These Keto Korean Chicken Wings have so much flavor! Cooked in a skillet the wings get perfectly crispy before they get doused in a tangy korean style hot sauce.

Do you think this would work just as well with chicken breasts?


I don't see why not 😊 The marinade can be used for any chicken parts (thighs, breasts, legs or drumsticks). You will just need to adjust the cooking time. Boneless breasts & thighs can be cooked in a skillet but large bone-in parts are best baked.


These are my absolute favorite. I make them with drum sticks instead of wings and add a dollop of natural peanut butter.  


OMG. One of my favorite meals at Houlihans is their Thai Chili Wings. Those carbs are too high for my new Keto lifestyle, which was so disappointing. This dish SO scratches that itch!! They’re delicious and are now a recioe I plan to make weekly or more often. Thank you!!


Thank you for your lovely feedback!


Are the calories and macros for this recipe including sauce?


Hi Sean, yes the sauce is included! The only ingredients I wouldn't include would be marked as "optional" (no optional ingredients in this recipe) 😊
