One of the things I like about this chicken wings recipe is that it’s sweet, not spicy. So, you don’t have to dip it in the blue cheese dip, that doesn’t fit in to a lot of diets. Plus, everything you need is in one dish and you don’t need a dip at all.
I love how the sauce gets all nice and caramelized. If you don’t like coconut aminos or don’t have them, a clean balsamic vinegar will be a pretty darn good substitute. You may just want to use a little less honey, which is actually a bonus for many people.
I also love how there isn’t much prep time and most of the time is spent with the wings baking in the oven, so you can choose what you want to do with your “free” time while your dinner or appetizer cooks.

- 3 Lb Small Chicken Wings
- 1/3 Cup Honey
- ¼ Cup Coconut Aminos
- 2 tsp Minced Garlic
- 3 Tbl Lime Juice
- 1 Tbl Rice Vinegar
- 1 Tbl Sesame Seeds
- Pinch of Chili Flakes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Combine all ingredients except for wings in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 5 minutes, or until thick and glossy. Do not let cook for too long or mixture will caramelize and become hard.
While the sauce is thickening, pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Lightly oil a 9x13 baking dish. Lay the wings in the dish in a single layer. Make sure they aren't touching.
Pour the sauce over the wings, using a basting brush to spread the sauce over all surfaces.
Bake the wings in the preheated oven for 1 hour on the top rack, turning the wings over after 40 minutes have passed.
Remove from oven. The sauce will thicken as the wings start to cool down. Turn wings to thoroughly coat in sauce before serving.
