Best Keto Dipping Sauce for Wings

For a really amazing snack, dip the wings into a keto-friendly ranch dressing.

Oh, the combination of these two flavors is undeniably scrumptious.

Chicken Wings or Chicken Nuggets

What if you aren't a fan of all the bones in chicken wings? If that's true, you can make keto chicken nuggets with this recipe too.

Buy boneless chicken thighs. Then, chop them into nugget-sized pieces.

Follow all the same directions.

We love chicken thighs because they have a higher fat content and therefore more flavor than lean, white breast meat. Plus, more healthy fats are great for keto!

Can You Make These In the Air Fryer? 

We baked the wings in the oven. But if you have an air fryer, it will work too, it will just take a bit longer because you will need to make them in batches. Here's how to make them in the air fryer:

  • Follow all the same directions, up until the step where you bake them.
  • Lay them in a single layer in the basket of the air fryer. Do not stack them.
  • Set the air fryer to 380°F.
  • Air fry for 20 minutes, shaking the basket every 5 minutes or so.
  • After 20 minutes, turn it up to 400°F.
  • Air fry for about 5-10 minutes longer.
  • Remove when chicken is fully cooked with an internal temperature of 165°F.

Bake the wings for 12 minutes, then flip and bake for about another 8 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.

While the wings are baking, make the wings sauce buy melting butter in a pan over medium heat. Stir in the remaining Homemade Old Bay Seasoning and add some hot pepper sauce.

Pour the butter sauce evenly over the fully cooked wings, toss, and bake again for 2-3 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!!
