Healthy wings may seem like an oxymoron, so let’s stick with healthier wings. We do love wings and they are so fun for a party. Whether you are looking for the perfect chicken wings recipe for the Annual Super football Bowl or just having friends over and looking for a great appetizer, this recipe for buttery steakhouse lemon pepper wings will be your new go-to for healthy chicken wings.

First, we start by slow-cooking the wings to remove some of the overall fat. This helps us in two ways. First the waistline, second it prevents the wings from flaring up on the grill.

We’re going to simmer the chicken wings in chicken broth (or wine or beer). Just use a flavorful liquid. We don’t need to fully cook them completely, just get all that fat floating on the top of the pan after they have cooked for 30 minutes on low. If you start with frozen wings, you’ll need to cook them longer.

Then we drain them, pat them dry and season them up. Then onto the grill they go. They can still flare up so don’t just walk away from your grill. Grill them until they are slightly crispy and delicious. This will finish the cooking process and leave you with fall-off-the-bone tender chicken wings.
