Ingredients: chicken wings, mango, garlic, lime juice, lime zest, coconut aminos, avocado oil, water, ginger, gluten-free fish sauce.
In this clever Paleo recipe, you are using mango as the source of the sweetness for the glaze, so this is sugar-free and suitable for AIP diets too. There is no fruity flavor once the mango is cooked – it just acts like honey or syrup to form a sweet and sticky glaze which makes these chicken wings so tasty and appealing to the eye as well as to the taste buds!

Chicken wings make such great party food or as a snack to enjoy on game night, but we can get used to the same old flavors all the time. So, this recipe lets you jazz things up so much!

The lime makes a zesty partner to the honey, giving you sticky wings that are full of flavor but are still suitable for Paleo and AIP eating plans. The dip is smooth and creamy and easy to adjust to suit your AIP diet by omitting the pepper flakes and mayo, as the avocado still gives that velvety feel you like.

This is a classic combination of flavors and the rosemary gives the wings a wonderfully herby taste. This recipe is low carb and suitable for paleo and autoimmune protocol too.
