  • 4-5 whole turkey wings cut off wing tips (you can save to add to homemade soup or discard.) Cut drumlette apart from the flat middle at the joint.
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 2 1/2 cups gluten free chicken broth
  • For Homemade Cranberry Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup reserved broth from baking dish
  • 1/2 cup gluten free balsamic vinegar
  • 12 ounces cranberries
  • 4 tablespoons butter


  • Add olive oil to your baking dish. Then place wings in the dish. Drizzle with lemon juice.
  • Combine paprika, garlic powder, parsley and salt in a small bowl. Rub seasonings into the wings. Sprinkle garlic and onion around.
  • Cover and set in the refrigerator for one or two hours.
  • When you’re ready to cook, preheat your oven to 350℉.
  • Pour chicken broth over the wings, cover, and bake for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Then transfer the wings to a broiling pan and brush them with some extra virgin olive oil. Reserve the broth for later for sauce.
  • Turn up the oven to 500℉. Bake for just 10 minutes more until golden.
  • For Homemade Cranberry Sauce:
    Meanwhile, wash your cranberries under cool water.
    Then simply add 1/2 cup of the reserved seasoned broth from the baking dish along with balsamic vinegar and cranberries to a sauce pan.
    Bring it to a rolling boil and then turn down to medium for about 15 minutes. Stir occasionally as the cranberries pop and your sauce thickens.
    Stir in butter. Pour sauce over wings and serve.


  • Turkey wings have three parts: the drumette, the flat middle, and the tips. If your wings come with the tips, cut them off. You can save them to add to homemade soup if you'd like or just discard.
    Now cut the drumettes apart from the flat portion at the joint. If you don't feel like wrestling with turkey wings, this is something you could ask your butcher to do for you. One slap with his cleaver and it would be done.
  • Low-carb option - Turkey wings have zero carbs. So if you're following a low-carb way of eating, skip the cranberry sauce.
