Many people go out to eat when they are craving wings, but this recipe will have you staying in. The problem with most restaurant quality chicken wings is that they contain breading or added sugars.

Our recipe calls for a range of spices that will make your chicken amazingly delicious without the carbs. We recommend investing in a pack of high-quality chicken wings. Look for a brand that is organic and antibiotic-free.

Chicken wings contain dark meat, which is higher in fat than white meat. It tends to be juicier and more flavorful.  They are usually served with a sugary dipping sauce, but we have a fix for that, too.

Our sauce contains coconut aminos and hot sauce in place of refined sugar. We also use ginger, lemon juice, and sesame oil, which contain anti-inflammatory components to fight free radical damage. 

Additionally, the healthy fats in the sesame oil help you absorb the antioxidant nutrients in the spices. It’s a nutritionally-balanced sauce that you can use as a healthy dip for all of your favorite foods.

We love using spices to cook with because they flavor your food without any (or very few) calories. They are known to have disease-preventing and health-promoting properties. 

Spices are primarily made of essential oils, phytochemicals, antioxidants, vitamins, and phytosterols. Research shows that spices may help protect against cancer, tumors, high cholesterol, and blood sugar problems. They also help boost brain health and mood (1).

This recipe calls for a bit of erythritol, but you can omit this if you’re sensitive to sweeteners. The lemon or lime should provide all the sweetener you need! 

Serve these wings with a dipping sauce made with no-sugar-added mayo, hot sauce, and the juice from a lemon or lime. Add a few celery slices when serving to help cool off the spice and stay hydrated!

Let’s Do It!

Combine the spices and herbs in a bowl. Set aside.
