With Chicken Wings This Flavorful, Who Needs Sauce?

Whether you're watching the big game or enjoying a summer picnic, chicken wings make a tasty protein source. Here, we've subbed in a coconut flour batter to make them gluten-free and amped up the flavor with five spices.  

Coconut-Flour Fried Chicken Wings

Yield: 4 servings
Active Time:

Recipe Ingredients

15 chicken drumsticks
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 eggs
1 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut oil, for frying

Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Pat chicken dry.

Beat eggs in a shallow bowl, set aside. In a shallow dish, mix coconut flour and spices.

Dip chicken pieces into egg mixture, turning to coat evenly with egg. Transfer egg-coated chicken into seasoned coconut flour, coat well with coconut flour, and place on a separate plate.

Heat 1/2 cup coconut oil in a shallow pan over medium heat. Working in batches, pan fry chicken 2 to 3 minutes per side. Place chicken on baking sheet and place in oven 5 minutes to cook through.

    This looks great and I can't wait to try it out. I assume the same recipe can be used for other cuts of chicken, such as boneless chicken breasts, right?
