Crispy chicken has to be one of my favourite foods. There’s nothing quite like a good crispy wing to put a smile on everyone’s faces.

These Low-carb Lemon and Herb Chicken Wings are such a great keto dinner recipe. Ideal for Super Bowl night or to snuggle up to with a good Netflix box set.

I seared the chicken wings first for maximum flavour and then roasted them in the oven so they’re much healthier than fried. They’re dressed to impress in a simple butter, lemon and parsley sauce and then for the ultimate in crispness you can pop under the broiler too.

These low-carb lemon and parsley crispy chicken wings are a delicious way to boost your fat intake and keep the carbs super low.

How To Make Ultra Crispy Chicken Wings

If you want to take the crispiness to the next level, use this method for ultra crispy wings to first coner them in baking powder, then bake the wings on low to render the fats and finally to bake them on high to crisp them up.

I like to serve mine with easy veggie sides like Low-carb Pink Sauerkraut Slaw or Keto Russian Slaw! What would you serve yours with?😊
