Instructions

Marinade and wings

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Set aside a broiler pan, or a baking sheet with a fitted wire rack.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the marinade ingredients. Place the wings into a large bowl, or a plastic bag, and pour two-thirds of the marinade over the wings. Marinate for a minimum of 10 minutes, or refrigerate overnight.
  3. Using tongs, place the wings on the broiler pan or wire rack, and bake for 30-35 minutes, depending upon the size of the wings. Remove from oven, brush the remaining marinade over the wings, and bake for another 5 minutes.
  4. Tamari dressing

  5. In a small bowl, mix together the tamari soy sauce, olive oil, sriracha, and sesame seeds. Set aside.
  6. Bok choy

  7. Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan, over medium-high heat. In batches, fry the bok choy for about 5 minutes per side, until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  8. For serving, place the wings and bok choy onto individual plates. Drizzle the tamari dressing over the wings and bok choy, and sprinkle the scallions, chili pepper, and cashew nuts (optional) on top. Enjoy!

Tips

Feel free to use any cruciferous or cabbage-like vegetable in place of the bok choy. Savoy cabbage, Napa cabbage, broccoli, broccolini, and gai lan (Chinese broccoli) all work with this recipe.

Coconut oil: Use unrefined coconut oil for added coconut flavor, or refined coconut oil for a flavorless oil.

If you like wings with an extra-crispy texture, broil for 1-3 minutes after baking (watch carefully to avoid burning!).

    I loved this recipe. But I did make a couple of changes...I did not put any salt in the marinade, and I added sambal oelek to the marinade. I also don't think the dressing is needed.
    I can't wait to make this again.
