How Baked Coffee Wings are Healthier

While chicken wings aren’t the healthiest choice for your diet, (one raw wing is around 100 calories), they can be make healthier. These delicious wings keep fat down in multiple ways and do it without sacrificing flavor.

  1. They are baked and not fried. Frying food adds extra and unnecessary calories.
  2. The only additional ingredient is the rub. Wings start packing on the calories when you add sauce on them and dip them in ranch.
  3. They don’t include any butter or oil which is common in most wing recipes.
