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.

Ingredients

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

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper sauce, 1 teaspoon cider vinegar, the garlic powder and the ginger. Add drummettes; toss to coat.
  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 an additional 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper sauce and 1 teaspoon cider vinegar.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl stir together sour cream, blue cheese, green onion, white wine vinegar, lemon juice and sugar. Serve dressing with chicken drummettes and carrot and celery sticks.

Tip

  • * You can make a healthier version by skinning the chicken wings before tossing them in the sauce. To do so, grasp the edge of the skin with a paper towel and pull it away from the drummette.

Tip

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