Cola Chicken Wings is hugely popular in Hong Kong. You can easily find them in Cha Chaan Teng 港式茶餐廳 (Hong Kong style cafes), at parties, or family dinners at home. Since it’s super easy to make with a few simple ingredients, it’s often one of the first dishes new home cooks learn to make.

So this is one of our must-make Pressure Cooker Chicken Wings Recipes! The chicken wings are unbelievably moist, fall-off-the-bone tender, and full of flavors.

You’ll be surprised by the unique taste. Don’t expect it to taste like coke though, as it’s more of a savory dish. It tastes somewhat similar to soy sauce chicken wings, yet it’s slightly sweet with a tint of sourness from the coke. It’s very easy to eat. The coke not only adds a bit of flavor to the wings, but it tenderizes the meat.

Make these if you’re looking for something quick & easy, flavorful, and kid-friendly. These are great for those busy hectic weeknights or make a big batch for parties and gatherings. Enjoy~

Cuisine: Chinese
Serving: 2 - 4
Ingredients
  • 1 ½ pound (680g) chicken wings
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 stalk green onion, cut 2 inches long
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, sliced
  • ⅔ cup + 1 tablespoon (200 ml) regular coca cola
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce (not low sodium soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
Instructions
  1. Heat Up the Pressure Cooker: Heat up your pressure cooker (Instant Pot: press Sauté button). Make sure your pot is as hot as it can be when you place the ingredients into the pot (Instant Pot: wait until the indicator says HOT).
  2. Sauté the Garlic, Ginger, and Green Onion: Pour in 1 tablespoon of peanut oil into the pressure cooker. Ensure to coat the oil over the whole bottom of the pot. Add the crushed garlic, sliced ginger and green onions into the pot, then stir for roughly a minute until fragrant.
  3. Sauté the Chicken Wings: Add the chicken wings into the pot and stir fry them together with the garlic, ginger slices and green onions for roughly one to two minutes.
  4. Deglaze the Pot: When the edges of the chicken skin starts to brown, pour in the coca cola and fully deglaze the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon. Add in 2 tablespoons of light soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of dark soy sauce, and 1 tablespoon of Chinese rice wine. Mix well.
  5. Pressure Cook the Chicken Wings: Close lid and pressure cook at High Pressure for 5 minutes (Electric or Stovetop pressure cookers). Turn off the heat and fully Natural Release (roughly 10 minutes).
  6. Taste and Season: Open the lid carefully and taste one of the chicken wings and the cola sauce (It shouldn’t taste like coca cola). Reduce and season the sauce with more salt if desired.

  1. Hello, at the end of the step you said turn off the heat and allow to natural release. By turning it off , pressing the “keep warm/cAncel” button, wouldn’t that turn off the pressure cooker? When I pressed that, the “off” sign showed up and I wasn’t sure if it was going to natural release so I turned it back on again.
    Or should I have not pressed anything once pressure is done?

    Thanks

    1. Hi Colina,

      thank you for your question 🙂

      Both ways will work for the Instant Pot. You can turn it off or keep it on keep warm mode.

      Take care & have a great week!

    1. Hi Janie,

  3. Hi,

    I am making this tonight and I just realized that I completely forgot to buy the Chinese Rice Wine at my visit to the store. Is there any ingredient I can substitute it with? Will it taste bad if I leave this ingredient out?

    thank you for your help!

  4. I can’t wait to make this for a pack of kids that are coming over this Friday! Can I double or triple the recipe safely in the in Instant Pot? If I can, would you recommend just doing x2 or x3 of the recipe exactly?

    1. Hi May,
      I am so sorry for the late reply. The comment somehow went into the spam folder.

      Yes, this recipe can be doubled or tripled in the Instant Pot as long as it doesn’t get past 3/4 of the inner pot’s capacity.

      I would recommend doubling and tripling the recipe exactly. The cooking time will stay at 5 minutes + natural release 🙂

      Have fun cooking!
      Jacky
