When it comes to Whole 30 there are more and more amazing pre-made options available in stores and online. Tessamae’s BBQ Sauce has become the go to many Whole 30’ers and is available at many markets including Whole Foods Market. Then all you have to do, is add some chipotle chilis in adobo sauce to spice it up. Of course if you prefer your wings a little less hot, you can omit the chili peppers.

To make this gorgeous meal I simply pulled the Sun Basket bag with all the pre-measured ingredients out of my fridge…
…did a little slicing and chopping…
…and popped it all in the oven.
Forty minutes later we enjoyed these tender roasted chicken wings in a spicy chipotle BBQ sauce baked alongside sweet potatoes drizzled with a little salsa verde and only had to clean one pan!

The Recipe: Chipotle Roasted Chicken Wings With Sweet Potatoes and Salsa Verde
Tips and what you need: You can find paleo/W30 approved BBQ sauce online or in many stores. To make the sauce ‘chipotle sauce’ you will need gluten free chipotle in adobo sauce. They are usually available at the grocery store but if you can’t find them you can have them delivered to you door.
A quick and easy spicy meal! Use a store bought Paleo or Whole30 BBQ sauce and add chipotle peppers for a little zing! If you prefer your wings a little more mild, omit chipotle peppers.
- Whole 30 friends you will use dates:
- 6 large pitted dates
- 1/4 cup boiling water
- 1 cup bbq sauce (whole30 or paleo use a compliant sauce)
- 1 tablespoon chipotle chili in adobo sauce, finely minced
- 1 large garnet sweet potato frequently mislabeled as yams, 1/4" slices cut in half (half moon)
- 1 red onion peeled and thinly sliced (1/4" rounds)
- 3/4 pound chicken wings about 12
- 1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro plus more for garnish
- 1 clove garlic peeled finely minced
- juice of 1 lime
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- olive oil
- freshly ground pepper
- sea salt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and move oven rack to upper third of oven. Place parchment paper on cookie sheet. Set aside.
Make Sauce: combine BBQ sauce with minced chipotle chili in adobo. Whisk until smooth.
Slice sweet potatoes and cut in half. Making a half moon shape.
Peel onion and slice into 1/4 inch rounds.
Place onions and sweet potatoes on one side of parchment covered cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil until all veggies are glistening. Toss. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Place in oven for 15 minutes.
While veggies roast place wings in bowl, sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss with chipotle BBQ sauce. When potatoes have cooked for 15 minutes add chicken to other side of pan in a single layer and roast for 30 more minutes.
While chicken and potatoes cook, mince cilantro and garlic, then juice lime.
Combine cilantro, garlic and lime juice with 2 Tablespoons olive oil and 1/2 tsp cumin and whisk.
When chicken has cooked for 30 minutes remove from oven, toss sweet potatoes in salsa verde (optional, I tossed mine, my husband didn't) and serve!
