  • 1¼ pounds chicken wings
  • 3 organic celery ribs
  • 1 or 2 organic carrots (about 6 ounces total)

  • Sun Basket ranch dressing (Greek yogurt - paleo mayo - garlic - Dijon mustard - kosher salt - black pepper - dried dill)

Chef's Tip

If you have a convection oven, heat it to 425°F with the fan on and place the wings on a wire rack on a sheet pan so the hot air can circulate around them for even cooking, plus you won’t need to flip them. If you don’t have a convection oven or a wire rack, roasting the wings right on the sheet pan works well; just make sure to flip the wings once while cooking so every part is exposed to the direct heat.

Ingredient IQ

Frank's RedHot cayenne pepper sauce lends a touch of heat to this customer favorite meal. Best known as the signature ingredient in classic buffalo wings, it’s a vinegar-based hot sauce that we love for its depth of flavor, tang, and spiciness.

Grill It

Prepare a medium-hot fire on one side of a grill. Set the chicken wings on the grill directly over the heat and cook, turning frequently, until starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer to indirect heat, close the grill, and cook, turning a few times, until lightly charred and cooked through, about 20 minutes longer.

Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Roast the chicken wings

Heat the oven to 450°F.
  • Pat the chicken wings dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
On a sheet pan, toss the chicken wings with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Spread in an even layer and roast, flipping once halfway through, until the skin is browned and the wings are cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes.
While the wings roast, prepare the remaining ingredients.

2

Prep the celery and carrots

  • Cut the celery in half lengthwise, then crosswise into 2-inch lengths.
  • Scrub or peel the carrots and trim the ends; cut the carrots lengthwise into quarters, then crosswise into 2-inch lengths.

3

Warm the cayenne pepper sauce

In a small sauce pot over medium heat, combine the butter and cayenne pepper sauce and heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter is melted and incorporated, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat, season to taste with salt and pepper, and cover to keep warm.

4

Finish the chicken wings

In a large bowl, working in batches if needed, toss together the chicken wings and cayenne pepper sauce, coating the wings completely. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the chicken wings to a serving bowl and arrange the celery, carrots, and tomatoes alongside. Serve the ranch dressing on the side for dipping.
