Description

Chicken wings marinated in spicy chili garlic sauce and coconut aminos. Then cooked in the air fryer and served with marinated scallions. Keto and Whole30 friendly.


Scale

Ingredients

1/2 tsp. Sesame seeds

1 tsp. sesame oil

2 tbsp. avocado oil

3 tbsp. Coconut aminos

3 tbsp. Spicy Harissa sauce or chili garlic sauce 

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp grated ginger 

2 lbs. chicken wings 

MARINATED SCALLIONS:

2 scallions (finely chopped)

2 garlic cloves, finely minced 

2 tsp. grated ginger

2 tsp. lime juice

1 tsp. coconut aminos

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes


Instructions

First, whisk together the sesame seeds, sesame oil, avocado oil, coconut aminos, harissa, salt and ginger in a large mixing bowl. Add the chicken and use your hands to toss it around to make sure it’s well coated with the marinade. Cover the bowl and transfer it to the fridge. Let the chicken marinate for 4 hours to overnight. 

Now, spray your air fryer basket with some avocado oil spray (or just rub some avocado oil on the bottom of the basket). Remove the chicken wings directly from the marinade and place them in the air fryer basket about 1/2 an inch apart in a single layer. Spray the wings with a little more avocado oil spray. Set the air fryer to “wings or chicken” at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Let the wings cook for 10 minutes, then flip them and continue to cook for the remaining 10 minutes. 

*You may need to cook them in 2 batches if your air fryer isn’t large enough to cook the wings in a single layer.

While the second batch of wings cook, stir all the ingredients needed for the marinated scallions together and set them aside. 

Remove the wings from the air fryer and scatter the marinated scallions on top of the wings. Serve immediately and enjoy! 



Notes

IN THE OVEN:

Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Place a cooling rack on a large baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Arrange the chicken wings on the cooling rack in a single layer. Bake the chicken for 35-40 minutes or until it’s crispy and cooked through (flip the wings half way through the cooking time). Remove the chicken from the oven, scatter the marinated scallions on top and serve immediately. 

ON THE GRILL:

Preheat your outdoor grill to medium heat. Cook the wings on the preheated grill, turning occasionally, until the chicken is browned and no longer pink, about 20-25 minutes. Remove the chicken from the grill and scatter the marinated scallions on top. Serve immediately.
