Geoff and I love Buffalo Wings. When I learned how easy they were to make, and how diet friendly they are for South Beach, I began to make them quite frequently. We have these often during the football season while we watch our favorite games.
2 1/2 lbs chicken wings
3/4 cup Frank’s Red Hot (get the heat level you prefer, but we like ours hot!)
3 large ribs celery, cut into sticks
1 recipe blue cheese dip (recipe follows)
Preheat broiler to high
1. Place the wings on a broiler pan (make sure it is about 5 to 6 inches from the flame)and broil until the skin begins to blister and brown, about 10 minutes. Turn the wings over and broil 10 minutes more.
4. Transfer the wings to a large bowl and coat with Franks Hot Wing Sauce
1/4 cup plain Greek style non-fat yogurt
2 tbs mayonnaise
1 tsp white wine vinegar
1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
salt to taste
In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, mayo, vinegar, and blue cheese. Mash any large chunks of blue cheese with the back of a spoon to integrate the cheese into the dip. Serve at room temp.
1/4 of the wings + 1/4 of the dip = 260 calories, 5 grams of carbs, and 14 grams of fat.
