Sweet and Sour Crispy Chicken Wings. Does a delicious plate of hot Sweet and Sour Crispy Chicken Wings that also happens to be free of nightshades, dairy, sugar, AND soy sound too good to be true? Well, it’s not, thanks to the amazing Brandi Mackenzie! She says,
“Since you cut out inflammatory foods, do you miss the sticky, crunchy, yummy mess of hot wings? Because I did… until now! I always liked a terryaki style, sweet with heat kind-of wing. So, I’ve created one that covers those flavors. It is sweet yet has a lot of depth in a briney, salty, sour kind-of way. However, this is autoimmune paleo friendly, so it’s free of nightshades, dairy, sugar and soy!”

Chicken generally includes low fat in the meat itself (castrated roosters excluded). The fat is highly concentrated on the skin. A 100g serving of baked chicken breast contains 4 grams of fat and 31 grams of protein, compared to 10 grams of fat and 27 grams of protein for the same portion of broiled, lean skirt steak
