Need a party food idea, but don’t want to overindulge in useless calories? Then don’t!! Although chicken wings are delicious and commonly served at game watching get-togethers, they are normally fried (a big no-no) and full of sugar! We have created a “healthier” recipe to impress your guests with. Serve these finger licking good wings with a hearty side of raw veggies and be guilt-free tomorrow!
Tangy Baked Chicken Wings
2 lb hormone free buffalo cut Chicken Wings
1/2 cup low sodium Soy Sauce
Juice of 1 lemon; 1 lime
1 tbs freshly grated Ginger Root
2-3 Scallions; sliced into rings and separated into whites and greens
1 tbs Sesame Oil
2 tbs minced Garlic
1/4 cup Honey
1 tbs Chili Flakes
1 tbs Corn Starch
3 tsp Warm Water; more as needed
Freshly ground Black Pepper
Dash Sea Salt
Season chicken wings with salt and pepper. Bake in PAM sprayed dish for 25 minutes @ 350.
Whisk together corn starch and warm water in a small bowl until it becomes a thick, milky consistency resembling Elmer’s glue. Set aside.
Sauté white scallions and garlic in coconut oil for 30 seconds over medium heat.
Mix together soy sauce, honey, citrus juice, sesame oil, and chili flakes and add to sauté pan (with scallions/garlic). Bring to a light boil and reduce heat to simmer. Cook until slightly thick; approximately 3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
Once sauce reached room temperature, pour over pre-baked chicken wings and return to the oven for an additional 20 minutes; wings should be cooked through and sticky.
Garnish with green scallions and enjoy with your choice of chopped raw veggies (celery, carrots, cauliflower!) 🙂
