Spicy cola and jalapeño-glazed chicken wing recipe
Adapted from Bon Appetit Y'All: Recipes and Stories from Three Generations of Southern Cooking
Yields about 12 wings
- 1 cup cola
- Juice of 2 limes
- 1-1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
- 4 jalapeños, minced
- 2 pounds chicken wings (about 12), patted dry with paper towel
- Salt and pepper
- In a saucepan, combine the cola, lime juice, brown sugar and jalapeños. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the sauce is thick and syrupy, about 30 minutes.
- While the sauce is simmering, preheat the broiler with a rack approximately 4 inches below the heating element. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place an ovenproof wire rack on top of the foil.
- Place the chicken wings in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Pour about half of the glaze over the wings and toss to coat.
- Place the glazed wings on the wire rack and broil for approximately 10 minutes on each side, brushing each side twice with the reserved glaze during cooking.
- Transfer to a platter and serve immediately.
