Steph’s note: Jalapeño-Lime Chicken Wings (with Paleo Ranch Dressing Dip) is coming at you today from my guest blogger Rach from Meatified! Wings—I mean, c’mon—what’s not to love? I first learned of Rach from her screen-lickable photos of Paleo food, and with a name like Meatified, I knew she was onto something good.

A former vegetarian, she originally found the Paleo lifestyle while looking for a way to improve her health after years of thyroid-related issues. She creates original recipes that are grain- and sugar-free while trying to finally figure out how to work the camera she shamelessly “borrowed” from her husband. Pick up a copy of her new cookbook, Nourish: The Paleo Healing Cookbook!

Ingredients

For the Wings:

  • 2 lb chicken wings
  • 2 jalapeño peppers seeded and cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 lime juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves

For the Ranch:

  • 1/4 cup cashews raw & unsalted, soaked for at least 6 hours, rinsed & drained
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk full-fat
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp chives chopped
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp dried dill
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  1. Add all of the marinade ingredients (not the chicken!) to a blender. Process until smooth. If the marinade is a little thick, add a splash of water and re-process.
  2. Put the chicken wings into a container or large freezer bag. Pour over the marinade and toss the wings through it so that they are evenly coated.
  3. Marinate for at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.
  4. When you are ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking tray with foil and place a cooling rack onto the foil-lined tray. Place the wings onto the metal rack, and bake for 15 minutes.

  5. Turn the oven up to 425°F. Turn the chicken wings over and return them to the oven for another 15 minutes, or until browned. While the chicken is cooking, make the Ranch Dressing Dip! (See below.)

  6. In a mini food processor or blender, process the soaked and drained cashews until you have a paste. You may need to scrape down the sides of your processor or blender a few times to do this.

  7. Add the lemon juice, the rest of the coconut milk, the seasonings and herbs. Process until combined and the dressing is smooth. If it is still a little thick, add a splash of water and re-process.

  8. Once the Jalapeño-Lime Chicken Wings are cooked, serve with the Paleo Ranch Dressing Dip.
