"Sticky Portuguese Paleo Chicken Wings"

1-Wash and pat dry the chicken wings.

2-Combine marinade ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add chicken wings and mix through with your hands, coating each wing thoroughly with the mixture. Ideally, leave to marinate for about an hour. Otherwise, get to cooking.

3-Heat a tablespoon of coconut oil or some ghee in a frying pan to medium hot. Place chicken wings skin side up first. Don't overcrowd the pan as we don't want to stew them. Cook on medium heat for six minutes. After about two minutes of cooking, cover the pan with a lid.

4-After six minutes, turn the wings over and add a little more oil if needed. Once again, cook uncovered for about two minutes and then with a lid on for about four minutes.

5-Covering the pan with a lid provides a little steaming environment, which keeps the wings nice and soft. Make sure the heat is not too high as we don't want to burn the wings.

6-Serve with some greens and extra lemon on the side.
