Wings tend to get a bad rap because they’re often deep-fried and smothered in sauce. But they can be made healthier without sacrificing flavor or crispiness. The following recipes are baked, grilled, or made in that beloved kitchen appliance—the slow cooker.
Some of the sauces veer into the not-so-healthy territory (we see you, truly crispy oven-baked buffalo wings), but if you keep the dressing on the side or skip it altogether—the wings will still taste delicious.
Now go forth, and eat your protein.

The garlic Parmesan sauce isn’t too spicy, making it the perfect crowd-pleaser. One thing to keep in mind: While the Crock-Pot is convenient, the wings never really get that crispy.
