Time to get your gameday on with these sweet and savory chicken wings. Because who doesn’t love chicken wings?! Your best bet for the best wings starts with quality, fresh ingredients. I used pasture-raised chicken wings, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and flavorful, antioxidant-rich herbs. Just because you’re cheering for your favorite team, doesn’t mean that health and nutrition should fall to the wayside. Especially when you can have both a delicious snack and a healthy snack, all in one!

These paleo chicken wings also go great with a side of baked sweet potato fries!

Now, let’s get to the good stuff. 

Here’s what you need:

  • 16 wings (from pasture-raised chicken)
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 t ghee + 2 t coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup orange juice from 1-2 oranges (skip the sugary bottled OJ)
  • Zest of half an orange
  • 1/4 cup bone broth
  • 2 T lime juice
  • 1/4 t cumin
  • 1/2 t coriander
  • 1/2 t oregano
  • Dash of cayenne (optional, for a little kick)
  • Chopped parsley

RECIPE: Citrus Glazed Chicken Wings | Paleo, Whole30 | by Candace Kennedy

Here’s what you do:

  1. Use paper towels to pat down your chicken wings to remove any excess moisture.
  2. Generously season the chicken wings with salt and pepper. 
  3. Add the ghee and coconut oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Once the pan is good and hot, brown the chicken wings in batches (about 4 minutes on each side).
  5. Meanwhile, combine the orange juice, bone broth, lime juice and seasoning in a small bowl. 
  6. When you’re finished browning the chicken, return all of the chicken wings to the skillet. Add the orange juice mixture. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat, cover the skillet and simmer for 20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. 
  7. When the chicken is cooked, remove it from the pan, leaving the liquid in the hot skillet (this will be your citrus glaze. Continue cooking the liquid over medium heat, stirring often, until the liquid thickens.
  8. Coat the chicken wings with the citrus glaze. Serve extra glaze on the side for dipping!
