General Tso Chicken Wings

General Tso Chicken Wings

If you enjoy General Tso Chicken from a Chinese restaurant, this is the appetizer for you. It takes the sweet and spicy sauce that you love and applies it to “finger-lickin’ good” chicken wings. This is great as either an appetizer or the basis of a light meal.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 45 Minutes
Serves: 4-6

4 tablespoons coconut aminos
4 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame seed oil
1-2 tablespoons chili paste
3 cloves of garlic, finely diced
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
⅛ cup honey
½ teaspoon arrowroot powder
2 pounds chicken wings
2 green onions, sliced
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
coconut oil cooking spray or avocado oil in an oil mister

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small sauce pan, stir together the coconut aminos, rice vinegar, sesame seed oil, chili paste, garlic, ginger, and honey. Bring the mixture to a low boil over medium-high heat. Lightly sprinkle in the arrowroot powder while continuously whisking to avoid clumping. Simmer for 3 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Add a little more arrowroot powder if the sauce is not thick enough.
2. Rinse the chicken wings and pat dry. Line a baking pan with foil. Place a wire rack on top of it and spray with coconut oil spray. Brush the sauce onto the wings and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the wings from the oven, flip them, and brush on more sauce.  Bake another 20-25 minutes or until the skin is slightly crunchy. If necessary, broil on high for two minutes to get the skin crispy.Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.

The sauce is delicious, so if you’re not a fan of wings, consider using it on chicken breasts or different meats, adjusting the baking time accordingly.
