Ingredients

  • 2 lb. chicken wings
  • 3 tbsp arrowroot starch
  • Salt and pepper

for the sauce:

  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 3/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 3 tbsp sriracha or more to taste
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp arrowroot starch
  • green onion for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Pour arrowroot, salt and pepper into a ziploc bag, then add the chicken and shake so that chicken is coated. Place chicken directly onto a foil-lined baking sheet.
  • Spray wings with nonstick spray, then bake chicken for approximately 30 minutes, flipping half way through, until chicken is cooked all the way.
  • While the chicken is in the oven, make the sauce: mince garlic then set aside. Whisk coconut aminos, sriracha, sugar, and arrowroot together in a bowl and set aside.
  • Once chicken is almost done baking, add garlic and 1 tsp oil to a large, deep skillet and sauté for 2 minutes over medium heat. Then, pour the sauce into the skillet and reduce heat to low, stirring occasionally.
  • Once chicken is done, remove it from the oven and place chicken directly into the skillet with the sauce, using a spatula or wooden spoon to coat chicken in the sauce.
  • Place chicken directly onto a plate and serve it with your favorite dipping sauce (I used a store bought sriracha dipping sauce!) and sprinkle with green onions.

Notes

*Traditional sriracha isn't Paleo, so try to find an alternative sriracha (I found some at Whole Foods and I know you can order some online too if you want to keep this recipe strictly Paleo)
*Calories are an estimation and are per wing 
*Serving size is an estimation -- 2 lb of wings will be around 20 wings, but it's not an exact number
