  • Bring the sauce to a simmer then turn down the heat to medium and cook for 35-45 minutes or until the sauce has thickened (until the excess water has evaporated to your liking). Make sure to stir and flip the chicken wings frequently.

Garnish with red pepper, chopped green onion & white sesame seeds.
