Sticky Baked Wings

Make sure you keep an extra stack of napkins nearby!

Chicken wings are the ultimate hand-held indulgence. They offer the perfect combination of gooey, sticky, finger-lickin’ goodness. The very thought of these tender little snacks is enough to make any mouth drool. Conventional wings get crispy skin and juicy meat from frying and a sodium-rich sauce. Unfortunately, this adds a truckload of calories, fat, and salt to your menu! Although they taste irresistible, these nutritional nightmares can drain you of energy and sabotage your weight loss goals.

Luckily, you can still enjoy mouthwatering wings without compromising a healthy diet by baking them! And no, oven-baked doesn’t mean bland, crisp-less meat that won’t hold sauce. Our healthified version calls for buffalo wings tossed in a tangy, spicy sauce. Apricot preserves pair with sriracha hot sauce for spicy-sweet depth. Soy sauce and olive oil are tossed in the mix, forming a bangin’ blend that makes these wings to die for. You’ll savor each bite of these irresistible, fall-off-the-bone sticky baked wings. Just make sure you keep an extra stack of napkins nearby!
