Air Fryer Teriyaki Chicken Wings ~ Gluten Free

 Air Fryer Teriyaki Chicken Wings ~ Great Super Bowl Snack

We absolutely love how good Chicken Wings come out of an Air Fryer. They are easy to make and are delicious.

I made the Chicken Wings Gluten Free using Gluten Free Tamari Sauce.

These will make a great Super Bowl Snack. 

Air Fryer Teriyaki Chicken Wings

I bought Frozen Chicken Wings that the Tips were cut off and they were cut into sections. Defrost over night in the Refrigerator.

I used 6 Defrosted Chicken wings a total of 12 Pieces
Rinse in a Colander and dry with a paper towel.

Place in a Food Storage Baggie
Pour in the Marinate and mix around so that all the chicken wings are coated
¾ Cup of Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce (I Used San-J) or use Soy Sauce
¼ Cup Orange Juice
Garlic Paste to taste
Ginger Paste to taste
Marinate 1-2 hours turning every 15 minutes

Line the Air Fryer basket with foil leaving a 1” gap open on all sides.
Pre-heat Air Fryer to 350* for 5 minutes
Spray the foil and pan lightly with cooking spray. I use a mister.
Layer the Wings in the Pan

Air Fry for 10 minutes then turn the wings over
Continue another 10 minutes turn over again
Check in 5 minutes to see if they are done.
I use a digital Thermometer. Cook until 165* internal temperature.

Mine took 25 minutes.

Steel Cut Oats with Chia and Flax Seeds ~ Gluten Free

Steel Cut Oats with Chia and Flax Seeds

In a medium sauce pan:
Boil 4 Cups Water
½ tsp. Salt
1-2 tsp Cinnamon or Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 Cup Steel Cut Oats
Stir using a wooden spoon and reduce heat to Medium Low uncovered
Simmer 20 minutes 
stirring every 5 Minutes or until the water is absorbed

¼ Cup Chia Seeds
¼ Cup Ground Flax Seed Meal
using a Wire Whisk mix together to incooperate it so it doesn't lump up and simmer another 3-5 minutes

Remove from heat and let sit 5 minutes.

I use an ice cream scoop to help measure into mason jars.
In the Video I used 4 Jars but have now changed it to 5 jars as it was very filling for me.

Top each jar with Frozen or fresh fruit of your choice

Cover and place in the refrigerator.

When ready to serve pull out a jar, remove the cover.

Microwave until warm. Each microwave is different. It takes about 1-1/4 minutes to heat in mine.

Give it a stir.

I add a little Unsweetened Almond milk
Sprinkle on any toppings of your choice:
Mixed Nuts
Hemp Seeds
Cacao Nips
I do not add any honey or Maple Syrup as the Fruit makes it sweet enough for me but you can add that if you like it sweeter.

I used all Bobs Red Mill Gluten Free Products
