WINGS! I get excited when I remember they’re a dinner option. Too often I forget, unless I’m thinking of what to make for the Super Bowl or some other big sportsing day. But why should we only eat them when there are really good commercials on TV? That’s silly. They’re cheap and delicious, and there are practically endless ways to prepare them.
Take this preparation, for example; They get crispy in the oven thanks to a blend that includes salt and tapioca starch, and then tossed in a super flavorful sauce that gets mixed together in about 45 seconds. (All credit goes to Predominantly Paleo for the tapioca starch idea) All in all, you’re looking at about 45 minutes total time with only 5 of that being active. So you’ll have more than enough time to throw together a salad or slaw to serve them with.
prep time: 5 minutes
cook time: 45 minutes
for the wings
2 pounds wings, separated into drumettes and wingettes (save the tips for broth!)
1 rounded teaspoon salt
1 rounded teaspoon tapioca starch
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/8 teaspoon paprika
for the sauce
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon coconut aminos
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon lime zest (about 1/2 lime), plus more for garnish
1 tablespoon lime juice (about 1/2 lime)
1/2 teaspoon fish sauce
1/2 teaspoon chili paste
- Preheat the oven to 450. Line a metal rack in a rimmed baking sheet.
- In a small bowl, combine the salt, tapioca, ground ginger, coriander and paprika. Toss the wings in a ziploc bag and add the salt mixture. Close the bag and give it a good shake to coat.
- Arrange the wings on the rack, spacing them out as much as possible. Roast for 20 minutes and then flip and roast for another 20.
- Meanwhile, to make the sauce, combine all of the sauce ingredients except for the additional lime zest in a large bowl.
- Once the chicken is cooked through, add to the bowl with the sauce and toss to combine. Place them back on the rack. (Use your hands or tongs to pull them out of the bowl, as opposed to dumping the extra sauce onto the pan- it will just burn) Roast for another 5 minutes.
- Transfer to a platter to serve, and pour any remaining sauce over them. Garnish with additional lime zest.
