Have you been searching for the best keto buffalo wings? Well, here they are! Approximately 1 net carb in the whole batch if you use Franks, (the carb is for the garlic).

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.

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). So I’ve taken it upon myself to perfect a keto buffalo wings recipe! I think it’s pretty perfect, but I’ll let you be the judge and let me know what you think.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Using a wire rack, with a baking dish or sheet underneath, spread wings evenly. The wire rack will keep them from getting soggy on the bottom. Rub with your oil of choice, and then sprinkle generously salt and pepper. Bake for about 45 minutes or until crispy and at least 165 degrees F.


While your chicken wings are baking (or frying, cook whichever way you prefer), add your garlic and butter to a small saucepan over medium-low heat until hot and melted.


Once melted, add the rest of the ingredients and mix together.


When your wings are cooked, toss them in a bowl with sauce, until coated.


Serve alone, or with salad and celery, or coated with blue cheese crumbles.

Four wings!! Surely you jest! I can go through 10 wings in a sitting without even thinking about it! Obviously they had better be extremely low carb! PS I have lost 30 lb in the past 4 months on keto, just in case you think I’m eating too many calories!

The wings I found in the store were terrible, so I bought thighs instead. They also worked perfectly. Nice and crispy. Do you know how long the sauce would keep if we just made that and kept it in the fridge? I think this would be delicious on shrimp as well.

I just made these. Thought they came out great just a bit salty. I think the next time I will omit the salt….but very happy with the flavor

Any oil will do, it’s just to add crispiness. Maybe not coconut because the flavors will compete, but I believe I’ve used olive oil, ghee, avocado oil, and they all work the same.

I’m a wee bit confused at step 1. Do you bake at the 400 degrees? What is the 165 degrees at the end? Could you explain the 2 temperatures

New to keto and want to make sure I understand carb count… the carb count displayed in the nutritional information is per serving, correct?

Just made these and my husband loved your sauce! I cooked the wings just like you said and my whole house was full of smoke…alarms going off and all!

This is exactly how I make mine! It just doesn’t get any better, except for those blue cheese crumbles though! Omgosh! It has me drooling! 🤤 That looks ah-maz-ing! Is Wicked Stuffed your name on insta too? I’d like to give you follow!

There is one at the bottom of the page or the side of the recipe depending on your browser, but I recommend to get the best print out version. 🙂
