If you have followed me for a while, you know I am a chicken wing-making machine. It’s my thang. Well, not only is it mine but my husband legit requests wings every single weekend. I love wings because they are easy to bake and you can flavor them up in all sorts of ways! Just check out all of the wings on my site if you haven’t yet. There is a flavor for any mood! And these are always a hit.

    What’s the purpose of coconut aminos? Sorry if this is a dumb question. Just curious if it’s a flavor, texture or something else. Thanks.

    We quickly put these together, since we had everything for the recipe. Ummm….amazing! The sauce was fantastic and the meat fell off the bone (cooked for a little over an hour) and were slightly crispy. Once again, Alex, your recipe did not fail. ❤️

    I made these wings this past weekend to take to a party so that I’d have something Whole30 compliant to munch on. I had SO MANY people asking me for the recipe & they were shocked at how easy it was and how simple the ingredients were. Two huge thumbs up!!
