These chicken wings do not disappoint. Baked, not fried, these wings won't leave you in a food coma. And the paleo blueberry BBQ sauce is delicious, without all the added junk in your normal bottled sauce.
Blueberry BBQ Paleo Chicken Wings
Inspired by: The Paleo Kitchen
3 lbs Fresh Chicken Wings
1/2 TBSP Coconut Oil
1/2 Onion, diced
1 1/2 TBSP Mustard
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Salt
Juice of 1 Lemon
1 Cup Chicken Broth, low sodium
1/4 Cup Honey
1 6oz Can Tomato Paste
Pre-heat oven to 375.
Separate chicken wings -- this video is super helpful if you aren't sure how.
Line a baking sheet with tin foil, spray with cooking spray, and add chicken wings in one layer.
Season chicken wings with salt and pepper and bake at 375 for 40-45 minutes, carefully flipping once while cooking.
Meanwhile, melt coconut oil in a medium pot and saute onions until translucent (about 8 minutes)
Stir in mustard, vinegar, cinnamon, and salt.
Add lemon juice, chicken broth, honey, and tomato paste and stir together until smooth.
Add blueberries and remove from heat.
Pour into blender and blend until smooth.
Put sauce back over medium low heat, cover slightly with lid (it splatters!) and allow to simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove chicken wings from oven and toss with BBQ sauce.
Place back in the oven and bake at 375 for for 6-8 minutes.
