Hot Wings / Buffalo Wings

One of the best things about low carbing is the Buffalo Wings!!  We have these about once a week and the hubs is never late getting home from work on wings night. :)  This is a basic recipe using the tried and true Frank's Red Hot but I will post other sauce recipes in the future.  So many flavors to toss your wings in!  I follow the basic recipe on the back of the Frank's bottle because it's never steered me wrong.  No sense in changing perfection.


2 1/2 pounds of chicken wing pieces (I buy the frozen Kroger bag where they wings and drumetts are already separated and ready to go)
3/4 cup Franks RedHot Buffalo Wing Sauce

Bake wings in a preheated oven at 425 degrees for 1 hour.  I put them on a foil lined cookie sheet that I spray with butter flavored Pam.  They should be fully cooked and the skin crispy when done.  Toss in Franks RedHot and serve with blue cheese dressing if desired.
*You can also deep fry them for 12 minutes at 400 degrees but we actually prefer the oven method.

Now I'm not going to say you can gorge but I will say that you can eat TONS of wings and it's only trace carbs.  ENJOY!


  1. How many carbs are these?

  2. There also good if you put the hot sauce mixed with 1/4 stick of butter before you put in oven..then when they come out of oven heat in a deep fryer adding more hot sauce when they come out;)

  3. I'm from Buffalo, your first mistake is using frozen wings
