Honey-Garlic Chicken Wings
February 8, 2012 in Categories: Main Dishes, Meat and Poultry by ThePaleoMom
These are ridiculously delicious wings and great for anyone avoiding nightshades. If you cook them on the barbecue (which is the way we like them!), they end up as a “dry” wing (they are still moist and tasty though!). You can also cook them in the marinade in the oven for a sticky, gooey wing (but these will also have more sugar this way). They are delicious either way!
3 lbs chicken wings, separated
1/3 cup Honey
¼ cup Lemon Juice
¼ cup water
2 Tbsp Coconut Aminos or Reduced Sodium Tamari Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
2 tsp Garlic Powder
¾ tsp Ground Ginger
1. Heat honey, lemon juice, water, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic and ginger in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Turn heat down to low once it starts to simmer and let simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
2. Pour marinade over chicken wings (I like to do this in a large ziplock bag but you could do this in a bowl or baking dish too). Let marinade in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (the more the better).
3. Barbecue chicken wings until cooked, turning once (something like 20 minutes total, depending on how hot your barbecue is). Alternatively, place in a greased baking dish (or line with foil) and bake at 400F for 1 hour, turning once. Enjoy!
