Making the Chicken Wing Rub

  • In a large bowl, add the garlic powder, onion powder, and baking powder to chicken. Add in a pinch of salt, and black pepper. Mix and rub with hands to ensure the chicken wings are evenly coated with powder mixes.

Baking the Chicken Wings

  • Line an oven pan with a sheet of aluminum foil.
  • Place the dry rubbed wings onto the pan. Line them up one by one. Make sure to give them some space between one another. Move into the oven and heat for 45 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

Making the Buffalo Sauce

  • While the chicken is baking in the oven, we will make the buffalo sauce.

  • Mix together the hot sauce, monk fruit sweetener, and butter.
    Pro tip: To get the butter to liquefy, microwave the butter for about 20-30 seconds.

Tossing the Chicken Wings

  • Once 45 minutes is up your chicken wings should look like this.

  • Remove the chicken from the oven and into a new large bowl.

  • Pour the Buffalo Sauce onto the chicken and toss in an upward motion until evenly glazed. You can use a spoon to mix if tossing is too difficult.
    Pro tip: If you want to ease the tossing process, cover the bowl and shake the chicken in with the sauce.

Dressing and sides

  • Now that the chicken wings have been tossed, move them over to a large plate. Pair them with anything you like. They are commonly dipped in blue cheese or ranch dressing which are both keto friendly. Celery is also a nice addition.
  • Enjoy!
