Healthy "chicken wings"

I was out earlier this week with a friend
and they mentioned chicken wings...
damn! since being back on poultry I have not had any

Mmmm... I remember wing nights.
Pint of Guinness and an order of Medium wings, please.
Looking back, makes sense why I felt like ass after
Gluten intolerants worst nightmare!

So it got me thinking,
especially with this MILD weather...
BBQ chicken... that tastes like wings!

What is wing sauce anyways?
Franks red and butter.
Now thats not good for anyones diet
Franks and coconut oil?

Turned out amazing
served it with chunks of sweet potatoes done on the bbq
with onions (top rack, bbq aluminum tray, 45 min ish)
and sauted spinach and kale with evoo and epicures chili lime sansel

1 tray of organic chicken fillets or 2 chicken breasts
skinless and boneless, cut into 1 1/4 inch strips
1 bottle of italian salad dressing
franks red hot
coconut oil
coconut aminos (like soy sauce, but WAY BETTER FOR YOU!)

How to:
Place the chicken in a tupperware container
cover with italian dressing
place in fridge, marinate for at least half hour but no longer then 2 hours

in a double broiler on low
add approx 1.5 tbsp of coconut oil
and 1/4 cup of franks red hot sauce
stir until coconut oil is melted and incorporated
add 1 tbsp coconut aminos
too hot? not hot enough?
add more Franks to taste
too hot? try adding a squeeze of fresh lemon
or a 1/2 tsp of coconut oil to dilute it

BBQ on med heat (350)
quick spray with Pam
place chicken on, allowing excess dressing to drip back into tupperware
cover lid
leave for 2-3 minutes
lift cover, turn tenders
and immediately brush with franks sauce
cover and allow to cook thru
adding sauce to each side when you flip
depending on the thickness of chicken
this could take up to 10 min

place on a tray and cover with aluminum foil
allow to rest for 5 min
