Chicken Wing recipe alternative, in the attempt to make them more healthy.
Calories: Cut via baking instead of frying, juicy marinades to keep the chicken moist, and re-vamped low-cal sauces.

1 Package of chicken wings obviously. An eyeballed mixture of 3 parts Newman's Own Lime Vinegarette Salad Dressing, 1 part soy sauce, 1/2 part worsheshire (hell if I know how to spell it Lol) sauce, and a good few shakes of Grill Mates Monreal Chicken Spice in a plastic baggy to marinade. I let it marinade throughout the day.
Piece of parchment paper in a pan, arrange the chicken wings on it and pour the leftover sauce on top of them. Cook for 12-15 minutes, turn over, and cook another 5-10 minutes. When they're almost done, turn the oven off and let them settle while making the sauce.
Buffalo wing sauce: 1/2 cup chicken broth or stock that's low sodium and fat free, however much hot sauce you want (I looove frank's red hot sauce for it, and I used a lot..), a clove (or spoonful if you're lazy like me and buy it) of minced garlic. Mix 1 Tbsp of Cornstarch with 1 Tbsp of water, then add those two the sauce to thicken it and make it cling to the chicken. Heat it up in a small saucepan and it's good to go. Pour the chickens into a bowl, pour sauce on top, set them on a tray, pour remaining sauce over them.
Bleu Cheese Dipping sauce: 1/3 cup lowfat buttermilk, 1/3 cup light mayo, amount of bleu cheese you want (I used almost an entire small store-bought container- 1/2 cup) salt pepper and lemon juice to taste and blend them all together in a blender and it's ready for dipping. Serve with celery and carrot sticks.
