I love chicken wings! Hot, spicy, buffalo, bbq, teriyaki… you name I will eat it! You might be asking yourself just what does Inside Out Buffalo Chicken Wings even mean?

Well I’ll tell you. It’s a reverse of where the flavor lies. Ranch chicken wings dipped in buffalo sauce. Inside Out!

These are also lighter in calories and fat than the classic buffalo wing. The use of greek yogurt keeps these wings light and fresh.

Using plastic zip lock bags keeps the mess down to a minimum. It’s fun to shake all the seasonings around get the ranch yogurt sauce completely coated. This recipe is so simple and you are going to be the star of the football or tailgating party!

If you are going to make this for your big tailgating party, make sure to bake the wings in the oven and then just finish them off on the grill once you are at the game. You can do this method for your party also

Pre Baking them will cut down on your grilling time, as you will just be reheating and getting some char on them. Plus you get to eat them sooner!!
