Grilled Chicken Wings with White BBQ Sauce | Low Carb | Keto

Updated: May 9, 2018

These grilled Chicken Wings with White BBQ Sauce are a summer time favorite. The white BBQ sauce is not like most traditional barbecue sauces that we are more familiar with. It is a northern Alabama specialty, it is typically a mayonnaise-based sauce, made tangy with the addition of vinegar. It is the prefect compliment with grilled chicken wings.The grilled chicken wings are filled with flavor and are super easy to make with just a few simple ingredients. Slow cook these wings on the grill to make them perfectly crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.

If you are looking for a change from a tomato based BBQ sauce, this is it! And it's low carb and keto friendly!

Grilled Chicken Wings

Recipe adapted from Grillin' Fools (I used his chicken recipe but found a different White BBQ Sauce that I like better. Recipe follows)


Dry Rub Ingredients

18-24 fresh chicken wings and/or sections

2 tbsp Ancho chile powder

2 tbsp sweet paprika (use spicy variety for more kick)

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cayenne pepper

3-4 tsp olive oil

Directions for Chicken:

1. In a bowl, combine the dry rub ingredients.

2. Place the chicken in a large pan, drizzle and coat the wings olive oil. Sprinkle the dry rub over the wings and toss until coated well.

3. Preheat your outdoor grill to a medium high heat, and brush the grate with oil. Place the wings on the grill and cook for 5 minutes, turn the wings over to the other side. Turn heat down to 275 degrees. Continue to cook, turning the wings occasionally, for about 20-30 minutes until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
