Rum and Coke Wings

Gord make Rum and Coke Wings for supper tonight.

The ingredients:

3 lbs chicken wings
2-3 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp chili powder (he used cayenne instead)
1 tsp kosher salt (he used sea salt)
1 tsp cracked black pepper
1 cup cola
1/2 cup dark rum
4 Tbsp Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
2 Tbsp honey
4-8 Tbsp butter

First up he put the wings in a bowl and drizzled the olive oil over them and gave them a good toss to make sure they were all coated. Then he added the cayenne, salt and pepper and again mixed them all up well.

After preheating the oven to 450F, he put them in for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, he gave them all a flip.

Next he melted the butter/margarine in the pot and then stirred in everything else.  He brought it bring to a boil and then reduced it to medium high. You want the sauce to thicken so leave it for about 30 minutes. Next time he would use butter as the light margarine is too water-based and the sauce did not thicken well.

After 30 minutes, he took the wings out ... they looked good enough to eat then!

He placed the wings in a bowl and poured the sauce on them. 

Then he put new parchment paper on the tray, placed the wings back onto the tray and spooned the remaining sauce over top.

Then back in the oven for another 5-6 minutes.

 Supper is served!

They were delicious!  The initial taste is sweet and then the heat kicks in.  The only suggestion I'd make is bake them on a rack on the tray rather than right on the tray.

I'd be okay if Gord made them again!
