These General Tso style Asian Chicken Wings are addictive! They’re perfect for serving for game day, at a party, or just as a fun dinner. They’re soy free, gluten free, paleo, and AIP compliant.

Chicken wings are perfect party food! They’re simple to make, easy to snack on, and you can flavor them so many different ways. That’s why tons of pizza delivery restaurants also carry wings… for days like the Super Bowl! But let’s be honest, your average chicken wings on a menu at a pizza delivery place aren’t going to be food intolerance friendly.

These General Tso’s style Asian Chicken Wings are delicious, easy to make, and soy and gluten free! No soy sauce, no refined sugar, and no cornstarch to thicken the sauce. Make them for a party appetizer, game day snack, or just as a fun dinner.

The Ingredient’s You’ll Need

Chicken wings

Any wings will work!

Coconut aminos

This a soy sauce substitute that you can buy in most health food stores and online.

Apple cider vinegar

Traditional General Tso’s Chicken has white vinegar, but this recipe uses apple cider vinegar. Most white vinegar is made from corn.

Blackstrap molasses

This is a secret ingredient in these wings! It makes them super rich and not too sweet. You can also use honey, but I highly recommend blackstrap molasses.

Arrowroot starch

This thickens the sauce.
