I was out at lunch with a friend the other day and he ordered buffalo wings – it occurred to me that these are naturally low carb anyway, so I helped myself to one. Or two. And although you could probably use any old buffalo wings recipe, I didn't see why I shouldn't add it here – just to remind you of this tasty chicken dish!

How to Make Low Carb Buffalo Wings
Prepare the wings by using sharp kitchen shears to cut off (and discard) the tips. Then bend the remaining wing in the opposite direction to expose the joint, and cut along that area to divide the wing into drumette and wingette. Pat the wings dry with paper towels.
Place some baking powder into a large plastic bag, together with some salt and pepper. The baking powder really helps to get a crispy skin!
Add the wings and massage them in the bag so that they are evenly coated.
Place the wings on a baking sheet lined with a wire rack.
Roast in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the wings are cooked through.
Meanwhile, combine hot sauce, melted butter, and Worcestershire sauce in a large bowl. Add the cooked wings and turn to coat in the sauce.
Garnish with green onions or chives, and serve with ranch, sour cream, or blue cheese dressing for dipping.
