Ingredients

Baked chicken wings
  • 3 lbs 1.5 kg chicken wings
  • ½ ½ orange, juice and zestoranges, juice and zest
  • ¼ cup 60 ml olive oil
  • 2 tsp 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
Creamy broccoli
  • 25 oz. 700 g broccoli
  • 1 cup 225 ml mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup 60 ml chopped fresh dill
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Mix juice and zest from the orange with oil and spices in a small bowl. Place the chicken wings in a plastic bag and pour in the marinade.
  3. Give the bag a good shake to cover the wings thoroughly. Put aside to marinate for at least 5 minutes but preferably more.
  4. Place the wings in one layer in a greased baking dish.
  5. Bake on middle rack in the oven for about 45 minutes or until the wings are golden brown and thoroughly cooked.
  6. In the meantime, divide the broccoli into small florets and parboil in salted water for a couple of minutes. They're only supposed to soften a bit but not lose their shape or color.
  7. Strain the broccoli and let some of the steam evaporate before adding the remaining ingredients. Serve the broccoli with the baked wings.

Tip!

You can substitute the broccoli for small florets of cauliflower or Brussels sprouts. If you have an outdoor grill going you can use that for cooking the wings as well.

    Hi Carol,

    Thanks for noticing!

    We're actively developing how recipes & meal plans are handled, and sometimes things break, unfortunately! Should be fixed now.

    Made this tonight and the wings were delicious. I upped the cayenne just a little so mine had more punch and I split the mayo with some sour cream and it was fantastic.

    One if the best new ones!

    What can you substitute mayo with. I can't eat mayo and was wondering?

    Hi Jeannine
    Perhaps sour cream or yogurt...or a mix of the two. Hope that helps.

    How much does the orange flavoring add? I don't have one but if it's a must I'll get one. Plus, I thought it wasn't keto? Thanks in advance.
