Nutrisystem Boneless Honey BBQ Chicken Wings:
The ingredients for the boneless honey bbq chicken wings are pretty simple. Hopefully you have most of these ingredients in your kitchen already:
- One 8 oz. can tomato sauce (no sugar added)
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 Tbsp. honey
- 2 Tbsp. tomato paste
- 1 Tbsp. molasses
- 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp. chili powder
- 1/2 tsp. paprika
- 1/4 tsp. onion powder
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 1/4 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper
- 3 Tbsp. whole-wheat flour
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 1/8 tsp. black pepper
- 12 oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 18 pieces
- 2 Tbsp. egg whites
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, then place a wire oven safe cooling rack on top (to make the boneless wings crispy!) Mist rack with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
- BBQ SAUCE: Combine all ingredients together in a medium saucepan, and whisk vigorously.
- Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. The sauce will have thickened slightly.
- CHICKEN: While sauce is simmering, whisk together flour, salt and black pepper in a large bowl.
- In another medium bowl, combine chicken with egg whites and toss to coat.
- Remove one chicken wing (aka bite, or nugget) from the egg whites and dip into the flour mixture, turning to lightly coat.
- Place coated chicken wing on the cooling rack. Repeat with the remaining pieces of chicken.
- Bake chicken nuggets for 8 minutes, then flip. Continue baking until coating is golden brown and crispy, about 8 more minutes.
- After chicken has cooled for 2-3 minutes, place chicken wings in a medium bowl.
- Pour BBQ sauce over the top, then gently toss with tongs to coat.
