Honey-mustard sauce is a favorite for a reason; try it on chicken wings here with just a little bit of chili sauce if you like them extra-spicy. The honey is optional in a lot of Paleo recipes, but in this one it really is necessary: without it, the Dijon is just too bitter. If you really can’t handle even the small amount of sugar from the honey in the sauce, you’d probably be better-off finding another recipe for your chicken wings.
If you can manage ¼ cup of honey, though, this recipe is a very tasty Paleo treat, and so easy to make. Cook the wings of the most of the way through without the sauce, and then broil them for just a few minutes with it on, to get the sauce warm and crisp them up a bit.
This would be a great party or potluck dish: chicken wings are relatively cheap, so you won’t break the bank bringing some for everyone, and who doesn’t love a good honey-mustard sauce? Or just make it for yourself, and enjoy a healthy take on a beloved classic.
