These chicken wings are baked, so other than the five minutes of prep-time and the 45-55 minutes of waiting while they bake, this recipe is super simple, succulent and superbly delicious. Chicken wings have never been so sweet…
6 fresh/defrosted chicken wings
4 dates, chopped
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange (blood orange is my favorite)
6 tablespoons paprika
1 teaspoon thyme
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Place the chicken wings in an oven dish and top with the coconut oil.
Add the chopped dates.
Drizzle with 1/2 the orange juice and sprinkle with 1/2 the paprika.
Place in the oven and set the timer to 35 minutes.
Remove from the oven and turn the chicken wings.
Drizzle with the other 1/2 of the orange juice and sprinkle with the other half of 1/2 the paprika.
Place back in the oven for approximately 10-15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and serve the chicken hot, drizzled with the date and orange sauce from the oven dish and topped with the thyme.
