The beauty of experimentation is that sometimes, something turns out delicious and you cannot help but share! This was definitely the case with my Whole 30 Creamy Mild Wings that I made in our air fryer. If you do not have an air fryer, see below at my notes for how to create these masterpieces in the oven. Finding a way to create healthier versions of your favorite indulgences (for me, wings) is so worthwhile!
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 20-30 minutes Yield: 24 wings
- Chicken wings and drumsticks (whatever you prefer, or maybe both)
- 1 cup Whole 30 compliant hot sauce (I used Tessemae’s Mild Buffalo Sauce)
- 1/2 cup Whole 30 compliant ranch (I used Primal Kitchen’s Avocado Ranch)
- 2 TBSP Ghee (you can get it anywhere (even Walmart) but I buy it through Thrive Market where I buy most of my Whole 30 compliant items)
- Almond flour (optional-see notes)
- Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees
- Salt and pepper each side of of wings
- Use a basting brush to brush hot sauce on wings
- Place wings in air fryer (make sure to not overlap them) and cook them for 10 minutes. Then open air fryer and flip wings and cook for another 10 minutes.
- Gauge the crispiness of your wings and then decide if you feel they need more time. For example, I like mine extra crispy so I repeated Step 4 again but only for 5 minutes each this time.
- While your wings are in the air fryer melt 2 TBSP ghee in a saucepan
- Once ghee is melted combine ghee, 1 cup (or to taste) of W30 compliant buffalo sauce, and 1/2 cup of W30 ranch until it comes to a boil.
- If the sauce seems a bit runny, I recommend adding almond flour until it is to your desired thickness.
- Last, plate wings and sauce and dive in!!!
Note: If you are cooking them in the oven, preheat the oven to 400 degrees and then cook for 45-50 minutes. It may benefit you to take them halfway out and flip them.
Note: If you buy wings that have the drumstick attached, I recommend cutting them apart so that you can fit more into the air fryer. However, that is a personal choice.
Note: If the sauce seems runny, add some almond flour, coconut flour, or arrowroot powder, whatever you have, to make it a little thicker if you so desire!
