  • 1.2l cola
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 6 cracked allspice berries
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 200ml cola
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 6 tbsp ketchup

Method

  1. Put the chicken wings in a pan and cover with 1 litre cola. Add the bay leaves and allspice berries. Cover and gently simmer for 20 mins. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Drain the wings and pat dry. Transfer to a roasting tin and toss with the oil, then cook for 20 mins.

Paint the glaze over the chicken and return to the oven for another 15-20 mins, brushing with more glaze at 5 min intervals.
