These easy keto dinners are low-carb, tasty, and filling. Between the creamy Tuscan chicken and the cheesy cauliflower breadsticks, there’s a lot to choose from. But Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wings are my favorite! Try them out tonight!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds chicken wings

  • 1/2 cup Frank’s® RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce

  • 1/3 cup melted butter or margarine

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Add a rack on top of the tray and lightly spray with cooking oil.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut the wings at the joints and throw away the tips. Arrange the wings on the rack, leaving a couple of inches between each one.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the chicken is cooked and the skin is crisp. Flip the wings over halfway through to ensure even cooking.
  • While the wings are in the oven, mix Frank’s® RedHot® sauce with the melted butter in a large bowl.
  • Carefully take the wings out of the oven and transfer them into the large bowl. Gently toss to coat the wings evenly in the sauce.
  • Serve with a cool dipping sauce and enjoy!

Notes

  • Pat the chicken wings dry before baking to help the skin crisp up nicely in the oven.
  • Use a wire rack on your baking sheet to allow heat circulation for evenly crispy wings.
