Ingredients

For the Chicken:

  • 1.5 lbs chicken wing drumettes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp oil

For the Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup natural smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar or honey
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp gluten-free tamari sauce you can use soy sauce if not gluten-free
  • 4-5 tbsp water start with 4 and see if you need another
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cups peanuts chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Toss wings in oil and place on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 30-35 minutes, flipping half way through.
  • In the meantime, make sauce. In a small pot over medium heat, combine peanut butter, honey/brown sugar, lemon juice, tamari sauce, water, garlic, ginger and cayenne pepper and whisk together. Bring to a boil and then lower to simmer. Cook for 2-3 minutes and stir. Adjust thickness by adding more water if needed. Reduce heat to low until wings are ready.
  • Once wings have finished cooking through in the oven, turn the oven to broil. Broil the wings for 5-7 minutes, watching carefully, until they are crispy.
  • Remove from the oven, add wings to a large bowl and pour peanut butter sauce over the wings. Toss until wings are completed covered.
  • Plate wings, top with chopped peanuts, and serve.
