How Many Calories & WW Points in Chicken Wings?

Restaurant buffalos wings often have the skin still on, are deep fried and then coated with a fat-laden Buffalo sauce. The USDA National Nutrient Database puts fried chicken wings without sauce at roughly 103 calories each. Hooter’s wings are estimated to have more than 170 calories each

Skinny Buffalo Chicken Wrap Recipe Notes

If you’re in a hurry, skip the skillet and and just heat the chicken topped tortilla in the microwave.

Replace the ranch with your favorite low-fat dressing, or skip the dressing all together and use a little more hot sauce.

If you don’t care for blue cheese replace it with feta, mozzarella, or your favorite blend.
