Our American Tradition

My family has a super-American tradition. Every time a new Marvel movie comes out, we go out to eat at Buffalo Wild Wings and, then, go to the movie theater next door to watch Iron Man and his friends save the world.

We gorge ourselves on hot wings and mini corndogs and have an All- American good time.

Even after I started Keto, we kept this tradition, because many of the traditional wings were already low-carb.

I Tend to Ruin Restaurants

However, when we went a few weeks ago (to see Captain Marvel), I plugged my meal into my carb tracking app, and the wings were ALL I was allowed to eat that day.

The single meal was nearly 1600 calories!

I had already planned to go over for the “special occasion,” so the calories didn’t bother me. It did start needling me, and it piqued my curiosity.

I kept thinking, “I wonder what oil they fry in? What spices do they use for this sauce? I ‘ll bet I can make this with fewer calories!”

I went home and started trying to mimic the Chipotle BBQ Seasoning, and within a few tries got pretty close.

Then, it was to choose the oils and lower the calories. It took several times to get it just right!

This has since become one of my husband’s favorites.

Follow this process, and you can have your own super-healthy keto wings that taste just like they came from a restaurant.

Ingredients include:

  • Garlic powder
  • Salt
  • Onion Powder
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Chipotle Pepper

Step One: Make Dry Rub

The first step is to mix the dry rub ingredients together. Use the recipe for the dry rub here.

Step Two: Prepare Chicken Wings

After defrosting your chicken wings, you will need to rinse them and clean them. This is a very important step and a bonus to making your wings at home.

You know exactly what shape they were in when you fried them.

After you clean them, add a little bit of salt to them.

Step Three: Fry the Wings

Heat the 1/3 cup of coconut oil in a deep frying pan over medium heat.

If you’re not used to cooking with coconut oil, it is important that you don’t heat the coconut oil on high heat, because it burns much more easily than vegetable oil.

Once the oil is hot, add the wings. Be careful not to fill the pan so full you can’t flip the wings.

I cook the wings for twenty minutes total, flipping them every five minutes.

The wings will be golden brown when cooked to perfection.

You can easily tell when the chicken is done because it will start to pull up off the bone on the ends.

Step 4: Dust with Chipotle BBQ Dry Rub

Do not be stingy with the dry rub at this point. Make sure you get all sides of the wings generously.

Step 5: Serve Chipotle BBQ Wings

These wings are delicious served with natural bleu cheese or ranch dressing.

I also like to add carrots and celery sticks, just like you’d get at Buffalo Wild Wings.
