I discovered this super yummy low carb wing recipe a few years ago in a cookbook I picked up called 500 low carb recipes by Diana Carpender. I made them for a Superbowl party one year and they were a huge hit. I had these lovely pastured whole chicken wings and a tub of raw butter in the freezer so I decided to dust off the recipe. Once again, delicious! I served it with a raw kale salad to give a little crunch and tang to a very rich and finger-licking dish.  I had to “Paleo-fy” it for me since I can’t eat dairy. Here’s the recipe for 4 lbs of wings, but I halved mine for the 2 lbs I had handy.


  • 4 lbs chicken wings (or wings and drummettes)
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese (I omitted this for the wings I ate)
  • 2 tbs dried parsley
  • 1 tbs dried oregano
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 350.

Combine all the herbs and spices in a bowl and mixed well. Add the cheese and mix if you are using the cheese. (I put the cheese in a Ziploc bag and added the spices to it for the wings I made for the kids and left the extra spices without cheese for myself in the bowl.)

In a separate bowl, melt the butter.

Line a baking sheet with foil or waxed/parchment paper. If you don’t you will be scraping burnt cheese off your baking sheet for hours. Dip each wing into the melted butter (really saturate it!). Coat the buttered wing  in the cheese and spice mix and place on the baking sheet. You almost want them to look breaded. Repeat this with all the wings. I did this with half the wings. With the other half I saturated in butter the sprinkled each wing with the spice mixture, I also added plenty of salt and some ground chipotle powder because I didn’t have the salty/tangy taste of the cheese.

Once all your wings are saturated and seasoned. Bake in the 350 degree oven for about 50 mins to an hour until they are really brown and cooked through. (For the wings without cheese I brushed one extra time with butter about halfway through to avoid them drying out.) All that butter makes them really crispy and golden brown.  Finger licking good some might say! YUM!

    Hi again,

    I came back today to your blog to look for more awesome recipes, but I needed to speak up: your chicken wings are great! We had them for dinner last tuesday. I changed some ingredients: I made it without cheese because I can’t eat dairy (just like you, it seems), and as we didn’t have butter nor chipotle, I used olive oil and cayenne. Anyway, great result: one of the best ways I’ve found to eat chicken!

    Have a nice day!
