I think chicken wings and football watching are meant to be together. But if you are following a strict gluten free diet, or have Celiac, hot wings are definitely off the table. Many restaurants contaminate their chicken wings with gluten, either by adding a flour batter to the wing, or by deep frying it in a shared fryer with breaded items. Prepackaged chicken wings typically have gluten ingredients and are rarely certified gluten free. Plus, more likely than not, they are deep fried and that is far from good for you!
If you want to enjoy a side of chicken wings along with football, then make your own! It’s quite easy to do and you only need three ingredients: Chicken wings, your favorite hot sauce, and melted butter (or vegan butter substitute like Earth Balance).
My version is baked – not deep fried – and they are just as crispy and delicious as you’d get in a restaurant. However, because I make them at home and control all the ingredients and baking style (meaning they’re not fried!), mine are naturally going to be healthier. Keep in mind that they are still wings so don’t expect them to be as healthy as kale!
So on game day, enjoy this wonderful Gluten Free Chicken Wings recipe. It’s so easy to make on you’re own than you might think; you’ll be kicking yourself for not figuring this out sooner!
