My Crispy Chicken Wings !

Recently, I fell in love with watching (American) football.

You might ask – Duh, what’s not to like ?!?

Well, this is all kind of new to me as a girl who grew up in Taiwan. I went from not getting the fun of football to it becoming one of my top go-to entertainment solutions. I can’t wait for super bowl season so I can watch the games, enjoy the halftime show (Beyoncé please!) while eating my crispy chicken wings !

This is my first Paleo and Whole30 friendly crispy chicken wings.

These wings are a little bit different than most of the recipes online. Instead of dashing the wings with dry seasonings and coating with glossy sauce after baking, I opt for marinating the wings first then baking them to crispy golden brown.

To pair with these finger licking crispy chicken wings, I decided to go with a slightly spicy and tangy dipping sauce that’s lighter than sriracha, easier to make, and insanely addictive.

The dipping sauce will also go well with other chicken recipes like baked chicken fingers or oven roasted chicken. The sauce is meant to be a bit runny so if you like it thick, add a teaspoon of arrowroot powder or sweet potato powder to thicken it.

So my friends, be sure to watch and share the 1-minute video below on how to make Crispy Chicken Wings and next time when you hang out with friends (and watch football), you’ll have a delicious and healthy plate of crispy chicken wings to impress everyone !

  • 1 ½ lbs chicken wings
  • White sesame seeds optional
Marinade group A:
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 thumb size fresh ginger
  • 1 red fresno chili pepper remove seeds
  • 1 large shallot
  • Half pear
Marinade group B:
  • cup coconut aminos
  • 2 - 2 ½ tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • Half lime juice
  • 1 tsp white pepper
Chili dipping sauce (blend everything together in a food processor/blender):
  • Half roasted red bell pepper
  • 1 red fresno chili pepper remove seeds
  • 2 small cloves garlic
  • 1 inch fresh ginger
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2-3 tbsp chicken broth
  • ½ tsp salt
  1. Pat dry chicken wings. Blend “Marinade Group A” in a food processor until smooth. Pour the mixture with “Marinade Group B” over chicken wings. Coat the marinade evenly over the wings and store in the fridge overnight to absorb the flavor.
  2. Preheat oven to 420/430 F. Drip off the marinade. Place wings on a baking rack with a large sheet pan underneath.
  3. Bake 1st side for 20 mins. Flip and bake for another 20 mins. Turn oven to broil for 2 additional minutes to make the skin crispy.
  4. Sprinkle with sesame seeds (optional). Serve hot with my homemade chili dipping sauce.
Recipe Notes

The dipping sauce is meant to be a bit runny so if you like it thick, add a teaspoon of arrowroot powder or sweet potato powder to thicken it.
