Clean Eating Spicy Buffalo Wings

clean eating, spice buffalo wings, appetizersThis is a recipe I found on The Gracious Pantry website and made for the Super Bowl. I liked the tenders most! It was really quick and easy to make! Perfect for when you want to bring a clean app to not so clean eating people. I substituted agave nectar for the honey.The Recipe makes 8 servings (about 1/2 lb each).

Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Frank's Hot Sauce (or any clean hot sauce you like, low sodium is best)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder 
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 cup honey (if you prefer a less spicy wing) or 1/4 cup (if you prefer a more spicy wing)
  • 2 teaspoons molasses 
  • 1 teaspoon paprika 
  • 1/2 cup clean BBQ sauce

Chicken Ingredients:

  • 4 LBS chicken wings
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder 


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a large casserole dish (you may need 2 dishes depending on the size you have) with foil. You will be wrapping the chicken completely in foil, so allow enough to completely cover the chicken all the way around.
  3. Place your wings in the foil and be sure they are single layered. 
  4. Pour the oil over the chicken and mix the chicken in the dish to completely coat it with oil.
  5. Sprinkle the chicken generously with garlic powder and onion powder. (the measurements given are only suggestions, use more if you'd like!)
  6. Pack the foil around the chicken so that it is sealed on the sides. 
  7. Bake in the oven for 50 minutes.
  8. While the chicken bakes, combine all sauce ingredients in a medium mixing bowl, whisk...(be sure to whisk again right before pouring on your chicken).
  9. Remove the wings from the oven, open the foil (careful not to burn yourself with the steam), pour off any liquid in the bottom of the foil. 
  10. Pour your sauce over the chicken. 
  11. Turn your oven to broil. 
  12. Place the chicken back in the oven UNCOVERED for 10 minutes. Watch the wings carefully. If they need to be removed in less than 10 minutes, do so. 
  13. Remove from the oven, allow to cool and place in a serving dish, be sure to pour any sauce left behind in the dish over the chicken.
  14. Enjoy!!
