Sweet & Spicy Thai Chicken Wings



2 lbs. split chicken wings

2 tbsp olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup coconut aminos

1 tsp toasted sesame oil

juice of 1 lime

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp minced garlic

1 tbsp ground chili paste

2 tsp rice vinegar

1 tbsp honey

1/2 tsp arrowroot powder or cornstarch

2 tsp warm water

chopped cashews to taste, optional

sesame seeds for topping 


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Take a large baking sheet and top it with a baking rack (baking the wings on the rack gets them crispier)

Rinse your chicken wings and pat them dry. Toss them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper.

Place each chicken wing on on the baking rack topped baking sheet in a single layer. Do not over crowd the wings. 

Bake them for 25 minutes, flip each wing over and bake another 20-25 minutes.

With about 10 minutes left of baking time – combine all the sauce ingredients (coconut aminos, toasted sesame oil, lime, ginger, garlic, chili paste, rice vinegar, honey) in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil and then reduce heat. Whisk in the arrowroot powder or cornstarch mixed with warm water and whisk it into the sauce. let simmer for 7-8 minutes.. whisking very frequently. 

Toss the baked wings in the sauce. If you want them extra crispy you can add them back to the baking sheet/rack and broil for 1 minute.

Top with chopped cashews and sesame seeds and serve immediately.
