AIP no soy chicken wings

I have to admit that cooking Asian food without soy sauce was one of the biggest challenge when I started AIP.  Coconut Amino is an options but I find it a bit sweet depending on the brand. Fish sauce is very tasty but has a distinct flavor all of its own. My 10yo's comment when he saw these were " They look amazing!" I have to agree I am quite proud my AIP 4 spice seasoning combined with kombucha vinegar and molasses could give such a beautiful " soy sauce" effect and flavor. I use the whole chicken wings but you can choose the wingette or drummer as your please. This recipe makes a great appetizer or a dish on it's own and they will go fast.  

AIP no soy chicken wings

Serves 4      Prep time 10 mins + at least 30 mins marinade time     Cook time 2 hours 5 mins

  • 3 lbs whole chicken wings 
  • 1 c water

  • 1 c Kombucha vinegar or ACV
  • 1 tsp molasses
  • 2 tsp himalayan pink salt
  • 1 tsp AIP 4 spice seasoning
  • 10-20 stalk flowering chives ( or chives), chopped 

  1. Mix marinade ingredients together and put into a zip lock bag with chicken wings. Squeeze as much air out of bag before closing it. This ensures all surface on chicken wings are in contact with marinade.
  2. Marinade for at least 30 mins in fridge
  3. Preheat oven to 275F 
  4. Place chicken wings on wire rack and pour marinade in the bottom of pan along with one cup of water
  5. Bake for 2 hours flipping over once at an hour time
  6. Pour drippings out and brush over chicken wings
  7. Broil for 5 mins


  1. My favorite chicken wing recipe by far! I especially love that there is practically no added sugar involved to get the sweet and sticky texture that makes wings so fun to enjoy :)

    1. Thanks. I am glad you like it. I have been using molasses more often to add color and flavor to my dishes.
