Keto Chicken Wings
These Keto Chicken Wings are one of my favorite nibbles to serve to guests. A universally loved appetizer, they work just as well as the main course. I like to serve with Keto Peanut Sauce, which perfectly compliments the Thai inspired flavors in the marinade. You can make this recipe kid-friendly by subbing out a mild pepper or kick up the heat by adding another pepper to the marinade.
- 1 can coconut milk
- ¼ cup gluten-free tamari or coconut aminos
- ⅓ cup lime juice
- 1 red Thai chili pepper seeded and chopped
- 3 tablespoons avocado oil
- 1 tablespoon almond butter or peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 2 pounds chicken wings or drumettes
In a large bowl whisk together coconut milk, coconut aminos, lime juice, Thai chili pepper, avocado oil, almond butter, and garlic.
Add wings to the bowl and cover.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to overnight.
Preheat oven to 425.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and use tongs to remove the wings from the marinade.
Place the wings in a single layer. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, until the wings are crispy and an instant-read thermometer reads 165 degrees F.
Air Fryer Instructions
Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees.
Place the wings in your air fryer. (Depending on the model of your fryer, you may need to cook in batches.)
Cook for 20 to 25 minutes, tossing after 10 minutes, or until the outset skin is crispy and the wings are cooked through and an instant-read thermometer reads 165 degrees.
Preheat the broiler to high.Add 1 cup of water or broth to the bottom of your Instant Pot and place the trivet on top. Arrange the chicken wings on top of the trivet.
Set the pressure to high and cook for 10 minutes.
Allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes and then to a quick release.Arrange the wings in a single layer on a baking sheet and broil for 3 to 5 minutes, until crispy.
