Oven Fried Salt & Vinegar Chicken Wings are the ultimate game day party food!
Chicken Wings are the perfect finger food for all parties! They are well loved when it comes to football or game day eats. Most often I've seen barbecue chicken wings winning out above the rest but I'm here to share my recipe for a flavor I think will win out above them all; Salt & Vinegar Chicken wings!
Recently we went out to a restaurant called Buffalo Wild Wings and had the most amazing salt and vinegar dry rub on wings! I was in love and new I needed to recreate a version at home and bake them instead of fry them.
I've never found out what exactly was in the dry seasoning used by that restaurant but I attempted my own version adapting the flavors from my Salt & Vinegar Zucchini Chips.
I've made them a couple times now and think this is probably as best as I can get them without frying them.
The seasoning works best and has the most flavor after the wings have marinated and baked in the oven.
You can see the differences here on the baking sheet of the way I tried adding the seasoning. The 4 wings up front have been rolled and tossed in the seasonings while the rest of them have just been given a sprinkle on both sides.
The hubby was worried by rolling and tossing them in the seasoning it would be too overpowering so I sprinkled on the rest. You can use do it however you like. I actually prefer them to be more heavily coated but that's just me.
If you're not keen on Salt & Vinegar Flavored wings, these Crispy Baked Chicken Wings might be more to your liking or maybe these Brown Butter Old Bay Wings, but if you like Spicy, check out these Spicy Oven Chicken Wings!
- You don't necessarily need to add any sweetener to these, but the little bit of Swerve I did add really enhances the savory flavors of these wings so I do highly recommend using it.
- The malt vinegar is optional because you certainly could just taste a wing and decide if it has enough vinegar flavor for your taste buds. I prefer more and used it heavily!
- If you decide you'd rather coat the wings as opposed to just sprinkling the dry seasoning on them you may need to double the ingredients.

When I was searching for a low-carb chicken wing recipe, it was kind of overwhelming (I was bombarded with hundreds of options) -- until I saw this salt & vinegar chicken wing recipe by Sugar Free Mom. I am such a fan of your recipes! You have never let me down, and your slow cooker fudge and vanilla wafer recipes -- among others -- have become family favorites. So I was pretty confident that we would love this chicken wing recipe, and it was absolutely delicious! The chicken wings really do resemble fried chicken -- but without all of the bad for you frying. Adding the dry seasonings as a post-baking sprinkle and then briefly broiling them is a stroke of genius! The erythritol is the ingredient that really puts these wings over the top. It sort of caramelizes, and provides a sweet crispiness that plays off of the savory seasonings in the most delicious way! Thank you, Sugar Free Mom, for making low carb so much more palatable and exciting than I thought it would be!
Thank you so much Wendy!
They actually sell their dry rubs and sauces! ❤️
I’m a salt and vinegar fan so I gave this a try with drumsticks instead of wings. Now my local Walmart makes salt and vinegar wings that are delish, but I don’t get them often. I found that the apple cider vinegar made the chicken taste too sweet to me, so next time I will use malt vinegar to marinade instead. The seasoning definitely doesn’t need sweetener if you like them super salty like I do. I also wonder if it would be better to “dredge” the chicken through the seasoning to help coat it evenly. They’re still very good as is, but I’m used to a boardwalk fry kind of flavor.
How many wings per serving would you guess?
Try using dill pickle juice instead of vinegar.
Thanks for linking to me. I think I may have pinned these a few times already but it never hurts to share them again! 😉
Is that suppose to be 2 tablespoons of swerve? or 2 teaspoons?
I am making these right now. I have gotten them from Safeway Deli and they are yummy. Theirs can be a bit greasy so looking forward to trying these baked ones.
These look delicious- you can actually buy all of their seasonings and sauces at the restaurant!
True but I like to challenge myself and make it at home.
best wings I have ever made! Making them again but this time 10 lbs so juicey and tender and no fat! Using the nuwave
I have been dying to make these since I found the recipe a few weeks ago. While they are not as vinegar-y as I'd like, they were absolutely DELICIOUS! My mom and I made these along side her famous lemon-pepper chicken wings and these were by far superior. The meat fell off the bone and the dry seasoning tasted great. I don't often comment on recipes but I wanted to thank you for posting this. We're doing low-carb right now and it really helps to have something crave-able to eat 🙂
Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
