Chicken wings get a bad rap because they're traditionally greasy, fried, skin-on tailgating treats. But they don't have to be! If you want to cut down on the fat and calories in this appetizer, remove the chicken skin. However, 55% of the fat in chicken skin comes from the heart healthy mono-unsaturated fat so a little bit won't blow your saturated fat budget for the day. To simply degrease wings, bake or grill them instead of deep-fat frying then toss in hot sauce or buffalo sauce. You can also reduce the calories even more by using chicken breast tenders or even fish tossed in wing sauce.
