Crispy Asian Style Coca Cola Chicken Wings Recipe

Behold, the slightly 'jazz', made up as we went along, despite reading a load of recipes online, Coca Cola Chicken Wing Recipe! 
I didn't measure anything as usual, sorry about that, but I say it's always good to go a little free form and feel it out. 


Chicken Wings
Baking Powder
Chinese 5 spice
Minced Ginger
Minced Garlic
Spring Onions (Scallions) 
Soy sauce
Coca Cola 

Start by tossing the chicken wings in some Chinese 5 spice and baking powder. Don't ask me why, but for some reason this guarantees some of the crispiest oven baked chicken wings in all eternity. You don't want to coat them like flour and accidentally taste the baking powder (and it's very important you don't use BAKING SODA!) but you want to ensure the skin has a light covering. 

Next you pop them onto a baking tray (spread out) and place in a preheated oven. Bake them at 250 degrees farenheit or 120 celcius for 25 minutes. 

For some reason this slow 'n low method means the fat renders nicely and helps to crisp 'em up. 

After 25 minutes, leave them in the oven but crank up that heat to 425°F or 425°C for another 30 - 40 minutes until they're golden brown and crispy as hell. 

Meanwhile, make the sauce. Combine ginger, garlic, onions, and chilli and fry over a medium heat in some sesame (or peanut oil) until soft. Add in a half cup of soy sauce and reduce. 

Finally pour in a medium sized glass coke bottle's worth of coke, and reduce again. Until it's sticky and sweet and delicious. 

When your wings are done, glaze them in the sauce and sprinkle with some additional scallions and sesame seeds. Then serve. Then eat. Then talk about murder.
