At my gym, we talk about food a lot. One day, a guy named Wayne told me about a chicken recipe he picked up from another gym denizen. He assured me it was a healthy recipe, but he couldn’t remember all the ingredients (his wife does the cooking).

As I walked the indoor track, Wayne flagged me down and introduced me to a woman on a step machine: the source of the chicken recipe, Peggy Dennis. When Peggy described the recipe, I couldn’t believe the ingredients. You’ll be skeptical, too, but these are great wings. As for healthy eating: “Butter is all natural,” Peggy says. I’ve made a few changes to Peggy’s original recipe to adapt it to wings (she uses chicken parts). Don’t cook these on the grill.
