14 Mar maple glazed chicken wings
This is super simple “almost-paleo” weekend fare at its finest.
These yummy baked chicken wings are usually enjoyed at our place while sitting on the couch, in front of the TV, with a fair few serviettes at the ready.
Warning: Do not attempt to eat these with a knife and fork – that’s nowhere near as much fun as using your fingers!
1 kg free range chicken wings
2 tbsp good quality macadamia oil (I use Brookfarm)
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp tamari*
1 tbsp brown rice vinegar
1/2 tsp cayenne
2 tbsp sesame seeds (optional)
Let’s do this!
Combine all of your ingredients in a medium sized bowl and toss until chicken is thoroughly coated.
Cover and pop into the fridge to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 200°C
Spread your chicken wings out on an oven tray and bake for 30 minutes or until cooked through, with darkened areas on the wing tips.
Serve with cauliflower “rice,” green salad or sweet potato chips as a main meal, or just on their own for a healthy snack!
* Please note – if you wish to make this dish 100% paleo, swap the tamari (which contains soy) for coconut amino sauce, which you will find at health food stores.
