The secret to crispy baked chicken wingswithout baking powder is using a wire rack on your baking or “cookie” sheet for 360-degree airflow in your oven! Even better if you can use a convection setting on your oven. Add your sauce after cooking and level up your serving game with a beautiful platter of crudités and dipping sauce! This is a major crowd-pleasing appetizer or meal.
Whether they’re bone-in with the skin on or boneless and skinless, chicken thighs often get a bad wrap. But when cooked properly, like roasting them in the oven until crispy, they’re a delicious and affordable alternative to more standard light meat chicken like breasts. If you’re looking for dense chicken flavor and juicy meat, this is it!

Pasture-raised chicken livers are a superfood packed full of vitamins and minerals. Organ meats like liver are far more nutrient-dense than their muscle-meat counterpart. As an example, Chicken liver is a rich source of heme iron, packing in around 9.2 mg of iron per 2.5 oz. serving! For a reference point, chicken breast has barely 0.9 mg. This is a fabulous and tasty recipe for your health and healing journey!

1/2Tbspgarlic flakescan also just use all garlic powder, 1 Tbsp total
1bunch scallions chopped and divided
1/4cupextra virgin olive oil
FOR THE LEMON-YOGURT DIP
1/4cupcoconut yogurtfor dairy-free or Greek yogurt
1small lemonjuice and zest
Preheat the oven to 425f degrees (use the convection setting if you have it for slightly speedier cooking), arrange a rack in the middle of the oven, and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and a wire rack on top.
Rub the wire rack (or spray) with ½ the olive oil and add the chicken wings flat-side (or skin-side) down. Season with the rest of the olive oil and sea salt.
Bake in the oven for approx. 45-50 minutes, flipping the wings halfway through. As the skin cooks and crisps, it will release drippings which may cause some smoke in the house, so have your windows open and fan turned on (it’s worth it, trust me). Trim off any burned wing ends if you have them.
Meanwhile, mix all ingredients including ½ of the chopped scallions for the honey-garlic sauce in a large mixing bowl and toss cooked chicken in the sauce until well coated right out of the oven and let sit.
Next, mix up the yogurt dip in a serving bowl.
Serve chicken wings with the yogurt dip, and garnish with more chopped scallions. Optionally serve on a crudités board with your favorite chopped raw vegetables.
Make it a chicken wing board by arranging crudités vegetables such as chopped raw carrots, broccoli, or celery around the chicken wings on a large platter or cutting board.*To make it Whole30, omit the honey sauce.
