Low Carb Snack Wing Recipes

Tangy Lime Infused Chili Wings

Yield: About 14 pieces  |  Net Carbs: 1,  Protein: 5

Tangy Lime Infused Chili ChickenWings


  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1½ pounds chicken wings
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lime, cut in wedges


Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a small bowl, combine the paprika and the next 5 ingredients (through garlic powder). If you like individual “drummettes,” cut your wings up (or buy them that way).

Arrange them in a pan and brush them with the olive oil. Sprinkle the paprika mixture evenly over your wings.

Roast for at least 45 minutes to an hour. You want them crispy! If you have a rotisserie with a basket, that’s a great way to cook these as well.

Serve hot, with wedges of lime to squeeze over the wings.


Italian Herb Wings

Yield: About 50 pieces  |  Net Carbs: less than 1,  Protein: 4

Italian Herb Chicken Wings


  • 4 pounds chicken wings
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup butter


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a shallow baking pan with foil.

Cut the wings into “drummettes,” saving the pointy tips. (Not sure what to do with those wing tips? Freeze them for soup—they make great broth.)

Combine Parmesan cheese, parsley, oregano, paprika, salt and pepper in a bowl.

Melt the butter in a shallow bowl or pan. Dip each drumstick in butter, roll in the cheese and seasoning mixture, and arrange in the foil-lined pan.

Bake for 1 hour.


Sweet Lemon Soy Wings

Yield: 16 pieces  |  Net Carbs: less than 1,  Protein: 5

Sweet Lemon Soy Chicken Wings


  • 8 whole chicken wings
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger root
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar-free imitation honey
  • 1 tablespoon Splenda
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder


Preheat oven to 375°F.

Cut wings into “drummettes,” and place inside a resealable plastic bag.  Combine all other ingredients, reserving some liquid for basting and pour the rest over the wings.

Seal the bag, pressing out the air as you go, and turn it a few times to coat. Let the wings marinate for at least an hour, and up to a full day.

Preheat the oven and drain the marinade from the wings.

Arrange wings in a shallow baking pan and roast for 1 hour, basting two or three times with the reserved marinade. Use a clean utensil each time.


Garlic Ginger Wings

Yield: About 28 pieces  |  Net Carbs: less than 1,  Protein: 5

Garlic Ginger Chicken Wings


  • 3 pounds chicken wings
  • ¼ cup dry sherry
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup sugar-free imitation honey
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger root
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ teaspoon chili garlic paste


Preheat oven to 375°F.

Cut your wings into “drummettes” if they are whole. Put your wings in a big resealable plastic bag.

Mix together everything else, reserving some marinade for basting, and pour the rest into the bag. Seal the bag, pressing out the air as you go.

Turn the bag a few times to coat the wings and throw it in the fridge for a few hours (a whole day is brilliant).

Pull out the bag, pour off the marinade, and arrange the wings in a shallow baking pan.

Give them a good hour in the oven, basting every 15 minutes with the reserved marinade. Use a clean utensil each time you baste.

Serve with plenty of napkins!


Stone Ground Mustard Lemon Wings

Yield: 20 pieces  |  Net Carbs: less than 1,  Protein: 5

Stone Ground Mustard Lemon Chicken Wings


  • 10 chicken wings
  • 3 tablespoons brown mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Splenda
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon chili paste
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


Preheat your oven to 400°F.

Cut wings into drummettes. Arrange the wings in a baking pan.

Mix together all other ingredients. Brush half of the mixture over the wings and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Turn the wings, brush with the rest of the mustard mixture using a clean utensil, and bake for another 20 to 25 minutes.

Serve hot or cold.


Asian Spiced Peanut Wings

Yield: 24 pieces  |  Net Carbs: 1, Protein: 5

Asian Spiced Peanut Chicken Wings


  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Splenda
  • 3 tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Chinese Five Spice powder
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (or more, if you want them hotter)
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 12 chicken wings or 24 drummettes


Preheat the oven to 325°F.

Put the soy sauce, Splenda, peanut butter, sherry, oil, vinegar, spice powder, pepper flakes, and garlic in a blender or food processor and blend well.

Arrange the wings in a large baking pan, pour the blended sauce over them, and then turn them over to coat on all sides. Let them sit for at least half an hour (an hour is even better).

Bake the wings for an hour, turning every 20 minutes during baking.

When the wings are done, put them on a serving platter and scrape the sauce from the pan back into the blender or food processor. Blend again for just a moment to make it smooth and serve with the wings.
