I bet you didn’t see this one coming! Most of the people I know love chicken wings and that includes me of course. However, for some reason it is mostly enjoyed while watching Super Bowl Game.
I enjoy mine while watching a horror movie, of course, my teeth pay the price for this, since I bite hard on those bones every time something scary pop up on the screen.
Making this (snack) light, wasn’t a pain really, but if you are a skin person, you will miss the crunch, sorry!
These wings are moist and full of flavor, if you stick to the serving size, you’ll be in the safe zone. I found that some sauces are too hot, others too tangy, so I’ve decided to make my own.
Remember, adding your favorite herbs or spices will not add calories to this dish, so be creative.
