 Serves: 3


✓ 3 cloves garlic (finely chopped)

✓ 4 tbsp. Maple Syrup

✓ 1 lime (zest and juice)

✓ 1 tbsp. Coconut Oil (melted)

✓ 1 tbsp. hot pepper sauce

✓ 2 tbsp. barbecue sauce

#3 Coat the chicken wings and set aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes (for best taste, leave to marinade overnight).

#3 Once marinated, pick the wings out of the sauce and spread them out onto a baking tray (don’t throw the sauce away!).
