Buffalo Chicken Wings, Real Food, Primal, and GAPS/SCD Friendly


Buffalo Chicken Wings GAPS Friendly

Buffalo Chicken Wings are a fun messy treat perfect for football season, having guests over, and potlucks.  These are favorites with my kids, though they had a hard time wrapping their heads around not using a fork to eat since that’s so often emphasized ;)

Served with sliced veggies (which can also be dipped in the blue cheese dressing), this meal is simple to put together.  Save the bones to make stock with.

  1. Okay, these look awesome! I want to find good chicken wings and then make these :)

  2. I’ve never seen a real food idea for buffalo sauce… THIS is perfect. Now I am in trouble :)

  3. Looks great!!!

    But don’t bake with olive oil :)

  4. Blue cheese is GAPS friendly? Woo hoo!!

  5. I’ve been wanting to try these! Love that they sound delicious without compromising health.

  6. Thanks! I added 1 T of honey and we use this for our BBQ sauce for other things too:)
    I’ve been searching for a BBQ sauce recipe. So easy too.

  7. When I was in maui at a local farmers market, there was a lovely lady selling Hawaii sea salt that had been mixed with red clay that she gathered her self. It is an awesome way to get it in your diet. We use it on eggs all the time.

  8. Very tasty! Love the blue cheese dressing! The buffalo sauce was VERY spicy for me and my husband (I even halved the cayenne and paprika to 1/2 T- too spicy for us. Made another small batch using a little paprika and only a sprinkling of cayenne, much easier for us to handle : ) We cannot handle spicy well so for others you may want to slowly add the spices to your liking. Otherwise very good, we ate with some crispy celery!

  9. These turned out great! I did 1/2 Tbls of pepper(don’t like it hot) and a tab bit of raw honey. Can you give me the calorie count? I’m trying to gain some weight and I think these might help. LOL!

  10. This recipe did not work for me. It way to spicy and did not taste good. Sorry! I’m still looking for the perfect party wings recipe for me and my family.
