Chicken Wings:


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Pat dry and place chicken wings on oiled baking sheet or I used a cast iron skillet. Salt and pepper them and add the avocado oil on them. Bake them for 30 mins.

  3. Once wings are finished baking take them out and coat them with your sauce and put back in the oven for another 10 mins and enjoy! You can serve these with celery and carrots and primal kitchen ranch dressing.
