ready in:35 min
  • 3lbs Chicken wings (local, pastured if possible!)
  • Drizzle of Olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1/4 c pure Maple syrup
  • 1/3 c Blackberry jam/preserves with no added sugar
  • 2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Ghee (can sub grass-fed butter)
  • 3 tbsp Frank’s Red Hot or other Cayenne hot sauce (check ingredient labels!)
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Aminos
  • Juice from 1/2 Lemon
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  • While pre-heating, boil water in a large, deep pan to par-boil the wings
  • Once boiling add the wings and boil for 8 minutes
  • Remove from water and let drip dry for a few minutes before drying well with a paper towel
  • Place wings on a foil or parchment lined baking sheet and drizzle olive oil and season with salt and pepper
  • Bake for 20 minutes (longer if your wings are quite large)
  • While baking add sauce ingredients to a medium saucepan and allow to melt, then reduce to low and simmer while the wings cook, stirring occasionally
  • Remove wings from the oven and flip, cook for another 5 minutes (again, add time if necessary)
  • Place wings in a large bowl and pour the sauce over, toss to coat well
  • I poured the remaining sauce over the wings before eating, it was a great choice
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
