Today’s recipe is…well, considered an actual “bar snack” but a yummy one nonetheless.
In the final days before Super Bowl Sunday (especially when your hometown team is in it), it’s so necessary to have some little meaty bites on hand to satisfy the hungry fans you’ll be having over for your super bowl party. Of course, since it is Super Bowl Sunday, these bites should be game appropriate, think bar snacks but snazzier. This appetizer is all about keeping the absolute same flavor of your all time favorite bar snack but making it a weeee bit healthier. That way ladies, fitting and feeling comfortable in your snazzy super bowl outfit will be a breeze. Enjoy!

Baked Buffalo Wings 
Recipe adapted from Food Network Magazine
Cooking spray, for the baking sheet
3 pounds chicken wings, split at the joints, tips removed
4 stalks celery, cut into thirds
4 carrots, cut in half
2 bay leaves
1 cup fat-free low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup Frank's RedHot sauce (or 1/2 cup other hot sauce)
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon honey

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Put the chicken wings in a deep skillet; add 3 pieces of celery, 3 pieces of carrot, the bay leaves, chicken broth, hot sauce, paprika, butter, honey and 1/2 cup water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer until the chicken is almost cooked through, about 18 minutes. Transfer the wings to the prepared baking sheet and arrange in a single layer; reserve the sauce in the skillet.
Bake the wings, turning once, until the skin is golden and crisp, 30 to 35 minutes. Meanwhile, simmer the reserved sauce over medium-low heat until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. Discard the celery, carrot and bay leaves. Reserve one-quarter of the sauce for serving. Return the wings to the skillet and toss with the remaining sauce. Serve the wings with the blue cheese dip and reserved sauce; cut the remaining celery and carrot into sticks to serve on the side.
