Buffalo Chicken HOLD the Wings & a Salad

Buffalo Chicken ‘Hold the Wings’

I cannot deny how much I love to eat Buffalo Chicken Wings. I enjoy them so much I could eat them weekly and not get sick of them.

You can bet if wings are on a menu of any restaurant we visit, we most definitely order them.

And if they are deliciously perfect, I’m happy to order more wings just for me to eat as my meal. To make a wing meal more complete, I order a small salad for that healthy balance.

In the past I’ve tinkered with some creative wing recipes in Little Kitchen. But no matter what crazy recipe I’ve come up with, I always make a traditional Buffalo Wing sauce.

If you’ve followed me here on my blog you know that I’m trying to keep myself accountable with my fitness goals for 2017.

I’m constantly aware of them as I’ve been at it for about 6 weeks. And I’m working hard to stay the course.

As much as I love wings, I can’t continue to eat fried or baked Buffalo Wings weekly without it sabotaging my realistic fitness goals I’ve set for myself.

Unless I came up with a creative way to eat more wings without actually eating wings.

I’ve tried the ground chicken or ground turkey buffalo bites. And those are good! I’ve got a recipe I can share here for those.

But I wanted to go a step further because I like wings (a lot!). And that’s when this recipe hit me on the forehead with a big “DUH!”
