Healthy Buffalo Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe

This healthy alternative to deep-fried chicken wings is just as tasty and contains only 2g of saturated fat per serving.

Challenge your guests to taste the difference with this healthy version of a now 50-year old American staple.

Makes 4 servings

Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing:

1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
2 tbsp mayonnaise
¼ cup crumbled blue cheese
2 tbsp onion, minced
2 tbsp white vinegar
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp black pepper
2 cups celery sticks
2 cups carrot sticks

Buffalo Wings:

2½ lbs chicken wings
Cooking spray
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
¾ cup buffalo sauce (Texas Pete)


Make blue cheese dressing ahead of time: combine all ingredients (except carrots and celery), mix well and let sit for at least 30 minutes so that flavors blend.

Pre-heat oven to 375°F.

Place steam basked in large pot with 1 inch of water. Coat steam basket with cooking spray so wings do not stick. Place wings in 1 layer on steam basket.

Cover pot and steam wings 12-15 minutes on medium heat.

Once wings have finished steaming, place a wire cooking rack on top of a baking sheet and coat with cooking spray. Place wings on top of rack, season with salt and pepper, and roast for 12-15 minutes or until crispy. Fat should drip to bottom of cooking sheet.

Toss wings with buffalo sauce in a large bowl and serve immediately with carrot and celery sticks and blue cheese dressing.
