This recipe serves 4. 

Equipment Needed:



  • 1 cup Stout Beer
  • 1 Teaspoon Turmeric Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup Skim Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Paprika
  • 1 Tablespoon Stevia (or Sugar)
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 2/3 Cups Almond Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Thyme
  • 2/3 Cup Avocado Oil
  • 1 Pound Assorted Chicken Wings
  • 2/3 Cup Habanero Peppers
  • 2 Tablespoons Onion Powder



  1. Let’s start with the Beer Batter Mix
    1. Combine Stout Beer, Vinegar, Skim Milk, Stevia, Paprika, Salt, Thyme, and 1/3 Cup Almond Flour in KitchenAid Mixer or Medium Bowl. 
    2. Mix all contents well.
    3. Drink any remaining Stout Beer. 
  2. Pureé habenero peppers in blender with onion powder.
  3. Heat up Avocado Oil in pan.
  4. While heating oil, toss Chicken with Almond Flour using another Medium bowl. Make sure all sides are coated on chicken pieces. 
  5. Dip chicken pieces in Beer Batter Mix. Just enough to coat chicken. 
  6. Place some of the chicken in the heated frying pan with the oil. Do not let the pieces touch each other. It may be necessary to cook in batches. 
  7. Casually turn pieces as the sides of each piece brown. This process should be about 4 to 5 minutes for each batch of wings. 
  8. Place batches on plate covered in paper towel. 
  9. Dip wings in puréed Habanero pepper mix. Toss around until all are covered completely, or as much as your can handle.

The wings can be served with ranch or blue cheese dips. 


  • To make this recipe vegan, replace chicken with tofu and other ingredients as necessary with Vegan alternative, or follow the similar recipe from the book Street Vegan by Adam Sobel, from which this recipe is inspired by.  
  • Fries or vegetables would be a perfect side for these wings.
  • You can substitute a lesser pepper, like jalapeño if you want less heat.
