Crispy, baked Keto Buffalo Chicken Wings perfect for an easy appetizer! All you need is 3 ingredients and these keto buffalo chicken wings are ready in under 45 minutes!
First things first is make sure your chicken wings are defrosted! If they are frozen, just make sure to put them in cold water and let them defrost. Once they are defrosted, pat them dry with paper towels and place them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
It’s SUCH an easy recipe cause you only need these 3 ingredients (plus spices!):
– chicken wings
– your favorite hot sauce
– sea salt & garlic powder!
Make your creamy buffalo sauce on the stove top while your wings get perfectly, crispy and golden.
All you need here is hot sauce (I love using Frank’s RedHot) and butter (can I recommend Kerrygold cause it’s the best).
See, I told you they’d come out perfectly crispy.
That’s why these wings are keto cause they don’t need anything else on them to get them crispy! Just a little bit of sea salt, garlic powder and the skin comes out exactly the way you want it.
And then once your wings have baked for 40 minutes all you do is place them in the same pan as the buffalo sauce and coat them all around! Serve with your favorite dipping sauce like blue cheese dressing or ranch and top it off with some fresh cilantro.
I think these would be the perfect party or game day appetizer!
I’d suggest making a few batches of these 🙂 And let me tell you, even the fans of the breaded buffalo wings will absolutely love these.
One of my husband’s favorite food is buffalo chicken wings and he goes crazy over these! I’ve finally made them keto too which I think makes the recipe easier since you don’t have to coat the wings in anything but hot sauce!
These are so juicy, buttery and just enough spice to round out these keto buffalo chicken wings. They are also super good the next day too, that is, if you have any leftovers.
Keto Buffalo Chicken Wings
- 12 chicken wings (about 1.5 pounds)

- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- fresh cilantro (optional)
Preheat oven to 425.
Pat chicken wings dry with a paper towel. Assemble on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with sea salt and garlic powder. Bake at 425 for 40 minutes (or until desired crispiness)
Add the hot sauce and butter to a pan on low-medium heat until melted.
Once chicken wings are baked, add them to the buffalo sauce until fully coated.
