PALEOCHEF Coconut Dusted Chicken Wings

Ingredient List:

  • 8 Chicken Wings, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 Egg, beaten until uniform
  • Kosher Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 2 Cups Olive Oil or Coconut Oil
  • ½ Cup Coconut Flour
  • ½ Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
  • 8 “Batons” of Jicama
  • 8 “Batons” of Pineapple
  • ½ Bunch Cilantro Rinsed
  • ½ Cup PALEOCHEF Wing Sauce

Preparation Instructions:

  1. Combine chicken wings and beaten egg in a small bowl.
  2. Combine coconut flour and shredded coconut in small bowl.
  3. Heat olive/coconut oil (1/2” deep) in a skillet/pan to 350°F.
  4. When oil is hot, season chicken and egg mixture with salt and pepper and then “bread” the wings in the coconut flour/flake mixture, one at a time.
  5. Place wings directly into oil, but do not overcrowd pan. The oil temperature should not drop below 325°F at any time.
  6. Cook wings on the first side for 3 minutes, and then turn over.
  7. Cook wings on the second side until they reach an internal temperature of 165° in the thickest part.
  8. Remove wings to a paper towel lined plate or baking rack.
  9. Prepare your plate with cilantro and jicama and pineapple “batons”.
  10. Toss wings and PALEOCHEF Wing Sauce in a mixing bowl and serve over the top of the cilantro/baton bed.

Zone Breakdown:

Proteins: (7)

We have one egg which gives us one protein block. We also have 8 chicken wings. They are about 21g each, which gives us about 168g of chicken. Given that 28g equal one block that gives us 6 protein blocks adding to the total of 7 protein blocks.

Carbohydrates: (8.5)

We have jicama and pineapple giving us our carbs. One average sized jicama weights about 660g. 225g of jicama gives us one block, so one medium jicama gives us about 3 blocks. Additionally, we half a pineapple weighing around 450g. ½ a cup of pineapple equals one block, which weighs around 83g. So therefore we have about 5.5 blocks from the pineapple. We have a total of 8.5 carb blocks.

Fats: (37)

Our fats come from our oil and our coconut flour. We are using a lot of oil to cook the chicken wings in, but only about a ¼ of it will be absorbed. Therefore we will say we are going to ultimately count ½ cup of oil which will give us 36 fat blocks. Additionally we get one block from the coconut flour for a total of 37 blocks.

Balancing Act:

We have a fairly even protein to carb balance, which is exactly what we want when we are trying to balance out a meal. The fat count is a little high, but we can cut back in other meals to balance this out throughout the day.
