I’m a huge fan of Whole 30 and definitely a fan of Whole 30 Hot Wings!. When I tell people what Whole 30 is, most people ask me first, what DO you eat?? And my answer is…all the good stuff. It’s a way of taking a look at how food affects you…and more importantly, what’s in it. You can check out my list of 45 things I think you’ll need if you’re looking to give Whole 30 a try.
Eating this way has literally changed my life. I’m a food addict and have had a very unhealthy relationship with food since my childhood. But that’s another blog post. Today’s is all about one of my favorite meals on Whole 30…Hot Wings! For me, chicken wings need to be crispy (but not battered) and this recipe is perfect…full of flavor, spicy and most importantly, crispy!
It’s really hard to believe that something this delicious has nothing bad in it. This recipe does call for ghee. You can find ghee (clarified butter) in most markets, but it’s super easy to make your own at home. It’s definitely more affordable to make it at home too. Check out this video of how to make ghee at home.
The Best Whole 30 Hot Wings Ever
- 3 tsp Salt
- 3 tsp Black Pepper
- 3 tsp Garlic Powder
- 3 tbsp Olive Oil Extra Virgin
- 2 lbs Chicken Party Wings
- 2 cups Franks Red Hot
- 2 tbsp Ghee (Clarified Butter)
- 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
- Prep your chicken wings by opening them and placing in a large bowl to toss with olive oil. Lightly coat. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Lay the chicken wings out in a single layer and sprinkle salt, pepper and garlic powder on one side, then flip and do the other side as well.
- Bake for 30 minutes on one side then flip all pieces oven and return to over for an additional 30 minutes. *If crispier wings are desired, continue baking for an additional 5-7 minutes.
- While wings are baking, create hot wing sauce by combining Frank’s Red Hot, Apple Cider Vinegar and melted Ghee in a bowl.
- Remove wings from oven when finished baking and toss in the hot sauce to coat.
- Enjoy! (only one of my kids loves the hot sauce, the other two eat them plain or dip in ranch!)
