Primal Wings

“I don’t like chicken legs, unless they are covered in hot sauce” – me

Their is nothing more primal than eating meat on a bone! Which means, chicken wings can be a fairly healthy food, if made correctly. The reason chicken wings have such a bad reputation is they are usually covered in breading, deep fried in rancid vegetable oil, and covered in sauces that can best be described as; a chemical shit storm. But the chicken wing does not have be an unhealthy food. Luckily, it is very easy to make a very healthy chicken wing! Try this very easy recipe and enjoy the new updated, chicken wing, Chicken Wing 2.0!

Step 6: About 45-mins after putting chicken in oven, start making the sauce. To make sauce, combine the hot sauce, the butter, garlic powder, the chile powder, salt, pepper, and red pepper flake (if you like the sauce spicy!). Heat the sauce at a low to medium heat, if sauce gets too hot (temperature) the butter separates. Continue to stir the sauce intermittently until well mixed.
