The Best Keto Buffalo Wings
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’m obsessed with buffalo wings, and that I can sweet talk any good restaurant into giving me their buffalo wings un-breaded.
Like Outback Steakhouse, for example, (but not Texas Roadhouse, who refused).
And more recently I bought the Ninja Fryer to make my own. I had been wanting one for a while, because it supposedly cooks in 40% less time so that you get less oils in your food. Well, I was at Target for the first time in about two years, amazed at all the cool kitchen things they have these days, and then I saw the fryer, which was on sale for $30 off ($99 normally). SOLD! Actually, it wasn’t that simple, they were sold out and I had to drive across the (tiny) state (of Rhode Island) to get another one, but you get the idea.
Before going keto, I used to order buffalo wings at every restaurant I went to. Now I’m lucky if half the time they’re not breaded and that the other half of the time, they aren’t coming from the freezer pre-breaded.
So I’ve taken it upon myself to perfect a keto buffalo wing recipe! I think it’s pretty perfect, but I’ll let you be the judge and let me know what you think.
I made a few batches this weekend because the fam was visiting to watch the Patriots. It worked like a charm. I spent a lot of time figuring out what the best kind of oil would be because I didn’t want to use vegetable oil. It’s expensive, but I got a vat of Peanut Oil because the internets told me it was healthiest choice.
The wonderful thing about buffalo wings is that chicken is carb-free and usually, so is buffalo sauce. Win-win!
I bought a giant… ok, absurdly giant bag of buffalo wings at BJ’s and ziplock’d them into 12-wing bags, so this recipe covers 12 wings.
Fry or bake your wings according to the instructions that came with your wings. Baking typically means baking at 425 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until well cooked. You could eat alone, with a salad, or with a bit of celery and some good blue cheese dressing.
