Ingredients for the Paleo Chicken Wings

2-3 lbs. of chicken wings and drumettes
2 tbsp of grass-fed butter melted
Salt
Your chosen sauce (see sauce recipes below)

Directions for Game Day Paleo Chicken Wings

1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees(F). Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

2. Boil your chicken wings and drumettes for 7 to 8 minutes. (This is the secret… so don’t skip this!). Remove the chicken wins/drumettes and let them drip dry on a wire rack.

3. Take a large baking sheet and line it with parchment paper. Give the parchment paper a quick spray or brush of olive oil to prevent sticking.

4. Your wings should be fairly dry by now. But you’ll want to go ahead and dry them further by patting them down with a paper towel.

5. Place your wings on the baking sheet and don’t let them touch.

6. You’ll want to melt your butter and add a couple dashes of salt. Lightly brush the melted butter and salt over the wings.

7. Place into the oven and bake them for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes you’ll want to flip your chicken wings and cook them for an additional 10 minutes.

8. Take them out of the oven and toss them in a large mixing bowl with your chosen sauce. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Choose your sauce below or make a batch of each flavor. Both of these chicken wing sauces are tested and delicious.

Classic Buffalo Sauce

Ingredients

1/2 cup of Franks Red Hot Sauce or your preferred hot sauce
1/4 cup of grass-fed butter
1 tsp of paprika
2 tsp of organic apple cider vinegar

Directions

Melt the butter over medium heat and mix in all the other ingredients. Turn the heat to low and simmer until the wings are ready to be tossed in the sauce.

Smoked Hickory Sauce

Ingredients

1/4 cup of grass-fed butter
2 tsp of organic apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp of Long’s Peak Pork Chop Spice*

*Couple of notes about the spice blend. First, I know it says “pork chop” in the name but trust me that it tastes great on wings. It even says to use it for chicken wings right on the bottle. Second, you can go right here and see all the individual spices that make up the rub. You can try to recreate it or just order a small bag to try it out. I have no affiliation with Savory Spice Shop.

Directions

Once again… Melt the butter over medium heat and mix in all the other ingredients. Turn the heat to low and simmer until the wings are ready to be tossed in the sauce.

The chicken wings that are shown in the picture were made with the smoked hickory sauce. They were delicious! No matter who you cheer for on Thursday night, Sunday afternoon or Monday night, these wings will be a hit!
