Time: 1 hr.
- 4 lbs chicken wings
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 10 Medjool dates, soaked in hot water (save 1/2 cup of water), pitted and chopped
- 1/4 cup Bonafide Provisions organic chicken bone broth
- 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons gochujang spice
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- 1/4 cup coconut aminos
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 2 tablespoons ghee
- Green onions, for garnish
- Sesame seeds, for garnish
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line with aluminum foil with a wire baking rack on top. Be sure to spray the rack with cooking spray.
- Pat chicken wings dry and season with salt and pepper to taste. Place in a bowl or ziplock bag. Set aside.
- Add the dates and 1/2 cup water to a food processor or blender, pulsing until smooth.
- Add in all the remaining ingredients except the ghee. Pulse until smooth and well combined.
- Pour about 3/4 of the gochujang sauce over the chicken wings, toss until well coated. Allow the chicken to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking.
- Using tongs, evenly place the wings on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Save excess marinade with the reserved 1/4.
- Bake the wings for 15 minutes before using tongs to flip them. Bake for another 10-15 minutes.
- Once the wings have finished cooking, transfer them to a large bowl. Pour the remaining gochujang marinade in a saucepan, along with the ghee. Heat over medium-high heat until the ghee has melted. Whisk until fully combined and allow to simmer for 2 minutes before pouring the marinade over the wings. Toss to fully coat. Transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with green onions, sesame seeds, or red pepper flakes.
