Finger Lickin’ Baked Chicken Wings {AIP/Paleo}

Who says you can’t have deliciously spicy baked chicken wings when you are on AIP?

After my recent trip to England, where spicy food is very prevalent, but no longer accessible to me due to the nightshades and seed based spices that I haven’t yet reintroduced, I had a hankering for some spice, and I had plenty of Chicken Wings in the freezer.  Therefore I decided to try and make a recipe that would match if not surpass KFC… yeah yeah I know I had my work cut out!  However there are many herbs and spices available that are AIP so I took three spices known for their anti inflammatory properties and crafted these delicious wings… I now believe I can fly!

So I have a funny story to tell about my association with Chicken Wings… when I first started started work in the City of London I would go out and socialize with my friends after work and take the train home 10 stops to my destination…. well after a long day at work, no dinner and few drinks I would often fall asleep and miss my stop.  So one day I was at the Kentucky Fried Chicken Fast Food Restaurant close to the station and I saw that they did 10 Hot Wings and I devised a plan that I would eat ONE Wing per station to keep me awake… need I tell you I often woke up with 4 or 5 left in the box, having missed my station but at least I knew where in the journey I had fallen asleep LOL!

Oh reminiscing about Fast Food and Booze one may be tempted to say “Oh those were the days” but I know so much better now and know that the choices in food and beverages now really makes a huge difference in my health… but that doesn’t stop me thinking about those delicious chicken wings!

Read on and make your own!

Instructions
  1. Preheat the Oven to 400°F /200°c / Gas Mark 6
  2. Combine all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix until all of the ingredients have blended
  3. In another bowl whisk to combine the Melted Coconut Oil and Lemon Juice
  4. Take a chicken wing and dip it in the Coconut Oil & Lemon Mix, turning if necessary to ensure an even dip. Immediately press the wing into the dry rub mixture. (coconut oil will harden upon contact with cold items to be fast) Let the chicken sit in the dry rub for a few minutes and then remove to a rack. Repeat with each wing.
  5. Transfer the chicken to a non stick baking sheet
  6. Then, spray the chicken generously with the Olive Oil ( use an O. This will help it crisp up in the oven. Go ahead and give it another spray. It's got to have enough when there are no dry-looking patches of breading left.
  7. Bake the chicken for about 40 minutes, or until the breading has reached the desired golden-brown color.

Cosy Sweet Potato & Chicken Soup {AIP/Paleo}

My daughter was recently asking for Potato Soup, it was a favorite of hers at daycare but as she follows a modified AIP diet, with only recently reintroducing White Potatoes, I wasn’t comfortable with using nightshades, so I opted for White Sweet Potatoes which have a very similar taste and consistency to that of White Potatoes AND because I was wanting to win her over, I of course used BACON!

Honey Garlic Crispy Baked Chicken Wings {AIP/Paleo}

Nothing speaks finger food to me more than Chicken Wings, so when I think about a dish to take to a Pot Luck then its always top of my agenda.  In years gone by give me Buffalo Wings and a beer and I was a happy camper, but the Cayenne and the hot sauce which are nightshades aren’t AIP compliant so I went for my next favorite flavors ASIAN.

Crockpot Roast Lemon Chicken {AIP/Paleo}

This is another one of my quick paleo goto recipes when I’m working downtown or in back to back client meetings, and I know that I have no hope of getting a healthy meal on the table before my daughter is complaining of “I’m HUNGRY”

You can actually use a frozen chicken for this recipe but be sure toremove those giblets, if you want to have the Lemon infusion!

Roast Chicken was one of my favorite cosy dishes when I was a child growing up in England, it reminds me of family time, sitting around a Sunday dinner table, laughing and joking and being connected.

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders {AIP/Paleo}

Many people consider bacon to be an unhealthy food, and while I wouldn’t serve it at every meal, its a fan favorite with kids as a finger food and can be used to bring some kid hated foods into their diet.  I do recommend that you carefully read the labels on the bacon that you buy and choose a bacon with only the following ingredients “pork, water, sea salt,  sugar“, also many bacon suppliers now to label their bacon as “Gluten Free”.

I personally purchase my bacon from US Wellness Meats  as they offer a sugar free Whole 30 approved Bacon!

These Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders are a favorite in our house

  1. Rinse and Pat Dry the Chicken Tenders
  2. Stretch out the Bacon using the back of a knife to make it go further :)
  3. Sprinkle lightly the Garlic Salt onto the Chicken Tenders
  4. Wrap a couple of Spinach Leaves around the Chicken
