Wondering what to make for the weekend or a big game? Here are some badass Whle30 chicken wings that you are absolutely going to love! I have changed it up with some new ingredients, which are optional, so feel free to change them up with chili powder, or red pepper flakes…there are so many ways you can do these!
Whole30 Badass Chicken Wings
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- The juice of 2 limes
- 2 Tbsp smoked paprika
- 2 Tbsp of juice from fresh ginger
- 1 Tbsp of juice from fresh tumeric
- 2 dozen wings
- Kosher salt
- Chopped cilantro
- 6 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
- Aleppo pepper
In a medium bowl, whisk together olive oil and lime juice, then add paprika and stir until dissolved.
Shred and squeeze ginger and turmeric by hand, discard pulp and add juice to marinade.
Salt wings thoroughly on both sides. Place snugly in container with half the marinade then flip. Toss wings with your hands, then add the remainder of the marinade, sprinkle with cilantro, garlic and Aleppo pepper and toss again, making sure all of the wings are coated. Refrigerate covered overnight, if possible, otherwise, 1-2 hours will do.
Line a roasting pan or baking sheet (with a lip) with parchment paper and transfer the wings to the pan. Pour every last drop of marinade over them and cover with foil.
Bake at 375°F degrees for 25 minutes to coax out juices. Uncover, baste and cook for another 20 minutes.
Turn the heat up to 425°F – cook until brown and crispy, basting at least a couple of times with pan juices. If there is too much juice in the pan, pour some off and set aside to use for basting. Total cooking time is about 1 hour, when wings are a deep golden brown, they are ready, but if you like your wings crispy, add a little time.
