Making low carb simple
Baked chicken wings
- Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Mix juice and zest from the orange with oil and spices in a small bowl. Place the chicken wings in a plastic bag and pour in the marinade.
- Give the bag a good shake to cover the wings thoroughly. Put aside to marinate for at least 5 minutes but preferably more.
- Place the wings in one layer in a greased baking dish or on a broiler rack, for extra crispiness.
- Bake on the middle rack in the oven for about 40 minutes or until the wings are golden brown and thoroughly cooked.
- In the meantime, divide the broccoli into small florets and parboil in salted water for a couple of minutes. They're only supposed to soften a bit but not lose their shape or color.
- Strain the broccoli and let some of the steam evaporate before adding the remaining ingredients. Serve the broccoli with the baked wings.
You can substitute the broccoli for Brussels sprouts or small florets of cauliflower. If you have an outdoor grill, you can use that for cooking the wings as well.
One if the best new ones!
Perhaps sour cream or yogurt...or a mix of the two. Hope that helps.
I also made the broccoli, and it's very good heated with just a little of the mayo/dill mixture in there. I added a little pepper jack cheese just for fun, and it was really yummy.
Our nutrition information is always for the whole meal. Unfortunately I don't have a specific breakdown of carb count by meal component but there wouldn't be very many carbs from the marinade.
That is certainly a personal choice! Some people like to only make a smaller number of servings, while other prefer to make enough to have leftovers.
You should divide the finished product by the number of servings stated in the recipe. Using this recipe as an example, if you have it set to 4 servings and your 3lbs of chicken is 20 wings, a serving would be 5 wings with each serving.
Absolutely, you could use drumsticks here. You will likely need to cook them a bit longer.
Ps... following a suggestion from a member’s comment above, I crumpled the foil and yep, crispier wings - thanks Melisa (#23)
