Traditional chicken wings, although tasty, are high in calories and fat. And, due to their small size, many can easily be gobbled up without notice. Add to that, dunks of high-fat blue cheese dip, and traditional wings score loads of calories.
Instead, this Recipe Makeover is flavorful yet seriously trims the calories and fat by simply removing the wing skin, skipping the butter often used in recipes, and adding an optional light dip on the side. Enjoy!
Remove skin from chicken wings; discard skin. (Or, if preferred, remove skin after grilling.)
In a shallow dish, combine oyster sauce, chili sauce, sugar, lime juice, and white wine. Mix well. Add chicken wings; covering the wings with the sauce marinade. Cover dish. Refrigerate overnight.
Remove chicken wings from marinade. Cook on/under a hot grill until golden brown, marinading as needed, and cooked through.
Serve on a platter with lime halves and sprinkle with coriander.
If using skin-on wings, allow for extra calories and fat (see link to 'show traditional').
As an appetizer, can serve with veggie sticks, and/or Cilantro Yogurt Dip (see recipe link), or with a non-dairy dip (if dairy-free is required).
As an entrée, can serve with cooked rice and stir-fry vegetables.
