More healthier versions of traditional party appetizers I love are baked Mozzarella Sticks, a hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip and loaded baked Sweet Potato Skins.

Traditional buffalo wings are deep fried and made with lots of butter. These are broiled to reduce fat and calories and we eliminated the butter altogether. You can adjust the heat to your taste. Great for appetizers, lunch or dinner!

  1. Made these tonight. Turned out great.  Always enjoy your recipes. 

  2. I have to agree about not being light. Over 59% of calories is from fat.

  3. Very yummy recipe! I will definitely make again!! I used Noble Made brand buffalo sauce which has great ingredients.

    My one tip is to dry the wings before adding them to the marinade so you get a nice crunch.  🙂

  4. Just made these in our air fryer tonight.  They were really good.

  5. Could these be done in an air fryer? 

  6. I cooked these in my air fryer, 375 for about 18 minutes turning once. Great recipe and will try again

  7. Sorry, but 13g of fat per serving (and a serving is ONLY 2 wings — really?) is much too much fat to be considered low-fat. For someone on a medically necessary low-fat diet, this is not a viable recipe. Chicken wings are the culprit. Chicken breast tenders would bring the fat content down significantly. As far as I can see, the “lighter” part is eliminating butter from the sauce and broiling the wings instead of deep frying. Maybe a good start for folks watching their weight, but not really a game-changing recipe.

    • You’re mad about 2 full size wings for 204 calories? Not everyone is on a medically necessary low fat diet..if wings are too high in fat for you just move onto some of her other recipes.

  8. These were so good! I felt really good after eating them 😊 glad I have a recipe for hot wings! 

  9. Would there be a problem with letting these marinate longer than 30 minutes? Not sure if the vinegar would have a negative effect any longer than that.

  10. Way too salty. Couldn’t eat them. 

  11. I’m thinking of using an air fryer to cook these.  Would you recommend 400 degrees for 25 min? I’ve seen some say 380 x 24 min. Then 400 for 6 min.  

  12. Is the fat in grams with the skin?
