Oven Baked Chicken Wings
Let’s face it – who doesn’t like baked chicken wings? Often cited as something reserved for “party food,” this recipe proves that you can enjoy great tasting dishes while still eating towards your goals. Here’s the thing: most people tend to forget that animal proteins also contain those healthy fats that you’re always hearing about. In fact, lean cuts of chicken, pork, and beef usually have a balanced ratio of all three major forms of fat (saturated, mono, and polyunsaturated) that you need for optimal performance.
With that being said, these oven baked chicken wings have no skin on them. It isn’t a complete sin to leave the skin on; do so if you’re considering this meal a cheat that falls outside of your 85% compliancy. If you’re using this as a protein for the week then ditch the skin and consider this meal a one-two punch for your protein and fat needs.
Enjoy one of the easiest and tastiest recipes you’ll ever come across.
