Paleo Hot Wings (OMG they’re good)!

After purchasing half a cow a month ago, we’ve been eating a lot of grass-fed beef. A LOT of beef. Not a bad thing. It just gets a little monotonous eventually. So in my search to continue to eat as clean as possible while also providing food that my family will not shun, I came across the following recipe from Fed and Fit. I’m always leery of how some of these Paleo recipes will turn out, but I have to say, these were probably some of the best wings I’ve ever had. There isn’t a ton of sauce to cover up the meat, but its also not a dry rub seasoning either. I intend to eat these weekly!

Paleo Buffalo Wings

Serves 4

Ingredients:

Baked chicken wings:

  1. 2 lbs chicken wings

  2. 1 t sea salt

  3. 1 t cracked black pepper

Paleo Buffalo Sauce:

  1. 3 T coconut oil

  2. 3 T rice vinegar (or other form of white vinegar)

  3. ½ t cayenne pepper

  4. ½ t hot paprika

  5. 1 t garlic powder [didn’t have this on hand, so I used garlic salt]

  6. 1 t onion powder

  7. 1 medium sized lemon juiced

  8. 1 t sea salt [I left this out because I used garlic salt instead of garlic powder]

Directions:

Baked chicken wings:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  • Wash the chicken wings and pat dry.

  • Sprinkle evenly with sea salt and cracked pepper.

  • Bake at 400 for 45 minutes (time will vary – start watching after 40 minutes and bake until they start to look brown).

Paleo Buffalo Sauce:

  • In a medium sized saucepan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat.

  • Add the cayenne, hot paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Stir until evenly combined.

  • Squeeze in the lemon and add the vinegar.

  • Take off heat and stir until evenly combined.

  • Set aside or pour into a sealable container for later use. [I put mine straight into a ziploc bag and coated the wings right away after coming out of the oven]

  • Store in the refrigerator. [I didn’t do this step]

  • Once the wings have cooled a little from the oven, put them in a gallon Ziploc bag and pour the buffalo sauce over. Seal the bag and shake for a good minute. This will evenly coat the wings. Pour into a bowl and serve!

Time: 1 hour

The great thing about this recipe is that the amount of time it takes for the wings to bake, gives you just enough time to cut up and bake/broil sweet potato fries or some other side!
