Buffalo wings are not only fried, but they also still have the skin on—making them double trouble in terms of fat and calories. (One order can pack nearly 1700 calories and 50 grams of fat, and that’s before the blue cheese dressing!) But it’s easy to lighten the load by swapping your chicken wings for boneless chicken breast strips and baking them in the oven, rather than frying them. (For a great tasting buffalo sauce made without all that butter, mix together hot pepper sauce, corn starch, white vinegar, and cayenne pepper.) Serve six srips up with low-fat Ranch instead of full-fat blue cheese—and your snack comes in at under than 300 calories and less than 10 grams of fat.
