Okay guys, the first time I tried making these I kept thinking to myself that there was no way that these baked chicken wings were ever going live up to the classic fried preparation. But boy was I wrong! There is just something about the combination of the soy, honey and chili flakes that, when baked in the oven, creates a sticky and salty-sweet glaze that is just stick-to-your-ribs good. They are so good, in fact, that they'll blow your mind!

"Blow Your Mind" Baked Chicken Wings

Serves: 8 ; Prep Time: 2 hours
; Cook Time: 30 minutes

Preheat oven to 350 º F.

Season chicken wings with salt and pepper, and place in a rimmed baking dish.  Bake for 20 minutes and set aside.

In a small bowl, make a slurry with the cornstarch and a tablespoon of water, and set aside.

Heat 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a sauté pan over medium-low heat. Toss in the garlic, ginger and scallion whites, cooking for 30 seconds or until fragrant.

Stir in the soy sauce, honey, lime juice, sesame oil and chili flakes. Whisk in the cornstarch slurry and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 3-4 minutes until sauce has thickened slightly. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.

Pour sauce over wings and return to the oven for 20 minutes or until wings are cooked through and sauce is sticky.

Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.  Garnish with reserved scallion greens.

Diabetes-Friendly Chicken Burrito Bowl

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.


If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
