I was laughing to myself while making these because there is really no such thing as a boneless chicken wing. But we are using the same method and using boneless chicken. I love chicken wings and so do millions of others but when entertaining at home, I don't like to make them because of the mess. The bones that we need to discard, the big pan to fry the wings in, and of course all of the sticky fingers! My Paleo boneless chicken recipe is not only healthy and easy to make but just pop in toothpicks and there won't be any sticky marks in your house. I hope you enjoy my version!

Directions

  • Mix tapioca starch, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and paprika together in a large bowl with a fork. Add chicken cubes; toss with your hands until coated on all sides.

  • Heat coconut oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until melted and hot. Add some of the chicken cubes using tongs; cook until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat with remaining chicken, heating up more coconut oil and butter as needed.

  • Reduce heat to medium and whisk garlic and ginger into the grease in the skillet. Whisk in coconut aminos, honey, and sriracha sauce. Simmer over low heat until flavors combine, about 5 minutes. Stir in chicken; cook until sauce thickens and coats chicken, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Garnish chicken with scallions and sesame oil; serve on toothpicks.

Cook's Note:

If there's no grease left in the skillet after cooking the chicken, add 2 tablespoons coconut oil before proceeding with step 3.

To make things easy drop the chicken coating ingredients into a gallon ziplock bag zip and give it a shake. Drop all of the cubed chicken in and do the same. I don't do paleo but thought this recipe looked interesting and wanted to give it a try. On that note I did not buy coconut amino but used reduced sodium soy sauce instead. These were different from the traditional hot wing flavor and have an Asian flair to them. I do think they need more Sriracha and ended up doubling the amount. These would be a big hit for a Superbowl party! Read More

Made this for my family of 5 who all love chicken wings. The sauce was just too thick and felt the flavor was just ok. I had higher hopes since honey Sriracha is my favorite flavor of sauce for wings. Read More

We used boneless skinless chicken thighs and this came out fantastic. I don't think my 12 yr old has eaten this much chicken in one sitting ever. Read More

Delicious and easy. I used chicken tenders instead of cubes and then wrapped them in lettuce leaves for a wrap. GREAT DINNER!! I am going to try them again for Super Bowl Sunday. Read More

I really like this recipe! I wanted to make it exactly as written but did not have tapioca starch or aminos so I broke from paleo tradition and used flour and soy sauce. It turned out fantastic! I put too much hot sauce so had to tame it down a bit with extra butter and brown sugar but will definitely add this to my rotation. Read More

I had to change things up a bit because I didn t have all the ingredients. I used red pepper flakes instead of ground red pepper used corn starch instead of tapioca and used palm shortening and coconut oil. Instead of sriracha I made a buffalo sauce with honey. These turned out perfect!! Just the right amount of crispiness and they were so juicy!! I set out a plate for the family and it was gone in no time!! I will definitely make it again. Read More

Delicious it was healthier than we would have normally made fried chicken! It was very flavorful but we have some spicy-haters in this house so we left out the sriracha sauce for anyone to use on the side! Read More
