Recipe: Keto Buffalo Chicken Wings

Ingredients:

For the Chicken Wings:
  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
For the Buffalo Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce (choose a low-carb option)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to your spice preference)

Instructions:

1. Prepare the Chicken Wings:
  • Preheat your oven to 250°F (120°C).
  • Line a baking sheet with a wire rack. This will help the wings cook evenly and stay crispy.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the baking powder, salt, and black pepper.
  • Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture. This is essential for achieving crispy wings.
  • Toss the dry wings in the baking powder mixture until they are evenly coated.
  • Place the coated wings on the wire rack, making sure they are not touching. This allows air to circulate around them.
  • Bake the wings in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. This initial low-temperature baking helps to render the fat out of the skin, making them crispy.
2. Increase the Oven Temperature:
  • After the initial baking, increase the oven temperature to 450°F (230°C).
  • Continue baking the wings for an additional 20-30 minutes, or until they become golden brown and crispy.
3. Prepare the Buffalo Sauce:
  • In a saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over low heat.
  • Stir in the hot sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Mix well to create the buffalo sauce.
4. Coat the Wings:
  • In a large bowl, toss the baked wings with the prepared buffalo sauce until they are thoroughly coated.
5. Serve:
  • Serve your Keto Buffalo Chicken Wings with celery sticks and keto-friendly ranch or blue cheese dressing.
