Wednesday Wing Night Anyone?

Standard

Who doesn’t love wings?

The problem is no one associates wings with being healthy.

Unless made the right way

These wings are only 70 calories  (15 calories from fat)

Prep Time:30 min
Start to Finish:1 hr 15 min
makes:12 servings (2 wings and 1 tablespoon sauce each)

INGREDIENTS

wings:

2 lb chicken wing drummettes (about 24)
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons red pepper sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Paprika
Celery sticks, if desired

sauce:

1/3 cup reduced-fat cottage cheese
1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon crumbled blue cheese
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1 clove garlic, finely chopped

DIRECTIONS

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil. Remove skin from chicken.
2. In resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix honey, ketchup, pepper sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Add chicken. Seal bag; refrigerate at least 15 minutes but no longer than 24 hours, turning occasionally.
3. Place chicken in pan; sprinkle with paprika. Bake uncovered about 30 minutes or until crisp and juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.
4. Meanwhile, in blender or food processor, place cottage cheese, vinegar, milk, half of the blue cheese, the white pepper and garlic. Cover and blend on low speed until smooth and creamy. Spoon into serving dish. Stir in remaining blue cheese. Cover; refrigerate until serving. Serve chicken wings with sauce and celery sticks.

These wings do take time, but they’re worth it!

They’re not too difficult to make, just follow the directions and you’ll be fine.  Having someone aid in the process of cooking them makes it easier and helps cut down on some time.

You don’t need to make the sauce if you don’t like it.  Also, play around with some of the ingredients.  Not all of them need to be used depending on how you like your wings.  Spices can also be added if you like them spicy.

I generally don’t like dealing with chicken, so removing the skin wasn’t appealing to me.  I had someone help me with that.

Other than that, these surprisingly weren’t challenging to make.

It’s worth the process since they’re only 70 calories.  Places you order wings from cannot compete with that!

I feel like making them will get easier and more successful the more you make them.

Enjoy!
