Baked Spicy Greek Yogurt Chicken Wings with Greek Yogurt Bleu Cheese Dressing

Baked Spicy Greek Yogurt Chicken Wings with Greek Yogurt Bleu Cheese Dressing #recipe #superbowl #chickenwings #football

I started easing everyone into all the Super Bowl entertaining recipes over the past few weeks; however, now I’m going to unveil a few of my new favorite football food recipes this week. Including these Baked Spicy Greek Yogurt Chicken Wings with Greek Yogurt Bleu Cheese Dressing. Well, I shouldn’t really say these are my new favorite. These are my husbands new favorite. He loves all things wings. I believe I mentioned that when I shared my Baked Buffalo Queso Fresco Chicken Wing recipe the other week. Well, I’m on a baked wing kick for my husband. He is loving it, and I think after the Super Bowl has come and gone he will sadly miss all the wings I’ve been making him. So note to self, I guess I should continue my chicken wing making after football season.

Once again, I have this super easy chicken wing recipe. You mix two ingredients, place the sauce and the wings in a bag. Shake it around and let them marinade in the sauce for a good 24-hours. I love the bright orange “hot wing” color they have upon coming out of the oven. Crispy skin yet not as sinful as the deep friend version. You’ll  never know these were baked unless someone spilled the beans.

And let’s talk about sauce. A subject that I’ve come to enjoy over the past few years. You see, my husband is the king of all sauces. He believes that there should be a sauce for everything. I don’t always believe that but I do believe that chicken wings should bathe in a luscious creamy sauce. So instead of the traditional full-fat bleu cheese dressing, I decided to make a lighter version of my own. Using Chobani Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt, bleu cheese crumbles, along with a little red onion, and cilantro for a nice kick! Let your food processor do all the work or if you don’t have one you can always mix it by hand. Refrigerate the sauce and pull it out when the wings are ready to be served. No one will ever suspect they are eating a healthy wing dish!
