One of our favorite things to munch on at parties – especially Game Day parties – are sticky chicken wings. There might not be very much meat on a wing, but that sauce makes theses sticky fingers worth it. 

These chicken wings have layers and layers of texture and flavor.

From the fresh cilantro and crunchy sesame seeds to the spice of the Thai chili garlic sauce, you have never tried anything like these wings before.

Keto GameDay Food

GameDay parties are notorious for having tons of high-carb appetizers and foods like chips, soda, french fries, and dips.

So how do you stay in ketosis when you go to football parties? 

Honestly, that's tough. And that's why we prefer to host the parties ourselves. Then, we can control the entire menu.

If that's not an option – don't fret! Just offer to bring a dish to the party and make it keto-friendly!

Here are some more snacky foods that would be perfect for a party:

Step #2. Make the Sticky Sauce 

While the wings are baking, mix together the ginger, Thai chili garlic sauce, coconut aminos, and balsamic vinegar.

You'll heat this on the stove until it thickens.  Are you drooling yet? You will be after you make this sauce!

After it's nice and thick, put the cooked wings in a large bowl and pour the sauce over them.

Keto Sticky Wings Tips

As you make the wings, here are some tips that will help you out. 

  • Whole or cut wings both work. Keep your wings whole or cut them in half. Either way works. You just have to make sure the chicken cooks completely in the oven. 
  • Follow proper chicken cooking temperatures. While white meat chicken is best when cooked to 165°F, dark meat chicken, such as wings, can be cooked to a higher internal temperature.   We like to take them out of the oven when they reach 175°F.
  • Don't forget to pat the chicken dry. Patting the chicken dry with paper towels and rubbing olive oil on the wings will help the skin to crisp.  Cooking them at 400°F ensures for very crispy skin, which helps the sauce to stick to the wings. 
  • Broil for crispy chicken wings. If your wings are not as crispy as you'd like them to be, broil them for just a couple minutes.
