PALEO, RECIPIES, WHOLE30 Super. Duper. Bowl. Wings. February 4, 2018

It’s Super Bowl Sunday!  Typically we’d be ordering pizza or wings from whichever restaurant would deliver to us.  Not this year!  Just coming off the January Whole30 (and still going), I wanted to have wings without the pounds of salt and sauce, with God knows what added.  There’s no reason to eat the added junk if I don’t have to.  I’ve decided to make two versions of wings to keep things interesting.  There’s a classic buffalo, with a little sweet from pineapple.  And a super fresh, lime, jalepeno wing.  We’re having the fingerling potatoes with garlic aioli that I made during the Whole30 as well.  I may not have a dog in the fight on the game, but I’m really excited for dinner tonight!

 

RECIPES

[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”10″ gal_title=”super bowl wings”]

Classic Buffalo Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lbs of mixed chicken wings/drums
  • 1/2 cup of Tessemae’s Mild or Hot Buffalo Sauce (whatever you prefer)
  • 1/4 cup pineapple chunks with juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Lime Jalapeno Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lbs of mixed chicken wings/drums
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 tbs coconut aminos
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • cayenne pepper (to your taste)
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • zest and juice of one lime
  • salt and pepper to taste

Classic Buffalo Instructions:

Create a marinade of buffalo sauce and pineapple chunks and juice.  Hint – reserve some of the marinade for finishing sauce after they’re cooked.  Place chicken pieces in ziploc bag or bowl (covered) with marinade and store in refrigerator for NO LESS than one hour.

Lime Jalapeno Instructions:

Place all ingredients in a food processor, blender, Vitamix (whatever you have to blend) and blend.  Hint – reserve some of the marinade for finishing sauce after they’re cooked.  Place chicken pieces in ziploc bag or bowl (covered) with marinade and store in the refrigerator for NO LESS than one hour.

Preheat oven to 400˚.  After the chicken has marinated, place on a lined baking sheet, on a wire rack.  After the chicken is placed, I like to spoon a little extra sauce on top for fun.  Cook chicken for 20 minutes, then flip and cook for an additional 20 minutes.  If you’d like a little more crust, Turn broiler on HI, and hang out for 5-10 minutes.  No seriously, the boiler can burn things quickly.

  Once the wings are done, add some of your reserve and enjoy!
