No fryer here: these healthy buffalo wings are baked under the broiler to get crispy. Here's the recipe from star chef Ellie Krieger.
 

Learning Benefits

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs chicken wings, split at the joint
  • 1/4 cup cayenne pepper sauce, preferably Frank’s RedHot, plus more for serving
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 large ribs celery, cut into sticks

Preparation:

1. Preheat the broiler.

2. Place the wings in a large pot and fill the pot with enough water to cover the wings by about 2 inches. Bring to a boil, then continue to boil for 10 minutes. Drain.

3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the cayenne pepper sauce, lemon juice, and broth. Reserve.

4. Transfer the wings to a broiler pan and broil 5 to 6 inches from the flame, until the skin begins to blister and brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Turn the wings over and broil 4 to 5 minutes more.

5. Transfer the wings to a baking sheet, drizzle with the reserved sauce, and toss well to coat. Place the baking sheet under the broiler for 1 minute to heat the wings and sauce together.

6. Serve with extra hot sauce, celery sticks, and blue cheese dip.

Makes 4 servings.
