Buffalo Wild Wings is a place that I can visit with my family grub on some to-die-for buffalo-style chicken wings. But you know me, I had to go home and make a keto version. So if you ask the question is homemade Keto buffalo wild wings possible? Yes, they are! Here is how I make my delicious keto buffalo wild wings from scratch.

Are buffalo wild wings breaded? Yes! Are buffalo wild wings keto? If the chicken isn’t coated in bread, yes! Since the bread is high in carbs, you're better off coating your chicken with a sauce instead. They offer a variety of keto-friendly sauces, but you can make them with healthy fats using avocado oil or olive oil.

My low-carb buffalo wild wings are always a hit due to their irresistible combination of spicy and salty flavor.

Trust me, you’ll be everyone’s favorite person at the party.

Things to serve with low carb buffalo wild wings

Buffalo Wild Wings is a fan favorite for sports watching and chicken wing eating. But the restaurant chain's high-carbohydrate sauces and sides can easily blow your healthy diet. Here are five lower-carb Buffalo Wild Wings sauce and side options to help you stick to your diet while enjoying this popular eatery:

  • Swap the high-carb Ranch dressing for blue cheese dressing.
  • Instead of ordering tortilla chips as a dipping vessel for your salsa, use celery sticks or cucumber slices.
  • Hold the fries and order a side salad with grilled chicken or steak instead.
  • Choose a BBQ sauce over honey mustard or ranch dressing as a dipping sauce for your wings. If you’re eating them at home, do like I did and make your own homemade BBQ sauce.
  • Get a side of steamed broccoli or cauliflower instead of the high-carb sides like garlic mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese.

How long can you store Buffalo Wild Wings?

Buffalo Wild Wings can be stored in a refrigerator for up to two days. If you want to store them for longer, you can freeze them for up to six months. When you are ready to eat them, just thaw them out and heat them in the oven or microwave. Enjoy!
