Easy Ginger Sesame Baked Wings – An easy and delicious appetizer (or meal) that is Whole30 and Paleo!  Perfect for Game Day!




  • 11.5 lbs chicken wings
  • salt and pepper


  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/2 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • a pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 3/4 tablespoon arrowroot powder


  • freshly chopped cilantro
  • lime wedges
  • sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Line cookie sheet with foil and place wire rack on top.
  3. Place wings on top of wire rack and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes and then remove and flip over, sprinkling the other side with salt and pepper.
  5. Place chicken back in oven for an additional 15-20 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, in small saucepan, combine coconut aminos, ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes, sesame oil, rice vinegar and pinch of salt.
  7. Whisk together and place on stovetop on medium heat.
  8. Add arrowroot powder and whisk together; it will start to thicken as it starts to heat up.
  9. Continue to whisk and remove AS SOON AS IT STARTS TO THICKEN! If you over cook it, the arrowroot will turn the sauce gummy and become too thick.
  10. When wing are done, place in large bowl and then drizzle with sauce; tossing to coat all of the wings.
  11. Place wings on serving plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds and cilantro; serve with lime wedges.


  • Servings: Servings listed are if served as an appetizer. If you are serving as a meal I would say 1 batch would serve 2-4 people.
  • Dipping Sauce: I always make a batch of this Homemade Ranch Dressing (Whole30/Paleo) to dip these in!
  • Chicken Drumsticks: You could definitely use this same recipe for chicken drumsticks – same exact recipe, but just cook for about 40-45 minutes or until an internal meat thermometer reads 165 degrees. You could use about 12 medium-sized drumsticks.
