Cola Hot Wings Recipe

These delectable wings are so easy to make, and they offer year-round versatility, from summer cookouts to autumn tailgates. My husband likes them so much he'll stand out in the snow to grill them! —Lisa Linville, Randolph, Nebraska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Grill: 40 min. YIELD:30 servings


  • 3 pounds chicken wings
  • 1 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 1 can (12 ounces) cola
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Blue cheese salad dressing


  • 1. Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tip sections. In a small bowl, combine hot sauce, cola, soy sauce, cayenne and pepper.
  • 2. Prepare grill for indirect heat, using a drip pan. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly. Grill chicken wings, covered, over indirect medium heat 10 minutes. Grill 30-40 minutes longer, turning occasionally and basting frequently with sauce until wings are nicely glazed. Serve with salad dressing. Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.
