After a long day at work, the last thing most people want to do is cook a complicated dinner that shaves time off those precious few hours that can be spent relaxing with family, helping the kids with homework, or unwinding before bed.
But what if you could make a delicious meal the entire family could enjoy in less than 15 minutes with minimal ingredients?
Trying to shed unwanted pounds but can’t seem to shake your love of wings? This keto chicken wings approved recipe is perfect for you!

Free of crusts and batter, low in carbohydrates, and high in fat, this recipe is perfect for keto dieters who want to add great-tasting wings back into their diets.
