Paleo Chicken Wings

Tonight I made one of my favorite dishes from what I think is one of the best Paleo recipe sites,  Taco Wings with Guac Dip.   The recipe is naturally allergy-free!  They have a wonderful, smoky flavor, which tastes great with the mild guacamole dip.

This recipe takes very little time to prepare.  You simply lay the wings out on a baking sheet and spray them with a little oil.  After mixing the dry spices in a small bowl, sprinkle both sides of the wings with them.:

The wings are broiled on both sides, for roughly 30 minutes total.  While they are cooking, I mixed up the guacamole.  They were such a yummy main course for this allergy-free dinner, which also included a side of Chipotle Coleslaw and a fresh arugula salad.


The Taco Chicken Wing with Guac Dip can be found on the Health Bent website here.  In case you'd like to print directly from here (see the green 'print' button at the bottom of the post), this is for you:

(From Health-Bent)


3 lbs chicken wings
F.O.C. (fat of choice)
2 t garlic powder
2 t chili powder
1 1/2 t salt
1 t smoked paprika
1 t regular paprika
1/4 t cayenne pepper
guac dip
2 avocados
1 lime, juiced
1 handful cilantro, chopped
chili garlic sauce, to taste



  • Move the oven rack to the upper-middle part of the oven. Place the oven on broil. 
  • Mix the spices together. Coat the wings in the spice mix along with a few tablespoons of your F.O.C (melted). Place the wings, skin side down, on a baking sheet. Broil for about 12 minutes on this side, until crispy. Use a pair of tongs to flip over the wings to skin-side up. Continue to broil for about 20 minutes, until the skin is super crispy.
