Orange soda wings are a great example of how you should never think that something sounds weird and will taste even weirder. I thought that and I was wrong. I found these wings to be fantastic. The sauce is perfect. Think traditional Buffalo wing sauce, but with a bit of sweetness from honey, and a wonderful light hint of citrus. The soda cooks down and thickens, making sure that every drop sticks to the wings. Every bite is delicious. I was so pleasantly surprised!

I think the orange soda wings sauce would be great on something other than wings too. Grilled chicken breasts for sure. Grilled pork chops definitely. Smoked ribs too!

Make sure you use a good, quality and NOT DIET orange soda.

I store my leftover homemade sauces in squeeze bottles. If refrigerated, I set them out an hour before using so they come to room temperature. You don’t want to put cold sauce on hot wings!
