This is not my original recipe.  This comes from one of may favorite Food Network ladies, Ellie Krieger. For a low-fat alternative at your Super Bowl Party give this a try.  I think the flavor is what we are going for, and it should be here in these wings.  I like Ellie Krieger’s recipes.  I think this one is a going to become a favorite.

I think an oriental  bar-b-que flavor would be a good alternative to ribs, if getting that sauce all over your fingers is what you are into.

Broiled Buffalo Wings

  • 2 pounds chicken wings, split at the joints, tips removed
  • ¼ cup cayenne pepper sauce (Frank’s Red Hot, plus more for dipping)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 large ribs celery, cut into sticks
  • 1 recipe Blue Cheese Dip (recipe follows)

Place the wings in a large pot and fill with enough water to cover the wings by about 2 inches.  Bring to a boil, then continue to boil for 10 minutes.  Drain well.

In a small bowl, combine the cayenne pepper sauce, lemon juice and broth.  Reserve

Transfer the wings to a foil-lined baking sheet or broiler pan and broil 5 to 6 inches from the flame, until the skin begins to blister and brown, 5 or 6 minutes.  Turn the wings over and broil 4 to 5 minutes more.

Transfer the wings to a large bowl and drizzle with the reserved sauce and toss well.  Place the wings in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.  Place under the broiler for 1 minute to heat the wings and sauce together.

Blue cheese Dip

  •  ¼ cup plain Greek-style non-fat yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise (low fat))
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese (1.5 ounces)

In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar and blue cheese.  Mash any very large chunks of the cheese with the back of a spoon to integrate the cheese into the dip.

Make this up to 3 days ahead of your party serving date and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.  Allow to come to room temperature to serve with your wings and celery sticks.
