Whole30 Hawaiian Chicken Wings

Sweet and Sticky Chicken Wings | All the Healthy Things

There are few things that I love more than a good chicken wing.

At this point, I'm pretty sure I could write a love letter to them, but I'll spare you and just get on with this post. 

These chicken wings are my new favorite recipe. With so many people doing a Whole30 or just trying to make healthier choices, I was determined to make a wing recipe that everyone could enjoy at a party without compromising on flavor.

In addition to these wings being delicious, they're Whole30 compliant, Paleo friendly, gluten-free, dairy-free, and just about every other label you can think of. Except, vegetarian or vegan...I'm not sure I have it in me to make a vegetarian/vegan chicken wing...

The best part about these chicken wings, in my opinion, is that you make them in the oven.

There's no need to pull out a gallon of oil and fry anything. Instead, you just throw them on a baking sheet with a little avocado or coconut oil and let them do their thing for a little while in the oven until crispy. 

Second best part is the sauce. Coconut aminos, ginger, and a few spices combine to make the most flavorful sweet and sticky sauce. Plus, these wings get their sweetness from pineapple juice concentrate instead of added sugar!

Ok, I'm going to wrap this up now because I could honestly go on and on about how delicious these wings are forever and ever. Instead, I'll just encourage you to try them for yourself. I promise you won't be disappointed!

For the chicken wings: 

  • 1 tablespoon avocado or coconut oil

  • 2 pounds chicken wings

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

For the sauce: 

  • 1 cup coconut aminos

  • 2/3 cup pineapple juice concentrate

  • 3 slices of ginger

  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/4 tsp onion powder

  • pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Toss the chicken wings in the oil, salt, and garlic powder. Lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 45-50 minutes or until crispy.

  2. While the wings are cooking, make the sauce. Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a saucepan. Bring the sauce to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Let the sauce simmer for 10-15 more minutes or until it's thickened and coats the back of spoon. Then, remove the sauce from the heat.

  3. When the wings are done, transfer them to a heat safe bowl and pour the sauce over the wings. Toss the wings in the sauce until each wing is well coated. Serve immediately and enjoy!
