I make this recipe for Cilantro Maple Sriracha Chicken Wings all the time and then I say to myself, “this is soooooo good!  Must eat more….

This is an exclusive sneak peek recipe is from my new cookbook, Ditch the Wheat, and it’s become a weekly favorite for me.  Plus it’s really easy to throw together.  I know it will be one of your go-to weeknight recipes.

I love scorching-hot sauces on my chicken wings—the kind where you know it’s torture to take another bite, but you do it anyway because you love the taste.

For this recipe, I used my favorite hot sauce, Sriracha, and sweetened it a little with maple syrup. The cilantro will help cool down your mouth.

p.s. I still make this even if I don’t have cilantro on hand.  It’s just soooo yummy!

There’s so many dinner ideas in the cookbook! It’s a general Paleo cookbook so you’ll find a bit of everything like pizza, lasagna (no zucchini lasagna noodles! ick!!! Noodles are made with a dough), soup, baked goods, desserts, and a breakfast chapter.  This is a picture of just some of the other dinner recipes.
