So the boyfriend and I have been depriving ourselves on serious diets lately with the summer quickly approaching and have really kicked our workouts into high gear.  With that said, we were craving some normalcy!!  I decided to cook a skinny version of buffalo chicken wings that I found on one of my favorite blogs, Gina’s Skinny Recipes, that are made without all the butter and deep frying normal chicken wings entail.  I broiled these to reduce the fat and added just enough spices to give them that great kick!  We loved how they turned out and decided they would be perfect this summer at all our tailgates or even as appetizers when our friends come over.  Pair these with my baked onion rings and you’ve satisfied that unhealthy craving without all the guilt!

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the hot sauce, vinegar, oregano, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper. Mix well and then place chicken wings in a large plastic bag and pour entire mixture into bag. Blend well and let them marinate for about 30 minutes to an hour.
