Crispy Onion and Chive Chicken Wing

Have you ever had a chicken wing that tastes like a sour cream and onion chip? Probably not! I am here to change that with my brand new Crispy Chive and Onion Chicken Wings. These wings will easily become a family favorite and to make it even better, its Whole30, Keto, Paleo and Gluten Free.

Crispy Onion and Chive Chicken Wing

My goal is always create recipes that makes eating healthy easy and delicious. Hands down this is a new family favorite at my house and currently have it on our weekly menu rotation. You seriously won’t be able to get enough of these flavorful, yet crispy wings that are exploding with a ton of flavor.

Crispy Onion and Chive Chicken Wing

Tips for making these crispy chicken wings:

  • Be sure to use a wired rack if cooking in the oven. This allows the chicken wing to get crispy and cook evenly.
  • Don’t overcoat your wings. Toss in the almond flour mixture to give it a nice even coating.
  • The secret ingredient to these is tossing it in the melted ghee along with the onion and chive coating. The butter allows the coating to stick, but also adds a ton of flavor.

What’s the best way to cook these chicken wings?

These wings work in either the oven or the air fryer. It will be quicker to do it in the air fryer, but the oven ones came out really juicy. In my opinion, it will be more of a preference. I really enjoy the traditional oven method with this recipe. However, the air fryer is a great option if you don’t want to cook in the oven.

Chive and Onion Chicken Wings

Crispy and flavorful chicken wings that taste identical to a sour cream and onion chip. These are the perfect appetizer or game day treat. Whole30, Keto, Paleo and Gluten Free. 

  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 5 servings 1x



Chicken Wings

  • 2.53 lbs Chicken Wings 
  • 3/4 cup almond flour (See notes*)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp pepper 
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Top Coating

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp dried chives
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/3 cup melted ghee


  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Add a rack to a baking sheet and place all of the wings on top of the rack. (The wire rack allows the wings to get crispy all the way around). If you don’t have a wire rack, just line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place wings on top.
  2. Prepare the wings by placing them in a bowl and drizzle with 2 tbsp of olive oil.
    In a separate bowl, add the almond flour, salt, pepper, parsley, onion and garlic powder and mix together. 
  3. Place each wing in the almond flour mixture and coat evenly. Just give each wing a good dusting and don’t over do it. 
  4. Place the coated wings on the baking sheet/wired rack and transfer to the oven and bake for for 15 minutes then remove the wings from the oven and turn them. Add back to the oven to cook for 15-20 more minutes or until crispy. 
  5. When the wings are completely done cooking, remove from the oven and add to a big Tupperware bowl that has a lid. Pour over the melted ghee along with the other seasoning. 
  6. Place the lid on the container and shake until the wings are covered in the ghee and seasoning. 
  7. Enjoy with sliced carrots, celery and my homemade ranch dressing. 


  • Feel free to omit the almond flour all together if you don’t want an additional coating. Instead of rolling the wings in the almond flour,  just add the olive oil to the wings and season with the salt, pepper, parsley, onion and garlic powder and add to the oven. Once cooked, add the wings to container along with the ghee and the rest of the seasoning and shake until completely coated. 
  • There will be lots of drippings in the bottom of the Tupperware. Just spoon that over the wings before serving for additional texture and flavor. 
  • Since these have a coating, be sure to shake in the ghee and seasoning right before serving so they don’t lose their crispy. 
  • These are best eaten the day they are made. If stored in the fridge they may become soggy. 
  • You can also cook this in the air fryer on 380F for 24 minutes, flipping halfway through. Bump up the heat to 400F and cook another 5 minutes.

    Hi! I can’t tolerate almonds…could you sub another flour? Thanks!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Feel free to try coconut or cassava flour. Cassava is high in carbs and would not be considered Keto though.

    Making this tonight! Can’t wait. I MIGHT use chicken thighs as decent wings aren’t always easy to find at my grocer. Thanks lady!

  8. Abby says:

    I made these tonight for the Super Bowl and they were amazing! I didn’t use a rack and they were still crispy.
    So good we didn’t even dip them in ranch!
    Great recipe!

  9. Whitney says:

    OH. MY. WORD. Easily the best wings I’ve ever had. Got drumbsticks from Target on sale and they were so meaty and had perfect skin for crisping. I followed the recipe to a T except I used a little less ghee. Didn’t need the full 1/3 cup. Air fryer is honestly the only way to go on these. I don’t feel they get crispy enough in the oven. The topping is really what makes them so so so good! Spot on with the sour cream and onion chip. Love you and all your recipes! Thank you.

  10. Emily Hutchens says:

    Holy moly! These wings are delicious! I have made 4 different wing recipes since getting my air fryer a few months ago, and these are by far the best! Rave reviews from my hubby and my 2 year old ate it right down to the bone (lol)
    Thank you for this awesome recipe!!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Thanks for making my day Emily. Isn’t if so satisfying to find a recipe that is loved by the entire family? You’re so welcome. Thank you for the kind words of support.
