I've always loved chicken wing sauce but I found many recipes to be too buttery and greasy, too salty and too vinegary.

In this recipe I used slightly less butter, less vinegar, and added some coconut aminos for subtle sweetness. I kept the Worcestershire sauce for the perfect umami.

For the hot pepper sauce you can use Frank's Redhot Sauce which is sugar-free, or you can use store-bought Sriracha sauce, although many brands have added sugar. If you can't find sugar-free, you can use our homemade Sriracha Sauce.

Once you make this DIY Buffalo Sauce, follow this Chili-Lime Crispy Chicken Wings recipe for ultra crispy chicken wings and then use the buffalo sauce for dipping instead of the sweet chilli sauce. Alternatively, you can coat the wings with the sauce before baking, just like we did in this Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings recipe.

This recipe will make slightly over a cup, which is about 8 servings if you use 2 tablespoons per serving. I listed values per tablespoon in the nutrition facts below for simplicity.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
