These Keto Chicken Wings are oven-baked yet so crispy and taste as if you got them from your favorite restaurant.  I first made them for several of our friends, and these keto crispy chicken wings were gone in minutes.  I bet you and your loved ones and friends will enjoy them too!

Break Down of Chicken Wings

If you’re buying chicken wings initially, you could be surprised cause they look different than you receive them at a restaurant.  You’ll simply need to break them down yourself, which will be very easy.

Chicken wings are composed of three parts:

  • Drumette – This part is attached to the wing of the chicken and seems like a tiny drumstick.
  • Flat (or wingette) – in the middle area of the chicken wing, and appears like a flat oval.
  • Tip – This is actually the very end of the chicken wing, and it is pointy.

It’s hard to think that chicken wings could ever get crispy without the aid of flour or several other carb-rich ingredients, but with this specific keto chicken wings recipe, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Keto Chicken Wings

Personally, I only split mine into two pieces– the drumette and the flat/tip.  I prefer leaving a tip attached to the flat because you will get some crispy chicken skin on there. However, there’s very little meat underneath.  If you like cutting the tip the end} off, that’s ok also!

These keto chicken wings are perfect as a family meal, served with vegetables that are low-carb and diet-friendly. Also, as an appetizer at a party. They’re really easy to make. Simply follow the instructions. Combine and mix the seasoning with the wings and bake them in the oven. It took me only 10 minutes to finish these chicken wings. You will have to flip the wings a few times.

Keto Chicken Wings Recipe


  • 3 pounds of Chicken Wings
  • 4 Tablespoons of melted butter (use ghee for a paleo recipe)
  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/3 teaspoon of Black Pepper
  • 1/3 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 of a Chilli Pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon of Ginger Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon of Swerve Brown Sugar Substitute
  • Juice of 1 whole Lemon
  • 1 Tablespoon of Soy Sauce (use Tamari for a gluten-free option)
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon of chopped fresh Parsley

For the Keto BBQ Sauce:

  • 1 cup of this homemade sugar-free ketchup
  • 2 Tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce (check for a sugar-free version)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Swerve Brown Sugar Substitute
  • 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to 400º F (200º C).

  2. Prepare the Baking Sheet: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place lemon slices on it. This will infuse the chicken with a subtle citrus flavor as it cooks.

  3. Dry the Chicken Wings: Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels, pressing firmly to remove as much moisture as possible. This step is crucial for achieving crispy skin.

  4. Season the Wings: In a large bowl, combine the chicken wings with melted butter, olive oil, minced garlic, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, chopped chili pepper, ginger powder, Swerve brown sugar substitute, lemon juice, soy sauce, and lime juice. Toss well to ensure each wing is evenly coated.

  5. Arrange the Wings: Place the wings in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.

  6. Bake: Cook the wings in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until they are browned and crispy. Use tongs to flip them a couple of times during baking for even cooking.

  7. Prepare the Keto BBQ Sauce: While the wings are baking, prepare the keto BBQ sauce by combining all the sauce ingredients in a saucepan. Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens (about 10-15 minutes).

  8. Finish the Wings: Once the wings are cooked, remove them from the oven and transfer them to a serving platter. Drizzle with the keto BBQ sauce or serve it on the side for dipping. Garnish with chopped parsley.

  9. Serve: Enjoy your Keto Chicken Wings with a side of lemon and lime wedges for an extra zesty kick!
