Crispy Chicken Wings (Baked not Fried!!) Gluten Free, Paleo & Whole30 | Episode 15


what’s the word for that – that is not working – hi everybody welcome to health coach TV I’m Alex and this is the show where I show you how to cook healthy food that doesn’t suck today we’re going to be making some crispy chicken wings they are going to be spicy they are going to be delicious and they’re also going to be paleo and whole 30 approved can it get better than that? it is possible to have crispy chicken wings without breading and deep frying it i promise you’re gonna see – the things you’re going to need for this recipe are a pound of organic chicken wings salt baking powder Korean chili flakes or paprika hot sauces of your choice that’s it it’s really easy I promise so take your chicken and the first thing you want to do is like dry it off it was very moist when they took it out of the bag always make sure you buy organic please please please please please for so many reasons but I just think it tastes better too so our chickens is dry we’re going to take our baking powder put two heaping table spoons into our Bowl the reason that we’re using baking powder is that it has this weird chemical reaction with the skin of the chicken that’s how it gets crispy – science so now I’m going to take my pepper flakes and I’m going to do one regular sized tablespoon of that we’re going to be adding a little hot sauce at the end too so I don’t want to overpower it before we even get started and salt and then we’re just going to mix this up I got dust flying everywhere add your chicken this goes immediately to get cleaned and mix it up now the funny thing that you’re going to notice is that when the chemical reaction starts to happen you’ll actually hear it you can hear it’s like a snap crackle pop you can actually hear it happening it’s pretty cool it’s like sizzling okay so now we have some really dry unappetizing looking wings you’re welcome what do we need to do now now I need to line a baking sheet because the less cleaning we can do is always the best amount of cleaning zero amount of cleaning is the best amount of cleaning you want to take a rack and put it on top of your sheet if you have a rack and a pan that actually fit together use those mine is slightly makeshift pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees I’m going to toss these one more time there’s definitely some extra breading left at the bottom which is fine but if I can get a little bit more on there’s nothing wrong with that either just take your wings and lay them out on the baking sheet I don’t think it really matters which side up which side down some are drumstick some are wings but you want to give them all a little bit of room some space to breathe so that the heat can get all the way around them make room for your friends they’re coming to the party so we’ve got our wings all ready going to put it in the pr-heated oven for 20 minutes then we’re going to flip it another 20 minutes flip it again and then keep cooking it that way until it’s done it’s been 20 minutes let’s check on our wing always use protection okay these look really good so far they’re starting to kind of crisp up on the bottom side so they’re still pretty dry on both sides but what we want to do is flip them all over so that both sides get cook evenly you’ll notice the side on the bottom looks a little bit less white and powdery and the side on the top still looks pretty much exactly the same as it did when we took it out of the bowl but that’s okay we still got some time to cook so now everything has been flipped throw it back in the oven for another 20 minutes in ya go buddies we’ve got a couple minutes until the wings are ready so in the meantime we’re going to get the sauce prepped that we can toss the wings in the sauce when they’re ready duh the typical buffalo chicken wing sauce is a whole bunch of melted butter with just a bunch of hot sauce why add all the butter and extra calories and cholesterol go right for the flavor get that hot sauce on there in this bowl put a bunch of hot sauce I told you this recipe is dead easy so just for the sake of it I’m going to measure for the first time ever on health coach TV we’re using measuring devices while cooking isn’t this exciting ok so I put about half of a corner because Frank’s and now i’m going to put the rest in just regular tobacco any vinegar based hot sauce is good both Frank’s and Tabasco are paleo and while 30 approved really what that just means is that there’s no sugar in either of these our incredibly complicated sauce has been assembled and now we just wait for the chicken wings to be ready what’s the internal temperature of a cooked chicken wings thank you google 180 degrees Fahrenheit when those chicken wings come out of the oven we’re going to test them if they’re 180 degrees Fahrenheit then they’re done if not we’ll throw them back in the oven for a little bit I don’t know where my thermometer I’m in 13 seconds hmm hello let’s do this so as you can see these all have a really nice crispy skin on them which is amazing I’m going to get into the chicken wings whenever you’re cooking meat you always want to check the internal temperature because that’s really the only way that you’re gonna know that they’re done and these are definitely done coming in at like over 200 degrees way more than done perfect no food poisoning from me so we’re just going to take our chicken and put it right into our souce maybe i should have greased this first some of them are coming out fine and some of them are a little bit sticky so all of the chicken into the cause bowl it’s pronounced sauce not sauce like you might think then we’re going to toss them up literally oh god I’m wearing a white shirt I can use utensils instead of flare even though my flare is mad strong these look pretty tasty I always woah saved the shirt saved the shirt okay I need a bigger bowl all right take 2 these look really good and they smell really good you could add more hot sauce if you want *cough* that’s like potent check them out they look like awesome chicken wings don’t they look amazing these paleo whole30 approved chicken wings are absolutely delicious they were dead easy this

    😩 Im gonna try it without the baking powder ..I'm doing the whole 30 and baking powder is not compliant because it contains corn starch 😭

    This was great, I have been researching "
    paleo dish to pass
    " for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried – Elijaarqey Paleo Smasher – ( search on google ) ? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my mate got amazing results with it.

    I really get super pissed when people think that Gluten Free is a choice, videos for Celiac patients like myself should be very well labeled as GF period, it's not a choice, it's a disease !
