Football Food! Paleo Buffalo Wings

wingsThis recipe comes from Fed & Fit and the resulting wings were delicious — spicy, but with some other flavors to round them out.

Note: If you don’t feel like making your own sauce, Franks Red Hot (Original) and Cholula brand hot sauces are both paleo, without added junk. Just add a little melted grass-fed butter or coconut oil and toss the sauce with the wings.

Paleo Buffalo Wings, from Fed and Fit


  • 2 lbs chicken wings
  • 1 t sea salt
  • 1 t cracked black pepper
  • 3 T coconut oil (or butter from grass-fed cows, such as Kerrygold)
  • 3 T cider vinegar
  • ½ t cayenne pepper (more if you like them extra spicy)
  • ½ t hot paprika
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1 t onion powder
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 t sea salt


For the wings:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Pat wings dry with paper towels, spread them on the baking sheet, and season with sea salt and cracked pepper.

Bake at 400 for 40-45 minutes (time will vary – start watching after 40 minutes and bake until they start to look brown).

For the sauce: 

In a medium sized saucepan, melt the coconut oil or butter over medium heat. Stir in the cayenne, hot paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Remove from heat and add lemon juice and vinegar.

Once the wings have cooled a little from the oven, put them in a gallon Ziploc bag and pour the buffalo sauce over. Seal the bag and shake for a good minute. This will evenly coat the wings. Pour into a bowl and serve!
