Can I Make Ahead These Low Carb Buffalo Chicken Wings?

Yes, you can make this recipe ahead of time but make sure you don’t pour the sauce because the wings will get soften and go soggy.

Can I Store These Crispy Keto Buffalo Wings?

For the ultimate and crispiness and taste, I recommend you to eat it immediately. But yes, you can pack them in airtight containers and store in the refrigerator for upto 4-5 days. (Don’t store them if already mixed with the sauce or they will soften and become soggy).

When ready to reheat, place them in the preheated oven at 200C/390F and bake for 6-8 minutes or until crispy again.
