Appetizer anyone?

Getting to eat appetizers when dining out is one of my absolute favorite surprises. Often though, many restaurants don’t have a single appetizer that is gluten free. So here, we’ve just created our own wing or drumette recipe. 

This may be dating us, but when my husband and I were first married, we used to buy chicken wings or drumettes for just $.27 a pound in the large value pack! Now people love the wing or drumette and the price has risen slightly. Still, it’s a fun appetizer to make and even now not too pricey!

Pan-fried and baked or deep fried?

Just pan-fried for a few minutes and then baked, we can say they are semi-healthy, right? Honestly, you don’t need to go to the trouble of deep frying, because they are delicious baked! But feel free to deep fry if you like.  

Use certified gluten free Sriracha or other ingredients if needed

Serve these coated in sauce. If you like spice just add another teaspoon or two of the sriracha in the sauce. I like to use Sky Valley Sriracha as it’s labeled gluten free. You can also increase the amount of cayenne pepper, but beware as it can sneak up on you!

How to serve them

Then just serve with homemade or a store bought ranch dressing for those that like it. You can serve plated on a bed of lettuce with some cut-up veggies to dip in the ranch as well. My husband and I aren’t ranch dressing fans, but our granddaughter definitely eats her share and our share of ranch dressing!

Notes

How amazing that someone with a gluten allergy could enjoy a Buffalo Wing appetizer! You can easily make these gluten free and dairy free too. Just substitute dairy free butter in the sauce for a dairy free option.
