Keto, Paleo, Recipes, Whole30 Extra Crispy Cajun Wings January 26, 2019

I have said it before and I will say it again, the quickest way to my heart is with a chicken wing. That’s right, I don’t need fancy diamonds or roses, hand me a 6 piece chicken wing meal and we will be best friends. I am constantly testing new flavors and ways to cook chicken wings that align with my families Paleo and Whole30 lifestyle. My new Cajun Wings will make you jump for joy and keep you reaching for more.

Even those these little babies look crispy and unhealthy, the truth is they are Paleo, Keto, Whole30 compliant along with being gluten and dairy free. My special homemade Cajun seasoning that give these wings the perfect crispy and savory crust. They may look fried, but they are actually baked in the oven, so you get all the delicious flavor without all the calories.

To top these off, I dip them in my homemade ranch dressing that pairs perfectly with the Cajun spices. These wings will for sure fool you because they are just as crispy as a fried wing. The key is making sure you go really heavy on the seasoning, then baking on

Superbowl Sunday is next weekend and these will serve as the perfect Paleo appetizer. Feel free to also serve them for family gathers, tailgating or any other social gathering. I am 100% positive that these will be a show stopper at your event. Here is a word of advice though, make sure you make a double batch so they don’t go too fast.

Oven Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F
  2. Prepare the wings by placing them on a paper towel and pat dry.
  3. Place the wings in a bowl and drizzle with 2 tbsp of olive oil. Sprinkle the seasoning in, turning until each wing is covered.
  4. Keep a little extra seasoning to sprinkle on the wings in the middle of cooking. This gives the wings an extra crispiness and flavor.
  5. Add a rack to a baking sheet and place all of the wings on top of the rack. (The wire rack allows the wings to get crispy all the way around). If you don't have a wire rack, just line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place wings on top.
  6. Add the wire rack or baking sheet to the oven.
  7. Cook for 15 minutes then remove the wings from the oven and sprinkle more seasoning evenly on the wings and turn them.
  8. Add back to the oven to cook for 15-20 more minutes.
  9. Serve with ranch and green onions. See below in the notes for a link to my homemade ranch recipe.
Air Fryer Method
  1. Prep the Air Fryer basket by spraying with compliant cooking spray.
  2. Add the seasoned wings to the basket and cook on 380 degrees for 25 minutes. Make sure to shake the basket every 5 minutes to insure even cooking.
  3. After the 25 minutes, shake the chicken wings one more time and finish cooking. Increase the temperature to 400 degrees and cook for 5 more minutes.
  4. When the wings are finished, dump them into the mixing bowl with the sauce and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
  5. When the wings are completely done cooking, remove the basket and add to a serving platter and serve immediately.
