  • 10 whole chicken wings

Tikka Marinade

  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons ground chili pepper
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

Citrus Cilantro Sauce

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
  • 1-2 tablespoons erythritol (or your favorite sweetener)


  • Preparation: With a sharp knife, separate the wings into wings and drummets. Discard the tips or save for broth. Combine the ingredients for the Tikka Chicken marinade in a large plastic zip-loc bag and add the wings. Marinate for 24-48 hours.
  • Grill the Wings: Remove the Tikka Chicken wings from the marinade and blot with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Preheat the grill. Oil the grill grate and cook the wings until cooked through - about 10 minutes per side.
  • Sauce: While the wings are cooking, combine the ingredients for the sauce in a blender and blend. Taste. Adjust seasoning. It should taste both tart and sweet.
  • Remove the chicken tikka wings from the grill and either pour the sauce over and serve or serve the sauce on the side. Makes 20 wing pieces and serves 4. 
  • Oven Method: Place chicken wings on a sheet pan and spread out. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes (or until cooked through) and finish under the broiler for a few minutes more until the wings have a nice color on them.
