Gluten Free Boneless Wings Two Ways (whole 30 and weight watchers friendly)

When I was working on my teriyaki and garlic hot wings, I had an epiphany. Boneless wings! I’m always looking for ways to make the foods I love lower in smart points and cleaner. These boneless wings are coated in almond meal, which adds an awesome flavor to them. The garlic hot wings have an almost Parmesan flavor! The teriyaki wings are sweetened with a bit of frozen pineapple to add a subtle sweetness. They’re made with boneless skinless chicken breasts making them very point friendly as well. Below you will find the recipe for the boneless wings, followed by the garlic hot sauce and the teriyaki sauce recipes. Both sauces are the same point value so both versions are 2sp for a dinner sized portion and 1sp for an appetizer sized serving. These are sure to be a hit at your next game day party!
