Here’s how to make your wings perfectly crisp on the outside and moist on the inside – just as they should be. This will be your go-to cheat day recipe for those summer days, but don’t worry, it’s still high in protein!
- 4 tbsp. maple syrup
- 1 lime (zest and juice)
- 3 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil (melted)
- 2 tbsp. barbecue sauce
- 1 tbsp. hot pepper sauce
- 1kg chicken wings
#1 Preheat oven to 350°F or 320°C for fan-assisted.
#2 In a bowl, mix together the garlic, maple, lime zest and half the juice, coconut oil, pepper sauce and barbecue sauce.
#3 Coat the chicken wings and set aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes (for best taste, leave to marinade overnight).
#3 Once marinated, pick the wings out of the sauce and spread them out onto a baking tray (don’t throw the sauce away!).
#4 Bake for 25 minutes, drain, then add the remaining marinade and bake for a further 20 minutes.
#5 Increase the temperature by 60°F, spoon the remaining marinade over the wings and bake for a further 15 minutes.
#6 Remove from the oven, squeeze the remaining lime juice over the wings and serve hot!
