Sticky Coke Wings and Mini Chicken & Waffles

We all know the HomeBowl is the most anticipated football game of the year. So this year I’m going big, to score big with Coca-Cola & NABISCO to create some killer recipes. Because let’s face it, next to the game, the food is what makes the party!

Today, I’m sharing little bites, because if you know me, then you should know I would happily give up utensils for finger foods. That said, I also like serving finger foods for gatherings like this because it keeps everyone moving and interacting around the food table. So when you create that food table, make sure it’s pulled away from the wall and can be entered from every side. This will keep the movement of food flowing and it encourages people to hover, hang and chat!

As for what I’ll be serving, here are two new ones I’ll be adding to my rotation: (1) Sticky Coke Wings – think sweet and savory with a little heat. (2) Chicken and Waffles Bites – everyone’s favorite miniaturized to continue with the finger food theme.

Sticky Coke Wings

Yield: Makes 40 wings


  • 5 pounds chicken wings, tips removed, drumettes and flats separated
  • 1 can Coca-Cola
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon paprika


Heat oven to 400°F. Line two large baking sheets with a wire rack. Divide wings between prepared racks and spread out in a single layer.

Bake until wings are cooked through and skin is crispy, about about 45-50 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer wings to a plate. Prepare baking sheets once more by lining both baking sheets with foil and wire rack on top; set aside to prepare sauce.

Place remaining ingredients in a large saucepan over medium high heat and bring to a boil, lower heat and let simmer until slightly reduced and thick, about  5-7 minutes. Toss wings in sauce. Evenly divide and place wings in a single layer on rack. Bake until glaze is glossy and lightly cartelized, about 8-10 minutes.

Mini Chicken and Waffles

Makes 1 dozen bites

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup crushed RITZ Crackers
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 large eggs, separated, room temperature
  • 1 cup sour cream, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup water
  • Fried chicken (your preferred recipe)
  • pickles

To make waffles: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, crushed Ritz crackers, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside. In a second bowl, whisk in egg yolks, sour cream, vanilla, butter and 1/3 cup water. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and whisk until smooth; set aside.

In a separate bowl, using a hand-held mixer, beat egg whites to stiff peaks. Gently fold egg whites into batter.

Spray waffle iron with vegetable spray and heat until very hot. Working in batches, cook waffles until golden brown and crisp.

Assembly: Layer waffles with chicken and sprinkle with parsley, finished with a slice of pickle.
