Ingredients

For the Chicken Wings:

  • 2 lbs chicken wings already cut into drumettes and wingettes
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or other high heat oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions for serving

For the Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup tamari sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water

Instructions

For the Chicken Wings:

  • Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  • In a large bowl, add chicken wings and avocado oil. Toss chicken wings until completely covered in the avocado oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder and toss to combine. 
  • Place in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake at 400F for 40-45 minutes, flipping half way through, or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165F. 
  • Change the oven setting to broil. Broil for 5 minutes, until the skin is crispy. Remove from the oven. 
  • Add the chicken wings to a clean bowl and pour sauce (recipe below) over the chicken wings until covered. Place on a serving platter and sprinkle with chopped green onions. 

For the Sauce:

  • Make the sauce while the chicken wings are baking in the oven. 
  • In a small saucepan, combine honey, garlic, tamari, and sriracha. Heat over medium, stirring until the honey has dissolved into the sauce. 
  • Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. 
  • Mix the cornstarch and water in a small bowl, whisking until there are no more clumps and add mixture to the sauce, stirring until combined.
  • Turn the heat to medium-low, and stir until the sauce has thickened. Allow to cook an additional 5-10 minutes. 
  • Cool slightly until ready to toss with the chicken wings.
