Cherry-Coke Chicken Wings:

This post is a translation of Klaus-Grillt’s awesome chicken wings recipe. The chicken wings are made on a grill and seasoned with an awesome sauce/marinade that is based on cherry coke. 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1,5 kg or 3 lbs of chicken wings – We only use 1 kg or 2 lbs, because we love that extra amount of the sauce!
  • salt, black pepper, paprika powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar beet molasses
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper or chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 liter cherry coke (Coca Cola Cherry – It must have sugar in it!!!)
  • 200 ml cherry juice

 

Preperations of the chicken wings:

  • Put the cherry coke und cherry juice in a pod and start to boil it. You need to reduce it until it is like a syrup. So 1.2 liters needs to be reduced to 100-200ml.
    It takes about 45 mins. So keep that in mind while preparing.
  • When the liquid is reduced add the molasses, tomato paste, chili powder and the garlic powder. Mix it while it is still hot. – Don’t let the sauce get cold. You can handle it way better while it is still warm/hot.
  • We usually cut the wings in 2 pieces: drummet for me, flat part for the wife.
  • Season the chicken wings with salt, pepper and some paprika powder.
  • Preheat the grill and put the wings over direct heat for about 10mins. They need to get a nice sear.
  • Take the chicken wings off the grill and place them in a large bowl.
  • Pour the warm sauce over the wings and mix it until everything is covered. – But save some of that sauce for later!
  • Now place the wings over indirect heat (180°C or 350F) and grill them for about 45 mins.
  • It is time to give the wings a second layer of that delicious sauce. This step is optional as it is not in the original recipe. BUT I am pretty sure you will do one layer only once! Trust me. You want that extra taste!

 

Result:

These wings are so damn delicious. They are kinda sweet with an awesome taste of malt and a bit spice. It is hard to describe it. The best way is to make some!!!
