4 Mar 12 (Sun) - Coca-cola Chicken Wings

The Happycall Pan adventure continued today and the dish I cooked was coca-cola chicken wings, a recipe from a Munch Ministry member. Of course I also did other creative stuff such as cooking the rice using the water from boiling the purple carrot and baking my usual vanilla cupcake recipe using the Happycall Pan.

The results? The coca-cola chicken wings were yummy especially when drizzled with some lemon juice. The rice was dyed a deep purple color but was a bit too soft coz I overestimated the amount of water used. As for the cakes, they were not very successful though the top portions were still edible.

I think there are a few factors that contributed to the failure:
>  I didn't mix the ingredients using an electic mixer hence maybe not enough air incorporated
>  I didn't use any moulds during the baking hence some of the mixture flowed out of the paper cases
>  I overestimated the time for baking hence the burnt bottom

From this...

... to this.


8 pieces mid-joint chicken wings
200ml regular coke
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp light soya sauce
1/2 tsp dark soya sauce
lemon juice

1.  Marinate the chicken wings with olive oil, light soya sauce and dark soya sauce for 15 mins or longer
2.  Preheat Happycall pan for 1 min on low heat then brown the chicken wings on both sides
3.  Add coca-cola and leftover marinade sauce into the pan
4.  Cover but do not lock the pan and let it simmer for 25mins on low heat or until the sauce is reduced to a thick and sticky syrup
5.  Turn the chicken wings occasionally so that both sides are well coated with the sauce
6.  Turn off the heat, arrange the chicken wings on a plate, drizzle with some lemon sauce and serve
