Chicken wings can be cooked, marinated and served up a million ways — for a few examples, see this recipe, this one and this one! These Thai-style chicken wings are coated in a marinade with a bit of Asian flair: coconut aminos, fish sauce, lemongrass and honey. They’re finished off with a quick broil to caramelize the sauce for a finger-licking sweet and sticky bite.
If you’re new to Paleo, you may be unfamiliar with coconut aminos and fish sauce. Coconut aminos are an excellent replacement for soy sauce in Asian dishes. Fish sauce is also frequently used in Asian dishes and gives a great umami taste. You can usually find both coconut aminos and fish sauce at your health food store, and you can definitely find them both online.
When you’re cooking the sauce, keep an eye on it to be sure it doesn’t overcook and burn. Instead, look for it to thicken, then remove from the heat. Serve this big batch of wings at a football party or any celebratory occasion!
