The Best Keto Buffalo Wings

The wonderful thing about buffalo wings is that chicken is carb-free and usually, so is buffalo sauce. Win-win!



  • 12 frozen chicken wings (I bought a giant… ok, an absurdly giant bag of buffalo wings at BJ’s and ziplocked them into 12-wing bags, so this recipe covers 12 wings.)
  • 4 tbsp salted butter
  • 1/4 cup of hot sauce (I’m a Frank’s Loyalist)
  • 1, minced fresh garlic clove
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (omit for less spicy wings)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 dash cracked black pepper


  1. 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(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.), and then sprinkle generously salt and pepper. Bake for about 45 minutes or until crispy and at least 165 degrees F.
  2. 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.
  3. Once melted, add the rest of the ingredients and mix together.
  4. When your wings are cooked, toss them in a bowl with sauce, until coated.
  5. Serve your keto buffalo wings alone, or with salad and celery, or coated with blue cheese crumbles and enjoy!
