Baked Chicken Wings

Baked Chicken Wings

Baked Chicken Wings are a healthier twist on a bar food classic. What everyone loves about fried wings is the extra crispy outside and juicy inside and all smothered in hot, spicy wing sauce. Baking this naturally gluten-free snack is still incredibly crispy and juicy while cutting out the excess oil.

Let’s talk gluten-free wing sauce. My favorite wing sauces are Wing Time Medium and Bella’s Spicy Garlic Wing Saucewhich I purchased at my local Whole Foods. There are several other brands that are gluten-free, such as Stubb’s, Franks’s Red Hot and Texas Pete Hot Sauce. Instead of traditional wings, try using BBQ sauce or even gluten-free teriyaki sauce. Serve this delicious snack with celery and carrots sticks, blue cheese and ranch dressings for dipping and of course, lots and lots of napkins.
