I made Grilled Cherry Coke Chicken last week and my husband’s eyes got big and wide with delight. After a moment he asked “Please PLEASE can you make Cherry Coke Glazed Chicken Wings?!?!”

I mean, he did say “please”, plus he is the best husband ever…but really I made them because heck yeah, they sounded AMAZING!

And guess what, they were even better than we had hoped 🙂

We made them on Fourth of July and relaxed by the pool, and of course some day drinking was involved.

How to Make Cherry Coke Glazed Chicken Wings

To make the glaze you’ll add some ketchup, a can of Cherry Coke, brown sugar, worcestershire sauce, lime juice, kosher salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes to a saucepan.

ingredients for the glaze

At first it’s very thin, but it gets nice and thick after bubbling away on the stove for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Bring it to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium low.

Watch carefully as it comes to a boil, if it looks like it will bubble over just remove the saucepan from the heat for a moment.

I kept the seasoning for the wings simple since the glaze is big on flavor.

Toss with olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.

For cooking the wings you could certainly bake them, but we chose to smoke ours on the Traeger Grill.

For the oven, place the chicken wings on a lined baking sheet and put in a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes, flip them halfway through.

And brush with the glaze during the last half hour.

For the smoker, place them in your smoker set to 250 degrees for two and a half hours, flipping them halfway through.

We had a little help with the glazing part 🙂

He is really wanting to help with cooking more and more and we love it!

Once they are at 165 to 170 degrees you can take them off the smoker and dig in!

The sweet and spicy flavor of Cherry Coke Glazed Chicken Wings is outstanding
