Love wings? Try this heart-healthy way to make them (don't worry, they taste just as good). Serve them as an appetizer or snack on game day.


  • 24 chicken drummettes
  • 1/4 cup bottled cayenne pepper sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3/4 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Carrot sticks
  • Celery sticks


  1. In a large bowl toss the drummettes with 2 tablespoons of the cayenne pepper sauce, 1 teaspoon of the cider vinegar, the garlic powder, and the ginger.
  2. Arrange drummettes on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat 15 to 20 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning once. Drizzle chicken with remaining 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper sauce and 1 teaspoon cider vinegar.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine sour cream, blue cheese, green onion, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, and sugar. Serve dressing with chicken drummettes and carrot and celery sticks.


  • * You can also choose to make a healthier version by skinning the chicken wings. To do so, grasp the edge of the skin with a paper towel and pull it away from the drummette.


  • If you can't find chicken drummettes, start with 12 chicken wings. Cut off the wing tips; discard or save for making stock. Cut wings at joints to form 24 pieces.
