Low-carb Buffalo Wings

Keto Buffalo Chicken Wings

Another way to Funnyman’s heart: CHICKEN WINGS! These are basted in a great keto marinade, similar to the one I made for the Keto Ribs, with the addition of a sprinkling of chilli flakes scattered over at the end. Delicious for lazy Saturday afternoons while he watches the rugby. Definitely made to be enjoyed with your hands: Get messy!
