Mr. Swiss Paleo is an amazing cook. He’s actually much better at it than I am so, of course, I let him do a lot of the cooking. We might both starve if he didn’t :-) The other night he cooked up these incredible chicken wings based on a recipe he had seen in the food section of the New York Times. We both decided that next time (and there will be a next time), we need to double this recipe because it was just so good. Sadly, I had no left overs for my lunch the next day.

These are really easy to make, but you need to plan ahead to marinate the wings for several hours or overnight.

Amazing Chicken Wings

Ingredients

For the Marinade

  • 3 pounds (1.3 kg) chicken wings
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1.5 inch (thumb size) piece fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut aminos (or gluten free tamari sauce)
  • 1 Tablespoon fish sauce (Red Boat is the brand we use)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Marsala wine*
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For the Glaze

  • 1 cup Marsala wine
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut aminos (or gluten free tamari sauce)
  • 1 Tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 Teaspoon sesame seeds for garnish
  • Spring onion, chopped for garnish

*The sweetness in this recipe comes from the Marsala wine. If you need to make a substitution, the only other wine that would give you similar results would be Mirin which is a Japanese sweet rice wine.

Instructions

  1. Mix everything together for the marinade and toss in the chicken wings. Mix the wings all around to get them well coated with the marinade.

  2. Marinate the wings for a few hours or overnight in the fridge.
  3. When you are ready to start cooking, mix all of the ingredients for the glaze(except the sesame seeds and spring onions) together and heat in a sauce pan. Simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes until it starts to look glazey and saucey.
  4. Lay your wings out on a baking sheet and turn your oven broiler to high. 
  5. Broil for 12 minutes, flipping the wings over half way through. They are finished when they are golden and crispy.
  6. Remove the wings from the oven and toss them with the glaze in a mixing bowl.
  7. Sprinkle on sesame seeds and garnish with chopped spring onions.

    Delicious!

Notes

The sweetness in this recipe comes from the Masala wine. Any other kind of wine won't give you the same results. You could, however, use Mirin which is a sweet Japanese rice wine.

  1. Those wings look wonderful! Where do you buy Red Boat Fish sauce and coconut aminos? I haven’t been able to find them in Germany

  2. Cheers Mr Swiss Paleo, I’d love to have you in my kitchen.
    I think these wings would go great with some fried rice and a cucumber salad.

    • Hi James,
      Great idea…now I’m hungry for cucumber salad :-)

  3. This is looking yummy

    • Hi Jennifer,
      The pictures don’t do it justice…it was super yummy :-)

  4. I’m making these now! I’m baking the wings a little first before broiling, so I don’t set off my smoke alarm–it’s very sensitive, and my ventilator is woefully inadequate for the type of cooking I do. Also, could never get the glaze to get syrupy (I suspect because all I had was cooking Marsala), so I added a few squirts of honey and a dash or two more of coconut aminos. Oh mi gosh, the honey really makes it! Can’t wait to get these out of the oven!

    • Hi Grace,
      Too funny! We actually just made these again last week. Definitely one of my favorite dishes. I ate a whole plate full :-) Enjoy (and be sure to have plenty of napkins on hand!)
