Oh my have I got a treat for you today?😉

If you love chicken wings you’re going to love these bad boys. These keto Buffalo Chicken Wings are crispy, sticky and packed to the brim with flavour. Just as a good chicken wing should be.

Perfect for Super Bowl night or for nibbling with Netflix. I like to serve them with our Cilantro Lime Slaw or Broccoli Stem Bacon Slaw and creamy dip such as Garlic Mayonnaise, Easy Ranch Dressing or Blue Cheese Dressing (recipe from the KetoDiet App).

Can you eat them without licking your lips? Dare ya… double dare ya!

How to Make Ultra Crispy Chicken Wings

If you like your chicken wings really crispy, simply follow the famous Cook's Illustrated technique that we used in our Keto Chile-Lime Chicken Wings. The way to make the wings extra crispy is to first bake them on low only coated in the dry seasoning and leaving out the buffalo sauce. This will render the fat so you can then bake them on high to crisp up. Serve the buffalo sauce as a side.
