Wings and Things


I probably won’t try this one out until I have a party or people over, but this could be great for tailgates or the Super Bowl!  I found this recipe at Cooking Light and it is definitely a healthier version of wings so I can’t wait to see if it is good.  Enjoy!



Buffalo-Style Drummettes with Blue Cheese Dip oh-buffalo-drummettes-blue-cheese-l

  • Cooking spray
  • 3 lbs chicken wing drummettes, skinned (30 drummettes)
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup thick hot sauce
  • 2 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp reduced-sodium Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced



Preheat oven to 450°.


Line a jelly-roll pan with foil; coat foil with cooking spray. Place chicken on prepared pan; sprinkle with pepper. Lightly coat chicken with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 450° for 7 minutes or until lightly browned.


Combine hot sauce and next 3 ingredients (through garlic) in an oval 4-quart electric slow cooker coated with cooking spray.


Remove chicken from pan; drain on paper towels. Place chicken in slow cooker, tossing gently to coat with sauce. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 hours or until chicken is very tender. Serve with Blue Cheese Dip, carrot sticks, and celery sticks




Blue Cheese Dip

  • 4 ounces 1/3-less-fat cream cheese (about 1/2 cup)

  • 2 Tbsp canola mayonnaise
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 Tbsp blue cheese, crumbled and divided



Place cream cheese in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer until smooth. Add sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic, and half of blue cheese, beating until smooth.


Stir in remaining blue cheese.
