These Keto Chicken Wings are oven-baked yet so crispy, and taste as if you got them from 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.
Personally, I only split mine into two pieces– the drumette and the flat/tip. I prefer leaving the tip attached to the flat because you will get some crispy chicken skin on there. Though 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 diet-friendly. Also as an appetizer on 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.
