You can skip the fryer and butter and still get your wing fix. Steaming the wings first (use a stovetop steamer basket, microwave steam bags or oven-steam them in a foil packet) can also render their fat, decreasing their total calories.



  • 2 1/2 lb Chicken, Party Wings
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 3 tbsp Cayenne


1 Preheat the oven to 420 degrees Fahrenheit.
2 Bring water to a boil in a large pot and place wings in a steamer basket above the boiling water. Cover, reduce the heat to medium and steam about 10 minutes.
3 Allow wings to cool, pat them dry, then toss in a bowl with salt, pepper and Cayenne until completely covered. Evenly place on a baking rack above a sheet pan (you’ll want to use two if you’re doing them all at once), making sure to space out the wings. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, then remove, flip and return to the oven for another 15 to 20 minutes.
4 Remove wings from the oven, toss with salt and Cayenne pepper, then serve.
5 Notes:
6 Adjust seasonings to taste.
